Project Vote/ACORN Boss Cops Plea In NV

From an always discreet Associated Press:

Ms. Busefink, in yellow.

Former ACORN official pleads no contest in Nevada

LAS VEGAS — A former supervisor for the defunct political advocacy group ACORN has agreed to a plea deal in a case alleging that canvassers were illegally paid to register Nevada voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Amy Busefink, 28, of Seminole, Fla., pleaded the equivalent of a no-contest in state court to two misdemeanor counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters. Her Alford plea acknowledged the state had evidence for a conviction at trial.

The plea agreement could get Busefink a year of probation, a $1,000 fine and 100 hours of community service.

Her lawyer, Kevin Stolworthy, says Busefink has never been in trouble before and entered the plea to "have some finality."

Notice how little we heard about this trial during the run up to last week’s election. Indeed, the news of this plea deal ran in the Nevada newspapers early yesterday.

And even now, at least as far as we can tell, this AP story has only been picked up by one national mainstream outlet — the Washington Post.

The AP article leaves out a few pertinent. Such as the fact that Ms. Busefink was originally charged with a felony.

It also fails to note that she was actually working for Project Vote, which is the exact same ACORN front group that Mr. Obama worked for in his glorious days as a ‘community organizer’ in Chicago.

The AP also does not mention that Ms. Busefink still seems to be gainfully employed by ACORN, according to their website.

    AP equals Acorn Press. Of course, these same people would have had absolutely no influence on Sharron Angle’s loss. Oh, no, Leftists are pure now that Ms. Busefink has been tapped on the wrist.

    AP & NV left out dates in article on ACORN’s voter violator’s admittance. No court date or date of plea.
    Did she plea prior to Nov 2 elections, and the media is hiding this?

    Tip of the iceberg to a much bigger, deeper, insidious, endemic national problem.

    “I’m a victim”. —- “We are victims. And must therefore convince everyone else that they are victims too and beat down and destroy that which stands for democracy and actual fairness that is the result of being held responsible for oneself, the bastions of self-reliance and making the government responsible for everything that happens in our lives that’s bad.”

    On the other hand, if you set forth a movement that would ultimately make it so the government gives you everything, you set the foundation for making the government the source of all your problems. But there’s no explaining that to people like Ms Busefink.

    What I could find was the Las Vegas field director of ACORN made a deal (Aug 2009) to testify against ACORN and Ms Busefink – ACORNs trial is scheduled for Nov 29 on 13 counts. She will be sentenced Jan 10.

    But no, I could not find anything about this happening before the election. To me the gaming union was of more help to Reid than ACORN this time around.

    Nevada is in bad shape. Bad schools, no jobs. I still think it’s the old mafia style unions running things.
