|Connecticut||CT ACORN||2008||Registration Fraud||Two Republican registrars of voters brought complaints to the State Elections Enforcement Commission that hundreds of registration applications ACORN submitted to them were "problem cards." The Commission investigated ACORN's actions near the registrars' cities, Bridgeport and Stamford. An investigation found there was not enough evidence to "determine that CT ACORN had an institutional or systemic role in designing and implementing a scheme or strategy to fraudulently register or enroll electors" in the two cities. The Commission took no further action.||http://seec.ct.gov/e2casebase/data/fd/fd_2008_131%20&135.pdf|
