Remember when Bertha Lewis Said that ACORN has never committed Voter Fraud? I had forgotten about this report we published here this past June:
Back in October 2008 the NY Post reported that Darnell Nash, a person who has a criminal record both as a man and as a woman, was being investigated for registering to vote numerous times and cast at least one bogus vote with a fake address,all with the help of ACORN. This was part of a larger investigation of ACORN which revealed that nearly 4,000 registration applications supplied by the “community organizing” group were suspect.(See video above)
The vote of Darnell Nash, one of four people subpoenaed in a Cuyahoga County probe of ACORN’s voter-registration activities, was canceled and his case was turned over to local prosecutors and law enforcement, Board of Elections officials said yesterday.
Nash had registered to vote repeatedly from an address that belonged to a legitimately registered voter, officials said during a hearing at which the subpoenaed voters were to testify.
Board officials had contacted Nash this summer, questioned his address and told him to stop repeat registering.
“He came in on 9/30 and Mr. Nash again registered to vote at [someone else’s] address, and he cast a ballot,” said board official Jane Platten.
In June Nash was finally arrested:
.Darnell Nash has been indicted on felonious charges of tampering with records, false registration and illegal voting. The Cuyahoga County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation.Nash is accused of registering to vote nine times using fake names and addresses in Shaker Heights and Cleveland. Nash registered via ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. He is accused of registering and voting at the Board of Elections using a false address on Lee Road in Shaker Heights.
In the end, Nash entered a guilty plea to one count of casting a fraudulent ballot and to several counts of false registration on August 5. On August 19 he was sentenced to six months imprisonment by Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Nancy Margaret Russo.
I guess that makes one cross-dressing ACORN voter in Jail, and one slightly (very) dishonest ACORN CEO.
Today, Matthew Vadum at Big Government tells what has happened to Nash since he was jailed as well as the on-going ACORN investigation in Ohio.
