ACORN Claims Democratic Officials Are Persecuting It

There was a time when the radical left-wing group ACORN claimed only that Republicans were out to persecute it. Now, it’s claiming that Democrats want to destroy it as well.

Attorney Lisa Rasmussen, who represents the extremely partisan ACORN which helps to register Democratic voters and get them to the polls, said that election-fraud charges laid against the group in Nevada are motivated by politics, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

“The politically motivated charges, such as those brought by the attorney general and secretary of state, just highlight the voter registration system that is broken,” Rasmussen said in a Las Vegas courtroom Wednesday.

But the charges (PDF) against ACORN and two of its former executives were unveiled by Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto and Secretary of State Ross Miller, both of whom are Democrats. Allegheny County, Pennsylvania District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr., who filed seven charges against former ACORN workers for falsifying voter registration forms, also happens to be a Democrat.

Maybe ACORN will cry “racism” now. Oh wait, Amy Busefink and Chris Edwards, the former ACORN officials in Nevada also charged with voter registration fraud, are both Caucasian, as evidenced by the photo accompanying the Las Vegas Review-Journal news report.

The defendants, who appeared before a Las Vegas magistrate Wednesday, are expected to appear in court next on July 15.

Perhaps attacking both major political parties is part of ACORN’s new public-relations strategy.
