Yes, but it was primarily related to Democrats stuffing ballots in the Democrat strong holds. You can't make a bulging chad with a single voting card and the punch. However, if you stack them 10 deep, then you get good punches on the top and bulging chads on the bottom

He had/has nothing to do with the operations of acorn he was simply hired by them as a lawyer. if that isnt clear enough i will be happy to answer any questions.
Obama's campaign gave them $800,000 to register new voters to help his Presidential campaign. As a lawyer of theirs, he had to know their long history of registration fraud problems, but he didn't care.
The main way the vote fraud works is that when the polls close there are a bunch of ballots that are there for the people that didn't vote. The poll workers take those ballots and vote for the people that didn't show up. Why didn't they show up? Some just didn't show, some died (that's a big source of dead voters), some moved, some where bad registrations, etc. If ACORN increases the voter registration, some will be legitimate and they will vote, the rest will be a large pool of ballots that will be available to stuff in the ballot box after the polls close.
Sadly this probably ocurrs in every major city in the country. It requires an overwhelming dominance by one party and a lot of unvoted ballots at the end of the day. This is the situation in most major cities and especially the very poor precincts with in these cities. Pollworkers that show up at these sites are intimidated and sometimes threatened.
Republicans do it too, but it is rare for Republicans to dominate in highly populated areas, so they simply can't stuff as many ballots. There was a couny in Texas, if I remember correctly, had a 150% voter turnout. That's even better than Chicago.
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
