The new Republican attack on ACORN is a complete fraud and a smoke screen for what probably will be a wingnut attempt to use the confusion about ACORN to actually suppress legally registered voters in battleground states. As most progressives realize, in effect ACORN is a victim here too. ACORN has warned their registration canvassers that they are subject to criminal prosecution if they submit fraudulent registrations. A small number of these individuals apparently driven by the fact they are being paid for registrations based on a quota have let greed and stupidity take over and have ignored the warnings. But no one is actually voting in an election based on a phony registration. A point that Republicans conveniently fail to emphasize.
