In light of the reports of voter fraud being committed in Michigan by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a reader sends along this story from a few weeks ago reporting that dozens of ACORN workers are similarly under investigation for voter fraud in Milwaukee:

• Seventeen apparently filled out voter applications and then signed the cards themselves. That involved two to four cards in each case.

• Twelve submitted cards for individuals who later told ACORN they never filled out an application. That involved one card in each case.

• One submitted a card for a dead voter. That was the second such case; a Voters Project worker previously submitted a card for a deceased voter.

• One was apparently making up driver's license numbers for an unknown number of voters.

• One submitted about a half-dozen applications for already-registered voters.

In 2004, ACORN-related voter fraud plagued Milwaukee County. Bush lost Wisconsin that year by 11,000 votes.
