Conservatives on lookout for election fraud

    The Wisconsin Club for Growth is urging fellow conservatives to watch out for election fraud in the wake of another conviction from the 2008 election cycle.
    Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says former ACORN employee Maria Miles has pleaded guilty to one count of election fraud for submitting multiple voter registration applications for the same individuals in Milwaukee during the 2008 election cycle.
    According to the criminal complaint, Miles worked for ACORN and served as a Special Registration Deputy (“SRD”) for the City of Milwaukee in advance of the 2008 presidential election. By entering the guilty plea,  Miles also admitted to being part of a scheme in which she and other SRDs registered each other to vote multiple times in order to meet voter registration quotas imposed by ACORN.
    Miles is charged in the same complaint as Kevin Clancy, another former ACORN worker. Clancy’s case is scheduled for a guilty plea hearing on Sept. 22 at 8:30 a.m.
    Miles faces up to 3.5 years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines for the felony charge. See the press release:
    “This conviction along with several recent voter fraud indictments, highlight the importance of having well trained observers at the polls on Election Day,”‘ said the Wisconsin Club for Growth.
    The conservative group urged people to volunteer to serve as Election Day poll watchers, and touted training sessions backed by a group called We’re Watching Wisconsin Elections. The training sessions are in Waukesha Sept. 8 and West Allis Sept. 9.  In addition, the group has posted training materials for election observers.
