Vote Fraud Criminal Darnell Nash Should Be ACORN’s Poster Boy

Although Glenn Beck has followed the ACORN saga closely for the most part, for reasons unknown he failed to discuss an important breaking story Thursday that concerns ACORN.

He missed a golden opportunity.

That’s because Darnell Nash (his mug shot appears above) was recently convicted of vote fraud in addition to the lesser crime of voter-registration fraud.

Who is Darnell Nash? He’s a Cleveland-based, cross-dressing male escort whom ACORN registered multiple times to vote. No evidence of criminal activity by ACORN with regard to the Nash case has been discovered — yet. ACORN remains under investigation by the prosecutor’s office in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

The conviction of Nash, known by various aliases including Serina “Sexy Slay” Gibbs, is incredibly significant for a number of reasons, not least of which is the fact that ACORN has long maintained that vote fraud, as opposed to the much more common crime of voter-registration fraud, basically never happens.

ACORN’s Project Vote affiliate has tried to get rid of the problem of vote fraud by defining it out of existence. Lorraine C. Minnite, a political science professor at Columbia University’s Barnard College, argues in an ACORN/Project Vote report called “The Politics of Voter Fraud” that “[t]he claim that voter fraud threatens the integrity of American elections is itself a fraud.” Minnite is also a senior fellow at the liberal think tank Demos, which is funded by wealthy liberal troublemaker George Soros through his Open Society Institute.

While ACORN has not yet been charged in Ohio, the fact that an individual voter registered by ACORN has been given a six-month prison term for casting a fraudulent ballot seems to be yet another historic first for the embattled radical advocacy group.
