Sometimes news is stranger that fiction. Lisa Rasmussen, who represents the extremely partisan ACORN, said that election fraud charges laid against the group in Nevada are motivated by politics, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
“The politically motivated charges, such as those brought by the attorney general and secretary of state, just highlight the voter registration system that is broken,” Rasmussen said in a Las Vegas courtroom.
Except that the charges (PDF) against two former ACORN executives and ACORN, which helps to register Democratic voters and get them to the polls, were unveiled by Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and Secretary of State Ross Miller both of whom are Democrats. Allegheny County, Pa., District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr., who filed seven charges against former ACORN workers for falsifying voter registration forms, also happens to be a Democrat.
Maybe ACORN will cry racism now. Oh wait, Amy Busefink and Chris Edwards, the former ACORN officials in Nevada also charged with voter registration fraud, are Caucasian according to the photo accompanying the Las Vegas Review-Journal news report.
The defendants, who appeared before a Las Vegas magistrate today, are expected to appear in court next on July 15.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
