    TALLAHASSEE — Breaking with the talking points of his fellow Republicans in Washington, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said he doesn't think voter fraud and the vote-registration group Acorn are a major problem in the Sunshine State.

    ''I think that there's probably less [fraud] than is being discussed. As we're coming into the closing days of any campaign, there are some who enjoy chaos,'' Crist told reporters.

    Crist made his comments as the Republican National Committee hosted a conference call with reporters on Wednesday to tie Democrat Barack Obama to suspicious voter-registration cards submitted by Acorn across the nation and in four Florida counties.

    In one case in Broward County, an unknown person attempted to re-register a longtime voter named Susan S. Glenckman. Broward officials caught the error in August when it was brought to their attention by Acorn
