NV Supreme Court Upholds ACORN Employee Conviction, Law Barring Payment Per Voter Registration Card

The decision of the Supreme Court of Nevada in Busefink v. State issued Oct. 4, but I just discovered it today while looking on the website for something else.  The Court rejected a First Amendment challenge to Nevada’s law barring payment per voter registration card for voter registration efforts.

The opinion notes a split among the courts on the question whether laws barring payments per voter registration card are subject to a strict/heightened scrutiny or not, meaning this issue could potentially be raised in a cert. petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I discuss the Busefink case, and ACORN’s broken business model, in Chapter 2 of The Voting Wars.
