GOP voter registration fraud case leads to arrest - Los Angeles Times

Quote:
SACRAMENTO -- The owner of a firm that the California Republican Party hired to register tens of thousands of voters this year was arrested in Ontario late last night on suspicion of voter registration fraud.

State and local investigators allege that Mark Jacoby fraudulently registered himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California.

Wow...this is actually far worse than the Acorn thing. This guy wasn't even a resident of the US, he is Canadian. On top of that, he lied to people to get their information by telling them they were trying to get names for a petition for stricter laws on child molesters. Then he took those names and info and registered them AS Republicans.

The difference is that he duped real people into registering as Republicans, as well as mis-representing himself. The fake names that a few of the Acorn reps turned in, ie Mickey Mouse, will never vote and are purely fictional.

"State and local investigators allege that Mark Jacoby fraudulently registered himself to vote at a childhood California address where he no longer lives so he would appear to meet the legal requirement that signature gatherers be eligible to vote in California.

Jacoby's arrest by state investigators and the Ontario Police Department comes after dozens of voters said they were duped into registering as Republicans by his firm, Young Political Majors, or YPM. The voters said YPM tricked them by saying they were signing a petition to toughen penalties against child molesters. The firm was paid $7 to $12 for every Californian it registered as a member of the GOP."

At the LA Times this is the Most Viewed story, though not yet the most emailed story. It'll be national tomorrow...
