Election and law enforcement officials, along with a private organization, have done an enormous service for Ohio residents. Their work should be emulated by those in other states.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN - has a track record of shady practices in registering people to vote in several states. ACORN is no more than a support group for ultra-liberal politicians.
When evidence of voter registration fraud in Ohio surfaced, law enforcement and election officials investigated. Pressure they put on the group was followed up by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, a libertarian center in Columbus. The center filed a lawsuit against ACORN.
Last week a federal judge approved an agreement between the center and ACORN. It calls for ACORN to end its activities in Ohio.
On March 4th, the Circuit Court of Baltimore City dismissed ACORN’s suit against James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and Breitbart LLC. According to court documents, posted by Ben Sheffner at Big Government.com, ACORN failed to serve the complaint against the three within the 120 day limit established by Maryland law. Sheffner says that the suit was a public relations bluff, a “press release on pleading papers.”(from examiner.com)
