I don't defend them, but I like the truth, and the truth is that ACORN has never tried to assist someone in voting twice, and nobody has ever used an ACORN registration to vote twice.
So ACORN did not help Obama win through voter fraud as many contend.
As for nobody being in jail for Ohio in 2004 - you didn't read. There are two people headed to jail - low level people of course but that's always the way.
Still - alot more information about proven voter fraud in Ohio in 2004 (like Bush getting more votes in one country than there were registered voters - a 124% turnout) than has ever been associtated with ACORN.
Two people going to jail in Ohio is not overwhelming evidence of fraud.

Now on the other hand,there are a number of states where ACORN has been charged with voter fraud.

Elsewhere, Washington state prosecutors fined Acorn $25,000 after several
employees were convicted of voter registration fraud in 2007. The group
signed a consent decree with King County (Seattle), requiring it to beef up
its oversight or face criminal prosecution. In the 2008 election, Acorn's
practices led to investigations, some ongoing,

There's a nice little investigation of ACORN going on in Louisiana. Let's see what they come up with when they look through the finances. Or do you think the books will disappear like the climate crisis data did?

ACORN embezzlement was $5 million, La. attorney general says

Louisiana's attorney general has broadened the scope of an investigation of
ACORN to include a possible embezzlement of $5 million a decade ago within
the community organization, five times more than previously reported.

ACORN Chief Executive Officer Bertha Lewis said the new reported amount is
"completely false."

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has been conducting an investigation of
ACORN since June. He issued subpoenas in August seeking documents related to
former ACORN International President Wade Rathke and his brother Dale
Rathke, who kept the group's books. Those subpoenas were focused on possible
ACORN violations for non-payment of employee withholding taxes, obstructing
justice and violating the Employee Retirement Security Act. No charges have
been made.

The attorney general had inquired in June into an alleged embezzlement
within ACORN that happened 10 years ago. The group last year dealt with an
internal dispute and a lawsuit involving accusations that Dale Rathke made
nearly $1 million in improper credit card charges in 1999 and 2000. The
brother and a donor repaid the money.

Ellis Lucia / The Times-PicayuneState Attorney General Buddy Caldwell
Caldwell said last month that the statute of limitations presented obstacles
to prosecutors taking action on the embezzlement, and that his investigation
was not focused on that issue. The subpoena issued Monday changed the tone
of the investigation and put a new emphasis on the embezzlement issue.

"Current high-ranking members of ACORN have publicly acknowledged that
embezzlement did in fact occur, but the exact amount of the embezzlement was
unknown until it was recently acknowledged in a board of directors meeting
on Oct. 17, 2008, by Bertha Lewis and Liz Wolf that an internal review had
determined that the amount embezzled was $5 million, " the new subpoena
says.

Acorn has never been accused of voter fraud, and the overwhelming everidence is not the two people going to jail - its the evidence listed in the congressional report on the ohio elections.

Follow the link I posted. It's scary. In ohio fraudulent votes were actually cast, when ACORN has never once been associated with a fraudlent vote.
