The New Yorker on the ACORN nonsense

John McCain, and the various elements of the Republican propaganda machine, have suddenly latched onto ACORN as a villain, accusing it of perpetuating voter fraud. This is ridiculous on its face, but, just to provide some context, here's The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg on just why it's absurd.

My two cents is simple: who do you trust more on the issue of minority voting, Democrats or Republicans? Because of course we all know what a great track record Republicans and conservatives have on expanding the franchise to include minorities.
