Missouri election officials are investigating voter fraud allegations, sifting through hundreds of questionable voter registration forms submitted by an advocacy group called Acorn.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, registers low-income voters around the country, but the group's volunteers allegedly falsified forms with fake names and addresses.
Is the Acorn connection and the voter fraud issues likely to affect Barack Obama on Election Day? Watch Regent University's Charles Dunn, following this report.
Missouri is just one of several states investigating the group. Earlier this week, Nevada authorities raided an ACORN office in Las Vegas.
"Some of the forms came in with starting lineups for the Dallas Cowboys. So it was pretty easy to see that there is some potential fraudulent activity taking place," said Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller.
ACORN representatives say some voter fraud is unavoidable. The group blames inefficiency and a lack of resources for being unable to spot duplicate voter registration cards.
No connection has been claimed between the Obama campaign and ACORN's recent activities. But Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund told CBN News the group could cause problems on Election Day.
"Barack Obama was a former trainer for ACORN and he was their lawyer for several years," Fund said. "So ACORN and Obama are very closely linked."
"Obama has never criticized ACORN's methods and I fear that Acorn is going to be injected in this election in a way that will cause the results to be in doubt," he said. "That they engage in something very akin to voter fraud and that we have a problem here because if the election is not legitimate, I think we could be headed for a crisis of confidence in the results."
Fund is also author of the book Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy.
