Great News, ACORN Folds!

The corrupt community organizing group ACORN is closing down. Some of the stronger local affiliates will remain but the national chapter is closing.

The ACORN Association Board met on Sunday March 21 and approved a set of steps to responsibly manage the process of bringing its operations to a close over the coming months. These include:

* Closing ACORN’s remaining state affiliates and field offices by April 1st; and
* Developing a plan to resolve all outstanding debts, obligations and other issues.

ACORN’s members have a great deal to be proud of–from promoting to homeownership to helping rebuild New Orleans, from raising wages to winning safer streets, from training community leaders to promoting voter participation—ACORN members have worked hard to create stronger to communities, a more inclusive democracy, and a more just nation.

Members of this group were video recorded advising people to commit crimes (despite any claims to the contrary). The videos do not lie. There is no way to edit in people giving advice on how to break the law.

Now all we have to do is keep this corrupt organization from reorganizing under some other name.

Then again, they say this will happen on April Fool’s Day. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Never surrender, never submit.

    Woops, how will Democrats win elections now? Obama’s will be doomed in 2012 without the millions of votes ACORN stole for him somehow in 2008.

    It may be true that some in ACORN did some wrong doing but you get that in any organization.

    Lets look at the well respected Catholic Church with all its sex scandels. Maybe they should be forced to close.

    Lets look at all the law enforcement officiers who routinely breaks laws, maybe they to should be disbanded.

    Heaven forbid that our own government officials (on either side) never done anything wrong, maybe we should disband all political party period.

    As said the video may not lie but the full truth was not told either. For instance the two that pretended to be a pimp and whore was also breaking the law. And they may still face criminal charges.

    Federal Courts ruled that the stopping of Federal Funds to ACORN was unconstitutional, thus another breaking of laws by the ones that claimed ACORN being corrupted.

    Two wrong deeds, by both sides, do not make a right. Nor does the end justify the means especially if the means is also illegal in itself.

    Lets not forget what other things ACORN was doing. First they fought for higher minimum wages, safer streets, housing, ect.

    Its a shame that a corrupted opponent orginization can destroy all the good another orinization has done.

    I guess the lesson here is don’t support underage prostitution. Seems like an obvious lesson and yet…

    Big Loss, ACORN is rotten from bottom to top- and their association with their “sister” org., the union SEIU, is but another example of their corruption, but never fear- anyone who truly believes that ACORN is going away, instead of morphing into other, different entities, please give me ALL of your money- I will triple it in a day, I PROMISE*

    *Unless reality sets in.

    I am very pleased that Acorn has major problems, and hope that corrupt organization is gone forever, but….that 15,000 new Government employees that the BO Administration is hiring as IRS enforcers, could be them Acorn employees. Strange they fold as them thousands of jobs , government ones will be opened.
