HARTFORD, Conn. — The Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission is looking into a complaint alleging that a community advocacy group submitted fraudulent voter registration cards in Bridgeport.

Joseph Borges (R), Bridgeport’s registrar of voters, filed the complaint. He said he has found problems with numerous voter registration cards submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, which works to register low-income people.

In one instance, he said a card was filled out for a 7-year-old girl, whose age was listed as 27.

The group filed more than 8,000 cards in Bridgeport. The complaint involves 10, but Borges said there were problems with others.

The group works in low-income communities that trend Democratic. Republicans have used the reports of fraud to raise questions about the possibility of more widespread misdeeds and Election Day antics, such as using phony voter registrations to cast absentee ballots.

The group said the complaints are part of an effort by Republicans to discredit voter registration drives across the nation.

- lol, I must admit I love that excuse... it isn't ACORN that is doing it, it's those evil Republicans.
