When a soccer player takes a deliberate dive we hope a Ref sees it and flashes a red flag... when a public organization is clearly corrupt we hope the powers that be take notice. Thus, it is so gratifying to Americans to finally hear of ACORN's public demise; a demise heralded by their own words and deeds as captured on film. Nothing better for extolling liberal hypocrisy than a video to capture their actions. Thank God. As a criminal enterprise, ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) or better named, the Association for Democrats Stealing Campaign Money), likely got its former lawyer, Hussein Obama, elected through their illegal ballot stuffing. As an organization it operated on federal handouts, then mismanaged and misdirected those handouts to assure Democrat wins in campaigns, all the while dispensing advise on, as is now clear, prostitution rackets and God knows what else! Records show that Hussein Obama paid ACORN over $800,000 to campaign for him; so Democrats gamed both ends of the organization for partisan advantage. We'll know much more as the light of day is shined on ACORN... One of the leftist clowns over in BS P&CE can't quite figure out what all the ruckus is about! Originally Posted by Dr. Wankler "Like so many conservative attacks, the crusade against ACORN has been highly exaggerated and even falsified to create a demonic image that bears little resemblance to the real organization. Working in the nation's poorest places, and hiring the people who live there, ACORN is not immune to the pathologies that can afflict institutions in those communities. As a large nonprofit handling many millions of dollars, it has suffered from mismanagement at the top as well -- although there is nothing unique in that, either." Ah the old disavow/falsify dodge now so common with nutcase Hussein Obama supporters; throw ACORN under the bus since now they're apparently unimportant (even though through their illegality they likely got Obama and other Democrats elected via voter fraud), criticize the attack as partisan (where have we heard that before?), and allege some minority gravitas to the organization's crusade (echo is still being heard on that day in and day out)! Wasn't that done with Rev. Wright as well? Well, the above ACORN advocate nut surely hit all the propaganda points...surely a lefty university prof complete with Che t-shirt and pony-tail ACORN devotee! Trouble is the clown missed the fact apparent, what ACORN did, and was captured on video, is illegal, and attests to the criminality of the organization from top to bottom, and is not a partisan attack but a clear record of public corruption by a organization that our current president provided legal services for and heavily paid in his campaign! Moreover, what ACORN was doing it was likely doing in all of its offices, as the many videos from ACORN offices in Maryland, New York, California, and the District clearly show. The Census Bureau has now severed ties to ACORN; the House and Senate are passing legislation to deny ACORN money it has heretofore given; many states, the latest being Texas and Louisiana, have opened investigations into ACORN; and the FBI has prior and ongoing investigations into voter fraud against ACORN, in addition to those previously charged at ACORN for campaign violations and voter fraud. All good! Even hardened Democrats are taking exception to ACORN's clear criminality... More investigation of ACORN will highlight the depths of criminality of the organization and of Democrats who used ACORN (Hussein Obama on down) for campaign advantage. It will also clearly highlight what is meant by "Community Organization Reform" in the Chicago sense! Expect the leftist liberal brigade to be completely clueless here, allege some "conservative attack," and minimize ACORN's influence... the same soft backpeddle from libs as the Rev. Wright scandal, the Van Jones Czar scandal, and every other scandal Democrats and Hussein Obama have slimed away from... Yeah you can take a dive on the pitch for advantage but that doesn't make it right, in soccer or in life. ACORN's demise highlights why we need scrutiny on organizations that operate with public funds for alleged 'community organization' (better known now as campaigning for the Democrat Party).
