Detroit County Brings Ex-Acorn Worker to Justice

Jemar Barksdale will serve between six and twenty-three months of home confinement following his guilty plea – he was one of the ACORN workers who falsified voter registration cards in Pennsylvania.  He will also need to pay ACORN $574 in restitution because he forged the registration cards.  

ACORN is the neighborhood-based organization that advocates for underfunded communities and new votor registration.  Its voter registration program has been investigated for fraud, especially following the 2008 Presidential Election.  ACORN appears to be cooporating with the investigation.
