Voter registration fraud, Republican style

This article in the LA Times proves the point of my earlier post that defended ACORN in that any aggressive campaign to register voters will end up with some bad eggs playing games with registrations. This does not mean we shouldn't aggressively register voters, but it does mean we should ratchet down the rhetoric that is emanating against ACORN, particularly when right-wing zanies are feeling really angry that the "socialist black man" might become president.

The pro-Republican group mentioned in the first linked article appears different from ACORN, however, because the pro-Republican group appears to be knowingly defrauding people into registering Republican--and that there is a pattern to the pro-Republican groups' tactics around the nation.
