Conyers unhappy FBI probe of ACORN was leaked
In the latest chapter of the unfolding ACORN saga, House Judiciary Committee John Conyers (D-Mich.) is unhappy that someone leaked word of a preliminary FBI investigaton into the contoversial group's voter registration activities.
The Associated Press reported today that the FBI is looking into whether ACORN has attempted to "foster voter registration fraud around the nation before the presidential election." The AP cited unnamed "senior law enforcement officials" as sources for the story.
Sen. John McCain and GOP leaders have been accusing ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) of knowingly submitting false voter registration forms in Nevada, Missouri and half-dozen others states. ACORN says it has signed up 1.3 million new voters this cycle, many of them poor, young or minorities. Sen.Barack Obama has longstanding ties to ACORN, and Republicans believe that the overwhelming number of new voters signed up by the group with support the Democratic presidential hopeful.
Conyers came to the defense of ACORN, which he called"a longstanding and well regarded organization that fights for the poor and working class," and he criticized the Justice Department for leaking this story so close to an election.

Yeah..the fleas are usually not happy when the dog gets dipped.
Conyers should have been in a 8x8’ cell for the last decade, the racist criminal.
Dear John ...tough
Conyers has really got to be sweating it...his wife Monica is under investigation for a kick-back scheme in Detroit. It appears the FBI has her on some wiretaps. John could be feeling a little stress right now
I feel dirty just knowing that my congressional district rubs up against his.
Choke on it Conyers you evil POS.
But as the libs say, “THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE CHARGES WARRANTS INVESTIGATION.”
Detroit is one hundred million in debt
Conyers also wants to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, the convicted murderer of a Philadelphia police officer.
OMG, when did that happen? I haven’t checked the FREEP since Kwame was booted.
You gotta know that the interrogatories leading up the the full blown investigation will yield all kinds of “process crimes” (loss of memory, contradictory statements, LIES) that will make Scooter Libby’s infraction look like jaywalking.
Was the RAT this upset when the NY Times displayed war secrets on the front page?
It’s a relief that a good number of Democrats are feeling the heat for a change.
Not a surprise, coming from Conyers. Considering his State is making the last few laps as it swirls around the bowl toward bankruptcy, how is it that he keeps getting reelected?? (Rhetorical question there folks...I know the answer to that one...)
