[Milwaukee, Wisc...] A Milwaukee man charged with election fraud arising out of his work for the controversial ACORN group during the 2008 Presidential Election has plead guilty to the felony charges against him.
Kevin Clancy was charged with one count of Falsely Procuring Voter Registration as Party to a Crime by the Election Fraud Task Force, a collaborative effort between the Department of Justice, the Milwaukee District Attorney’s Office and the Milwaukee Police Department.
“The integrity of elections is dependent upon citizens and officials insisting they be conducted lawfully,” Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen told MacIver News. “Wisconsin’s citizens should not have to wonder whether their vote has been negated or diminished by illegally cast ballots.”
According to the criminal complaint, Clancy served as a Special Registration Deputy (“SRD”) for the City of Milwaukee in advance of the 2008 Presidential Election. He worked for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (“ACORN”).
Clancy was accused of submitting multiple voter registration applications for the same individuals, and also was part of a scheme in which he and other SRDs registered each other to vote multiple times in order to meet voter registration quotas imposed by ACORN.
