ACORN Acknowledges Voter Fraud, Blames a Few 'Bad Apples' ACORN leaders acknowledge that there has been voter registration fraud, but they say it is not as bad as voter suppression and intimidation that they say has occurred in previous elections.

ACORN leaders acknowledged Tuesday that there has been voter registration fraud this year, but they said it was not as widespread as the voter suppression and intimidation they say has occurred in previous elections.

"Yes, we know there's been fraud. With a staff of some 13,000 canvassers, there will be some bad apples in the bunch," an ACORN official said at a news conference.

The official explained that state law requires the community organizing group to turn in every application it collects.

"It's up to state elections officials to weed out those that aren't legit," the official said, adding that all applications are marked as good, missing information, or suspect.

Among the suspect applications were ones filled out by "Mickey Mouse" and the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys football team.

ACORN says it has signed up 1.3 million poor and working-class voters this year in a mass registration drive in 18 states. Some of the registration cards have become the focus of fraud investigations in Ohio, Nevada, Connecticut, Missouri and other states.

ACORN is a favorite target of Republican officials complaining about voter registration fraud. John McCain recently launched a Web ad attacking Obama for his ties to the group. But ACORN fought back Tuesday by writing McCain a letter, asking the Republican presidential candidate to help the group protect the voting rights of Americans who have lost their homes to foreclosure in several states.

The group also noted in its letter that McCain spoke at a pro-immigration rally in Florida in 2006 that the group co-sponsored.

"While in recent weeks your campaign has stooped to engaging in tactics that do not reflect the John McCain who proudly appeared at the 2006 ACORN event, we hold out hope that the 2008 John McCain will do the right thing and call upon his take the necessary steps to protect the public's constitutional right to participate in our nation's democracy," the letter said.

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis replied by noting that McCain is still awaiting a response from Barack Obama's campaign to a request made a month earlier to help tackle Election Day problems, including voter fraud.

"Given the extensive relationship between Barack Obama and ACORN, our campaign also feels that Sen. Obama has a responsibility to rein in ACORN's efforts and to work aggressively against wide-scale voter fraud," Davis said in a written statement.

"If left uncorrected, these numerous investigations and accusations of voter fraud with ACORN could produce a nightmare scenario on Election Day."
