Nevada: Acorn Is Fined in Vote Scheme

The defunct community organizing group Acorn was fined the maximum $5,000 in a voter registration scheme. Judge Donald Mosley of Clark County District Court handed down the fine on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Acorn authorized a Las Vegas operative to run a voter-registration program in the 2008 election cycle that paid cash for signing up voters and forced workers to meet quotas.  (NYT)
