Skip to comments.Rep. Jerrold Nadler Chooses ACORN over America
Posted on 10/26/2009 5:29:39 AM PDT by Shellybenoit
This past March, Heather Heidelbaugh, a Pennsylvania Attorney, testified before Congressman Jerrold Nadler's Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties subcommittee about the fraud perpetuated by ACORN. Her testimony alleged violations of the election code, fraud and misrepresentation, and violations of equal protection and due process. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) was shocked at the testimony and called for a probe of the Democrat's favorite tax fraud group but Nadler's response was to stonewall.
When the Congress voted to cut off funds to ACORN not only did Congressman Nadler vote against the resolution, but make speeches against cutting off the funds saying the congressional action a bill of attainder, or an unfair, punitive act by Congress.
"Last week, to the great shame of this House," Nadler said from the floor on September 25, "we passed a Bill of Attainder." Whatever infractions Acorn may be guilty of, Nadler said, "it ought to be vetted or sanctioned by the appropriate administrative agency or by the judiciary. But Congress must not be in the business of punishing individual organizations or people without trial."
Of Course Nadler forgot to mention the fact that he is being a bit disingenuous, as he has been the guy in congress blocking a full investigation of ACORM Nadler may be ACORN's biggest friend in congress (no pun intended).

Musta had some fried chicken for him.
These low-life’s don’t have to pay their taxes, read the laws they vote on, come to work except when they feel like it, live with the coming health care laws they are imposing on us peons.........WHAT a JOB!!!
Great example of exactly how insanely STUPID the American voter is....Voting people like this in office year after year...SICKENING!!!!!!!!!!!!
The GOP had better figure the ACORN issue out. The future of all political opposition depends on it.
Instead of listening to what these shysters SAY during their “love-ins” called campaigns, we need to LOOK at what they actually do or have done...
They most always do opposite of what they said they’d do...yet they are still voted in...
KICK THEIR COLLECTIVES ARSES OUT!!!!!!!!!!
If he truly believes this, he's an idiot. If he doesn't, he's a liar.
