ACORN leads the Axelrod-style astroturf group known as Health Care for America Now, which organized the rally.
Meanwhile, the Kansas City Star reports that Missouri settled a voter registration lawsuit by agreeing to pay ACORN $450,000 in legal expenses.
“The lawsuit has led to a 2,000 percent increase in the number of people registering to vote at Missouri public assistance agencies,” said legal team spokesman Jon Greenbaum. “We appreciate that since they’ve been under court order, Missouri’s Department of Social Services has been a national model in showing how to implement this law.”
It was unclear at press time what percentage of the newly registered voters were dead people and cartoon characters.
