The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office issued arrest warrants for each of the 11 suspects, all of whom worked for the local chapter of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, (ACORN).
Apparently it was ACORN that turned themselves in.
But ACORN officials said they had alerted authorities about the alleged illegal activity among some canvassers in Miami-Dade after finding ``numerous discrepancies'' on voter cards collected from the Homestead area.
The arrests are ``further evidence we've been policing our own folks and report people attempting to commit voter registration fraud,'' said ACORN spokesman Brian Kettenring. ``This was really some individuals who were trying to defraud their employer.''
I'm willing to give ACORN some benefit of the doubt in this case. However, the fact remains that ACORN's methods have always encouraged this type of conduct.
Update: These ACORN folks just can't help themselves. LINK
