Union-backed fraud looms over 2008 vote in key swing-states

As the November election draws near, elections officials say fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications seem to be a widespread problem in Michigan. According to the Detroit Free Press, most of the questionable applications have been submitted to local clerks by ACORN, a nationwide advocacy group for low and moderate-income families.

A spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State says her office has turned over several of the applications to the US Attorney's Office, but wouldn't confirm whether an investigation was taking place. A spokesman for the group says ACORN will conduct its own investigation, but adds that any problems were probably not intentional.
