Kansas City election director Ray James said the U.S. attorney and Jackson County prosecutor's office have been asked to investigate registrations collected by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as ACORN. James said more than 15,000 registrations have problems such as duplicates, questionable or unreadable information, or names, addresses and Social Security numbers that don't match existing records. Kevin Whelan, communications director for ACORN, said the group was surprised to see that large of a number in media reports. He said ACORN representatives had been working with the Kansas City Election Board to sort through about 3,000 cards that had problems.
