Drudge and the army of lies that is the engine of the Modern Right are screaming about this story, carrying on their neverending war on the good people at ACORN. What they won't point you to is this, from the very story they link to:

Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernández Rundle praised ACORN.

"We've been very aggressive about a lot of these cases,'' she said. "But we would not have known about these workers unless ACORN brought it to us."

[Among its many other services for poor Americans] ACORN hires people to register primarily poor, minority Americans. The Modern Right hates them for that. (Why? You decide.) Sometimes the people they hire are lazy liars, and they fill out registration forms with names they've made up in order to make money for less work than actually registering people. ACORN look out for these people, and they notify authorities when they find them. Professional liars like Drudge and Malkin then point to these cases and try to use them against ACORN. Why?

You decide.
