Darnell Nash, a voter in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, has been indicted by a grand jury for, among other things, illegal voting.
Nash was registered to vote by ACORN.
Ryan Miday, spokesman for Cuyahoga County, Ohio Prosecutor Bill Mason, a Democrat, just spoke with me.
Miday said an “investigation is continuing into activities by ACORN. Darnell Nash is the first we’ve charged in this ongoing investigation.”
“ACORN workers approached him to fill out voter registration cards and he did so on nine different occasions using different names and addresses, then he actually registered and voted on Sept. 30 and voted with a different address and the address was an address here in the Cleveland area in a suburb called Shaker Heights.”
Miday said that the Shaker Heights address is important because the person who actually lives there alerted the authorities after multiple registration acknowledgement documents came in the mail. Nash’s vote was then flagged and Nash came to the attention of the board of elections. It held an administrative board hearing and summoned Nash to appear but he failed to show up for the hearing.
“After the election ACORN had to turn over all its voter registration cards and those amounted to about 70,000,” Miday said. “The sheriff’s office in Cuyahoga County has been going through mounds of paperwork.”
“The activities by ACORN are being looked at. Through the investigation a number of employees of ACORN have been interviewed,” said Miday.
The investigation is ongoing, he repeated.
Updated 9 p.m.: The New York Post previously reported on Darnell Nash’s exploits. (I knew that name sounded familiar but I couldn’t quite place it.) He or she is a unique individual. Here’s a New York Post video about Nash (hat tip: Yid With Lid):
