Rokita Seeks Criminal Probe of ACORN
Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita has requested a criminal investigation into the activities of ACORN which has been under scrutiny in Lake County. The request cites over 1,400 questionable voter registrations in that county. "This is a fraud perpetrated on all of the people of Indiana, because fraudulent registrations are the first step in diluting the voice of honest voters and rendering an inaccurate tally on Election Day," Rokita stated in his request to state and federal law enforcement officials. Federal law enforcement is also looking into the matter in Indiana as well as many other states.
