Whom shall we ask to investigate?

Hummm,

Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, William Jefferson...

OR, may I suggest, MARK LEVIN, ANN COULTER, SARAH PALIN, TAMMY BRUCE.

What KIND of investigation? The kind where heads will roll, and ACORN will be thoroughly unfunded in CA? Or the kind where you pass the buck but the whole thing is quietly dropped?

ACORN has been supported and subsidized by this corrupt government, so ya don't want the government investigation them.

There are investigations being conducted, outside of government, and there is no doubt, more evidence will be brought forward and eventually made public in the future.

I guess nothing can be done about the fact that Franken won by fraudulent votes...even if they find the connection..since he is already seated?

EX-ACTLY.
 
Shirking away from this is not an option at all, no way, no how. Anyone who does needs an investigation on their a$$ too. So, everybody put the heat on their seats - call, write, fax - whatever to get on it, NOW.

Yep - as predicted by many others among the threads here. That's no investigation, just stalling and cover. I'll say nope, not gonna work.

This is going to have a snowball effect.

You can see the beginnings of it when the voted to defund. Democrats voted NO..and then said they wanted to change their vote.

The tidal wave is hitting. And only a few know what is coming...

Political suicide to support Acorn...except in those gerrymandered districts where you can be a tax bum and still not get the book thrown at you.

It really doesn’t matter.
At this point, ACORN and any brand they try to re-organize under is absolutely radioactive.
Around election time, anyone involved in any way, shape, or form with ACORN or its tentacles will suddenly find the $hit Hawks circling....

They are just shifting to another of their 2-300 groups...so everyone will come out and call for ‘investigation’ of ACORN, knowing nothing will happen....the Radthke’s already have shifted...we are way behind in the game.

I knew it, because people who do not watch Fox will see it one Stewart. And how can they not be outraged?

The MSM did their dardest to keep it under wraps, but in the end they simply look like fools and watch fo rtheir trust numbers to drop from even their present low levels.

""In a press release, ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis says, that as “a result of the indefensible action of a handful of our employees,” the group will immediately stop accepting anyone into ACORN office for service programs, will conduct in-service training of staff, and begin an audit “to review all of the systems and processes called into question by the videos,” to be conducted by the group’s Independent Advisory Council. The Council includes many prominent Democrats, including the man who helped President Obama Transition Team, John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress; former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend; Andrew Stern, International President of the Service Employees International Union; and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros.""

This is the whole problem...Like the cops and city attorney investigating themselves, like congress investigating themselves, or like the AG investigating the government.

The investigations need to be completely independent. It's the only way to find the truth and the extent of the crimes and corruption.

To be fair, that link is about the AUDIT of Brooklyn’s ACORN, ordered by Bertha Lewis of ACORN. An audit that’s really not an audit.

Jerry Brown’s investigation won’t be much better, given that he’s busy running for governor himself.

Re: Jerry Brown/Atty General Calif.

Yes, he is running for Governor. He is of the wrong party but I do think Brown is honest. I know “honest politican” an oxymoron — but I think he’d do a good job on this. We’ll see — may have to eat those words.

Not if it to say blow up a plane or a train station - the government has put many of those in jail.

Its a good question however and why I think the RICO act is a better approach then state laws on any of this.

I thought of that too. He “might” want to make a name for himself by seriously going after this criminal enterprise. It “could” win him the election.

I think it all depends upon whether he’s had previous involvement with ACORN and SEIU. IOW, does he owe part of his soul to the company store?

Nope, disagree. It's too late for them - the rock has been turned over and a lot of people are watching that weren't before. They are trapped as to who they are and what they do. Maybe they can try to run, but they can't hide at this point. Like it was said in post #70, they're radioactive.

Why Governor Schwarzenegger when the state of California has such financial woes?

The State of California has such financial woes precisely because of all the fraud and abuse that goes on in organizations like ACORN. ACORN probably gets State subsidies to help drug dealers and prostitutes and pimps cheat on their taxes and get tax credits for their underage sex slaves.

These people have been robbing the state blind for decades and it is time to put an end to their thievery.

"JMO, but there is not optional for the FBI, IRS, or Homeland Security to investigate. This is mandatory. ACORN, in multiple States, clearly offered to assist people who intended to import across the national border, and traffic across State lines, underage females for the purposes of prostitution, tax evasion, money laundering, and blackmail"

...there....fixed it...

He’s got a big name here in Dem politics with a father who was Governor in 60’s(?) I think. He is independently wealthy and doesn’t Need kickbacks. Plus, Clinton just endorsed his ding-dong Dem opponent—SF Mayor Newsome and I don’t see any Repubs of any note yet. let’s hope.

"...do you need the act to take place to have a conspiracy?"

Technically no. Just planning a crime between two or more persons constitutes a conspiracy.
