ACORN, The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, gaining infamy both for its massive voter fraud attempts and heavily Democratic backing in Congress, including a $100M earmark in the bailout bill, just had its Vegas office raided.

ACORN office in Vegas raided in voter-fraud probe
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada state authorities are raiding the Las Vegas headquarters of an organization that works to get low-income people to vote.
A Nevada secretary of state's office spokesman said Tuesday that investigators are looking for evidence of voter fraud at the office of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also called ACORN.
No one was at the ACORN office when state agents arrived with a search warrant and began carting records and documents away.
Secretary of State spokesman Bob Walsh says ACORN is accused of submitting multiple voter registrations with false and duplicate names.
The raid comes two months after state and federal authorities formed a task force to pursue election-fraud allegations in Nevada.
More details, from the Las Vegas Review Journal:
Agents with the state attorney general's and secretary of state's offices served a search warrant this morning on the new ACORN headquarters. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now office is located at 953 E. Sahara Ave.
The warrant was part of an ongoing investigation into suspected voter registration fraud. Employees are suspected of using false addresses or false names, including those of former Dallas Cowboys, according to the secretary of state's office.
A number of DJs have also been reporting on ACORN as of late, some highlighting ACORN's long-term close relationship with Barack Obama.
On a side note, ACORN reports having registered 1.3M new voters. How many of those are illegals, fictitious, dead or pure imagination have yet to be sorted out.
The timing of this raid could not be better, with major elections less than a month away, though some would say it is long overdue. ACORN has been engaging in blatant voter fraud for years.
