Pennsylvania Republican Party sues ACORN and state
The Pennsylvania Republican Party is suing the state and ACORN in state Commonwealth Court. According to the report, the party is alleging voter fraud and seeks an order requiring ACORN to provide lists of voters it has registered and to finance public service announcements that would remind first-time voters that they must present identification at the polls. The news report notes that the Allegheny County district attorney's office is investigating possible voter registration fraud involving fewer than 100 applications collected by ACORN. Election Law @ Moritz will post more information as it becomes available.
