Pennsylvania Court Denies GOP Request to Enjoin ACORN

Since Wednesday, the testimony of a former ACORN employee that the community-organizing group barely trained workers and then “threw them under the bus” to take the legal blame for fraudulent voter-registration cards they submitted has made the rounds on mainstream newsites and right-wing blogs. But for some reason, the fact that the court in that case denied the GOP’s request for a preliminary injunction against ACORN and Pennsylvania elections officials hasn’t gotten nearly as much attention.

The court’s ruling Thursday afternoon was a big victory for the Assn. of Community Organizations for Reform Now and a big loss for its GOP critics. Republicans wanted ACORN to turn over copies of all the voter-registration forms it had submitted in Pennsylvania and for the state’s elections officials to check the IDs of all new voters. The judge ruled that the Republican Party had “failed to persuade the court that they are likely to prevail on the merits” — despite the testimony of Anita Moncrief, the former ACORN employee.

Moncrief, by the way, was fired by ACORN for using the organization’s credit card to amass $3,000 in personal expenses. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that since January, she has had two jobs and is now unemployed. She also testified that she never actually worked on voter registration with ACORN in Pennsylvania.

A similar lawsuit against the community organizing group is pending in Ohio. That one, brought by the Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Solutions, a conservative/libertarian group, seeks the dissolution of ACORN.
