The charges against Jacoby and YPM, if true, are far more serious than any of the allegations against ACORN. The ACORN canvassers were registering fictional characters who couldn't possibly show up to vote–especially not with the new federal photo ID requirements. ACORN itself was the victim of their deception. Whereas, YPM canvassers allegedly lied to real-life voters in order to register them against their will and this deception might have a real outcome on the election if it infered with GOTV efforts by the Obama camp or future Democratic campaigns.
