Integrity Needed–House Of Representatives Members Need Not Apply

According to the Washington Times, the investigation into the activities of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) during the last election cycle has been stopped in the House of Representatives.  The organization is charged with voter fraud in a number of states, i.e. registering the Dallas Cowboys starting lineup to vote in Nevada, registering Mickey Mouse to vote in Florida (at least he met the residency requirement!), and intimidating voters in Philadelphia.

According to the article:

“The groups came under fire during the campaign after probes into suspected voter fraud in a series of presidential battleground states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Mexico and Nevada.

ACORN and its affiliates are currently the target of at least 14 lawsuits related to voter fraud in the 2008 election and a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act complaint filed by former ACORN members.”

If we expect to have an honest election in 2010, I suggest that someone take a good look at the tactics of this group.  It’s a shame that Congress will not do its job and investigate them.
