ACORN Executive Pleads No Contest To Election Fraud Conspiracy

By on 11.8.10 | 10:10PM

ACORN executive Amy Busefink has pleaded "no contest" to conspiracy to commit voter registration fraud in Nevada, the Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting. Sentencing is set for Jan. 10.

Busefink ran the 2010 national voter drive for ACORN's notorious subsidiary, Project Vote, which was President Obama's employer in 1992.

ACORN, which filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Election Day to escape its debts, is also charged with multiple counts of the same crime in Nevada.

The bankruptcy filing is a public relations ruse. The group is reorganizing and will reemerge again soon under a new name, according to ACORN historian and housing activist John Atlas, who wrote Seeds of Change.

The nonprofit group's trial is scheduled for Nov. 29 in Las Vegas.
