ACORN Accuses GOP of Scare Tactics

Ad Feedback

A voter activist group under fire for charges of voter fraud rolled out new attacks Wednesday against those accusations and against the McCain campaign.

In a 30 second ad, The Association of Community Organizations for Reform, or ACORN, accused McCain and the Republicans of intimidating voters and attempting to keep them from going to the polls.

The group also held a news conference Wednesday, where representatives blasted Republicans for employing a "historical goal" of using scare tactics to challenge voters.

"The real issue here is a coordinated attempt to discourage people from voting," ACORN chief organizer Bertha Lewis said. "We must be vigilant in ensuring that every single American who should be voting gets to vote and that no one stands in their way."

ACORN plans to sue against any attempts of alleged voter suppression.

The group has been in the spotlight recently over accusations of voter fraud.

ACORN has admitted that some of their employees created false voter forms to pad their pay, but they say those employees have been fired.
