The bottom line here is ACORN was just a corrupt large tumor funded by the taxpayer. Now it has begun to metastasize. Had their not been a fraud ridden, Obama directed, Department of ‘Injustice’, led by the crooked Eric Holder, we might have had the opportunity to cut it out before this happened.
Any reasonable person will agree that a non-racist administration’s time is better spent investigating the CIA, insuring that terrorists have the Constitutional rights of a U.S. citizen during a civilian trial, instead of a military tribunal. Hey Obama! How’s that GITMO close down working for you?
The time is equally better spent trying to determine what we know, that Nancy Pelosi is a pathological liar and attended the briefings on enhanced interrogation techniques.
But of course there isn’t time to look into the disappearance of trillions of dollars of TARP monies, that Big Ben refuses to tell us about. Nope, Holder doesn’t want the FBI doing it’s job and thereby uncovering a money laundering and bundling schemes into the coffers of the DNC, a SWAG on my behalf, (editorial license) but logic dictates with this administration filled with recalcitrant reprobates, crooks and thieves, anything is possible. Random thoughts while observing the passing parade, J.C.
Congressman Steve King, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, made the following statement in response to news reports that ACORN is dissolving its national structure.
“This is not surprising news. ACORN must change its name in order to try and run ahead of the accountability that is catching up with this corrupt organization.
“Even though the one party controlled federal government is using its resources to protect ACORN, entrepreneurial new media investigators and state attorneys general are tightening the noose. Dissolving its national brand does not change ACORN’s faces nor ACORN’s crimes. This organization specializes in subterfuge, but ACORN cannot outrun the wheels of justice that are catching up with this corrupt criminal enterprise.”
Also from Big Government
ACORN is attempting to perpetrate yet another spectacular fraud on the American people in order to keep tax dollars and foundation grants flowing into its coffers.
With the fallout from the hidden camera videos last fall, congressional funding of ACORN’s election fraud and racketeering business is no longer guaranteed, so ACORN is trying to pass off various state chapters as ”new” groups
As part of the radical group’s fraudulent rebranding scheme, ACORN has renamed its New York chapter New York Communities for Change. Unlike on the West coast where ACORN is at least pretending its renamed California chapter (Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment or ACCE) is not part of the ACORN network, New York Communities for Change shares the same Nevins Street address as ACORN’s Brooklyn office.
A March 4 fundraiser for New York Communities for Change is being hosted by Debra Cooper.
Meanwhile, the Massachusetts branch of ACORN has been renamed New England United for Justice.
More state-level name changes are expected soon while the basic structure of ACORN, which is controlled from the top using interlocking directorates, remains essentially intact.
The ACORN network’s interlocking directorates are deliberately organized to help ACORN escape legal and public scrutiny. “ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan political agenda and to manipulate the American electorate,” according to a report from the Republican investigators of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Under indictment in Nevada for election law violations, ACORN feels it can do all this in the light of day because the Obama administration and the Democratic-controlled Congress have no interest in a real investigation of its criminal activities.
These improprieties include but are in no way limited to:
*a nearly $1 million embezzlement by the founder’s brother that was covered up for eight years while the brother (Dale Rathke) remained on the ACORN payroll
*misuse of pension funds
*commingling of public funds
*illegal loan from ERISA-covered pension fund
*failure to pay excise tax on illegal loan
*use of public funds on partisan activities
ACORN doesn’t care about the growing mountain of credible allegations against it because ACORN thinks it is politically untouchable.
