Missouri on the ACORN Case.

Here we go again:

Missouri officials suspect fake voter registration

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group that has been accused of election fraud in other states.

Charlene Davis, co-director of the election board in Jackson County, where Kansas City is, said the fraudulent registration forms came from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. She said they were bogging down work Wednesday, the final day Missourians could register to vote.

“I don’t even know the entire scope of it because registrations are coming in so heavy,” Davis said. “We have identified about 100 duplicates, and probably 280 addresses that don’t exist, people who have driver’s license numbers that won’t verify or Social Security numbers that won’t verify. Some have no address at all.”

The AP article goes on to – fairly laughably – categorize key Democratic Party ally ACORN as “nonpartisan,” not to mention typing with a straight face the blithe reassurance that this is all due to us evil, evil Republicans wanting to disenfranchise lower income voters. I write this because both I and the AP know that eight of its members were recently convicted in St Louis for voter fraud in the last election. I understand that ACORN loooooooves its “few rotten apples” argument, but when you keep getting nothing but rotten apples from every barrel that you sample, at some point you really do need to look at the way the barrels are being put together.

Which is what’s happening now.
