ACORN, as are all organizations that register voters, whether it is for Democrats, Republicans, Greens or simply out of the goodness of their hearts, bless them, are required to turn over every form that their employees have filled out. This is my understanding of the registration law as it stands.
This provision of the law seems designed to keep, say, ACORN, from registering a wide number of people and then discarding all the voters who wish to be registered as members of The Green Party. Under the impression they were registered, these folks might then show up at the polls and find they were not on the rolls. Making sure that every form is turned in to the registrar means that this doesn't happen.
These forms are all reviewed by the company responsible for running the local voter registration effort. Some of the forms as they come in to ACORN or other headquarters, depending on the company running the effort, are obviously bogus, and are caught on a first inspection. These forms are set aside and bundled. They are turned in to the registrar by ACORN or whatever other company is doing the work because they must be, by law, and they are checked by the registrar because they must be, by law, to make sure that there really is no Dudley Doright at 1000 Bullwinckle Way in Frostbite Falls, MN. While it seems pretty much impossible on the face of it, you never really do know, and if there is a real Mr. Doright, his civil rights must be protected. Usually, though, Mr. Doright's presence in the "questionable" pile is justified. ACORN or whatever other organization usually catches most of these dubious registrations. The registrars themselves will catch others. As a further check, both parties will frequently station observers at the polls to make sure that any apparent instances of fraud are challenged.
The "frauds" that the Republicans seem to be talking about, seems to be those registrations already bundled and presented as questionable by ACORN itself. A look at the longer paper I quoted above will speak about that. What we have here is a distortion of the facts. I suspect that neither Mike nor Denise is aware of this, because the party is certainly not making a point of letting it be known. The distortion, amounting to a lie by omission is simply fine by them; or else they might simply correct the untruth and stop spreading it.
I haven't seen this thus far, and I don't assume it likely in the near future.
The 30,000 felons that the Republicans are allowed to vote illegally in Florida are another story entirely. That gets out of the realm of voter fraud, where people are trying to be registered to vote who aren't allowed to, and gets into the realm of election fraud, where people are being stricken from the rolls who have a legal right to vote for the benefit — in this case — of the Republican Party.
Rather than me going off on the subject right here and now, I think I'd rather let people do their own research and thinking and, should they wish to discuss the issue further, bring the information back for discussion. It seems simply a red herring at this point, though an interesting one.
