Some asshat from the Buckeye Institute filed a lawsuit against ACORN a few weeks ago.

Today Ed Brayton posts about an interview he did with Maurice Thompson of the Buckeye Institute and basically destroys their case. It turns out the “proof” the Buckeye Institute claims to have is actually just a bunch of lies.

The plaintiff’s attorney in a case that alleges that they have proof that ACORN has committed massive institutional voter registration fraud for the purpose of helping people vote illegally, when asked if he could document any case of someone actually voting illegally because of ACORN, dishonestly described a situation in another state that, it turns out, was based on flimsy evidence and is false. Do you need any more proof that his lawsuit is purely a PR move rather than a serious claim for relief?
