  •  thr publicized number of 1.3 million registered (0+ / 0-)

    includes all of the bad rv apps. Now that there's been a big fuss, I expect we will someday see a corrected number that otherwise we would never have seen; and if it is significantly below 1.3 million. I expect we'll here something about a reduction in grant money for ACORN.

    I've talked to a few ACORN workers on the street here in Las Vegas, and one here at DK.

    Everyone's account is consistent with the others, as are the reports in the media.

    If you can find a bottom-tier ACORN employee with a different story, you'll introduce me to some doubt -- I'm wide open to it.

    And no the guilty will not be prosecuted, because "terrorizing" workers in the manner I described in my response to Kathleen is perfectly legal, as are most methods employers use to terrorize the minimum wage  crowd.

      is the number of registered voters.

      Not the number of applications for registration.

      Where did you get that they count the number of forms turned in and not the number of new voters on the various state registrars' voter rolls?

      Where are you getting your info?

      And how is it legal to extort employees into breaking the law?
