Brown-Waite adds to ACORN outrage
“ACORN officials have been convicted of voter fraud. Acorn officials have been accused of voter fraud in my district and in districts across the country. It is unfortunate that is took a hidden camera investigation to finally shed light on the pervasive illegal on goings within this organization. My constituents are asking, ‘Where has our media been?’ The Governor needs to sever all ties between the State of Florida and this shady group.”
Recently eleven Florida-based ACORN employees were charged with falsifying information on hundreds of voter registration cards. A recent hidden camera investigation shows ACORN employees offering advice on tax evasion, prostitution, and fraud. Just last week, the U.S. Census Bureau ended its association with ACORN saying in a release, “it is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public."
