Madison, Wis. (AP) - Two former ACORN workers are accused of repeatedly trying to register the same voters during a Milwaukee drive to meet quotas set by the organization.
 
Maria Miles and Kevin Clancy were charged Monday with falsely procuring voter registration as a party to the crime during the 2008 campaign.
 
Phone numbers were not listed for Miles and Clancy. A spokesman for the Milwaukee County prosecutor's office said they did not yet have attorneys.
 
The criminal complaint says the 36-year-old Miles and 26-year-old Clancy acknowledged signing or trying to sign up the same people multiple times.
 
ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has been dogged nationally by allegations of voter-registration fraud.
