New documents have been obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a watchdog organization that keeps an eye on government corruption, that shines more light on the dismembered ACORN organization. The documents show of election fraud as an employee told the FBI that ACORN was "working for the Democratic Party." Here is the documents from Judicial Watch:

Washington, DC -- June 9, 2010 Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) related to the 2007 investigation and arrest of eight St. Louis, Missouri, workers from the “community organization” Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) for violation of election laws and voter fraud. The documents include handwritten notes from FBI investigators interviewing canvassers working with Project Vote, an ACORN affiliate. Among the highlights from the FBI handwritten notes: In addition to the hand-written notes, the documents also include copies of the arrest warrants, criminal case cover sheets and court documents. In April 2008, all eight ACORN employees involved in the scandal pled guilty to voter registration fraud. In March 2010, Judicial Watch obtained a separate batch of FBI documents detailing federal investigations into alleged ACORN corruption and voter registration fraud in Connecticut. The FBI and Department of Justice initiated investigations. However, the Obama Justice Department, while noting that ACORN had engaged in “questionable hiring and training practices,” closed down the investigation in March 2009, claiming ACORN broke no laws.
“These documents show the need for a national criminal investigation by the Obama Justice Department into ACORN. Is Attorney General Holder doing nothing because of Obama’s close connections to ACORN and Project Vote? The information in these new documents has national implications that cry out for further investigation,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Just a couple weeks ago, the former CEO of ACORN was arrested at an immigration protest . Kudos for staying visible, Bertha Lewis. Now that ACORN has officially closed shop, the only concern would be to make certain they don't spring back up under another name and repeat the process all over again. Oh wait, they tried that once already. Don't put it by them to try at least a dozen more times.
