Keith Olbermaqnn & Bob Bauer on ACORN
So, now that a Republican has been arrested and charged with voter registration fraud, I'm sure that the GOP will be claiming that Republicans are trying to "rig the election," right?
SACRAMENTO -- The owner of a firm that the California Republican Party hired to register tens of thousands of voters this year was arrested in Ontario late last night on suspicion of voter registration fraud.
State and local investigators allege that Mark Jacoby fraudulently registered himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California.
Jacoby's arrest by state investigators and the Ontario Police Department comes after dozens of voters said they were duped into registering as Republicans by his firm, Young Political Majors, or YPM. The voters said YPM tricked them by saying they were signing a petition to toughen penalties against child molesters. The firm was paid $7 to $12 for every Californian it registered as a member of the GOP.
Oh, that's right. When fraud is committed against ACORN, that's Democrats trying to steal an election. When Republicans are arrested for voter registration fraud, that's a different story...
