Nevada ACORN Amy Busefink (ACORN Regional Director) Christopher Edwards (ACORN Nevada Field Director) 2008 General 2008 Reigistration fraud 1 In 2011, Nevada District Court Judge Donald Mosley gave ACORN, the defunct grass-roots community organization, the maximum fine of $5,000 for its illegal voter-registration scheme in that state during the 2008 presidential election. Mosley, reading the pre-sentence report, listed a series of voter registration fraud allegations against ACORN workers. ACORN pleaded* guilty to one felony count of unlawful compensation for registration of voters, stemming from an illegal voter registration scheme in its Las Vegas office during in the 2008 race. The group paid a bonus to workers to sign up 21 or more voters per shift, calling the program "21," or "Blackjack." It is illegal in Nevada to pay bonuses to register voters. ACORN's Nevada field director, Christopher Edwards, had previously pleaded* guilty, cooperated with prosecutors, and testified against the organization in court. In October 2012, the Nevada Supreme Court accepted on appeal from an earlier conviction and Alford plea* to two counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters from ACORN'S regional director, Amy Busefink, who also worked for the nationwide group Project Vote. She was sentenced to probation. *Plea deal: $5,000 fine, for one felony count of unlawful compensation for registration of voters http://www.scribd.com/doc/109385627/Conviction-of-ACORN-Project-Vote-Conspirator... http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2011/08/10/judge-gives-maximum-and-fines-acorn-5... http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2012/10/09/nevada-acorn-conviction-uphel...
