Government begins to crack down on long-running abuses

A Milwaukee election official has asked prosecutors to investigate 32 more individuals regarding falsified voter registration cards they filed. There now are 39 paid workers from two liberal groups under scrutiny.

City Election Commission Executive Director Sue Edman says one of the groups alerted the commission staff about some questionable cards among the latest ones its workers collected. All of the workers being investigated are with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, or with the Community Voters Project.

Of the 32 workers referred to the Milwaukee County district attorney's office yesterday, Edman says 17 apparently filled out applications and signed the cards themselves. One card was for a voter who had died.
