Do you have evidence of [ACORN] fraud? Or just a bunch of alerts and name calling?

Not really following this thread, but perhaps this will help. It's a table listing the ACORN fraud convictions.

Note: that's the first hit for Googling "acorn convictions". It's not real hard to find.

It only lists people, though. The ACORN organization itself was also convicted of election fraud by the State of Nevada. Earlier, the ACORN organization settled a racketeering lawsuit in Ohio out of court... but I suppose one could claim they just settled to avoid the nuisance (although the settlement included an agreement for ACORN to permanently cease all operations in the state, which seems a high price to pay for nuisance avoidance).
