I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
That day may be sooner than you think for Missouri residents, though not if ACORN has its way. ACORN, an organization made famous when they were busted in 2004 for committing and encouraging voter fraud by falsifying and submitting fictional registrations in Missouri and several other states, has accused MoCRI of similar behavior.
"ACORN workers have been convicted of election fraud. By accusing MoCRI of like behavior they are hoping to divert attention away from their own record. If they repeat the lie accusing MoCRI behaving like ACORN long enough and loud enough, they hope the truth will be obscured."
- Tim Asher, Executive Director of the Missouri Civil Rights Initiative
If ACORN and other supporters of race and sex based preference hope to kill the initiative, they'll have their work cut out for them. Similar initiatives have been approved in every state where they have been placed on the ballot.
