Partisan, union-backed voter fraud group disgraces U.S. election
Todd Rokita, Indiana secretary of state, is asking federal, state and local prosecutors to open an investigation into alleged fraudulent voter-registration applications, CBS 2 TV in Chicago reported.
Rokita said many registration applications filed by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or Acorn, have indications of fraud, forgery or incomplete information, according to the CBS affiliate.
In a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Attorney's Office, state Attorney General Steve Carter and Lake County Prosecutor Bernard Carter, Rokita asked investigators to treat inaccurate voter-registration applications as actual vote fraud, not registration fraud, CBS 2 said.
Acorn officials weren't immediately available for comment, the television station said.
