When it rains, it pours. The saying applies not just to water, but also apparently to “acorns.”

A further series of setbacks has befallen the liberal group since Andrew Breitbart’s blockbuster sting tape of the group aiding a supposed pimp and child-prostitution scam. In one of them, Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit noted that the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has been charged with hiring as vote canvassers people still serving prison time for, among other crimes, identity theft.

In a Fox News interview highlighted by Mr. Hoft, Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller, a Democrat, “said that by executing a search warrant at ACORN headquarters in Nevada the authorities were able to substantiate charges and have a very solid case against ACORN. They believe they can prove that it’s not just a few bad apples; it went much higher up in the organization. Ross believes that ACORN and the regional director should be held accountable for the criminal activity that took place in the state.”
