Eleven arrest warrants issued. Once again, Democrats will deny it’s yet another manifestation of coordinated corruption. And once again, ACORN will spin it as evidence that they are rooting out fraud:

Eleven people hired to register potential voters in Miami-Dade County before last year’s presidential election were being sought Wednesday for falsifying hundreds of voter registration cards.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office issued arrest warrants for each of the 11 suspects, all of whom worked for the local chapter of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, (ACORN).

By early Wednesday morning, six were in custody, authorities said.

ACORN came under fire during last year’s presidential campaign when Republicans and other conservative groups accused the national organization of committing fraud in its aggressive voter registration efforts in various cities and counties nationwide, including Florida.

But ACORN officials said they had alerted authorities about the alleged illegal activity among some canvassers in Miami-Dade after finding “numerous discrepancies” on voter cards collected from the Homestead area.

The arrests are “further evidence we’ve been policing our own folks and report people attempting to commit voter registration fraud,” said ACORN spokesman Brian Kettenring. “This was really some individuals who were trying to defraud their employer.”

Tip of the criminal iceberg.

Meanwhile, ACORN is now managing apartment buildings:

Dignitaries assembled for a ribbon cutting on Thursday at 1825 Atlantic Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant for the newly completed Atlantic Avenue Apartments.

The Atlantic Avenue Apartments is a seven-story elevator building providing 150 units of housing. At least a dozen of those units will be reserved for adults with developmental disabilities. The creation of affordable housing in neighborhoods across New York City is part of the City’s Five Borough Economic Opportunity Plan to create jobs for New Yorkers and implement a vision for long-term economic growth.

…Atlantic Avenue Apartments was developed on vacant land, with a portion formerly owned by the City of New York and a portion owned by the developers. Dunn Development Corp. and New York ACORN Housing Company, Inc. have joined to co-sponsor the project, and ACORN will also serve as the property manager.

Repeat after me — loudly and often:

ACORN is a criminal enterprise.
