The rats may be deserting this ship, but they are going someplace.

Grassley uncovered some big info about them shifting funds from charitable to political organizations. Could be just the tip of the iceberg.

Take names and follow them. Any organization that gives one of these folks a place to hide also needs to be exposed. Follow them like the vermin they are and pound them with fury wherever they try to hide. That is how you put an end to corruption that tries to pretend it is like smoke and just "rematerialze" under a new name with the same folks elsewhere. Follow them like bloodhounds and root them out of every hole they try to hide in.

Even leftist fellow-traveler -- and, until now, stalwart ACORN defender -- Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) is squirming.

Wasn't the 'hotdog' more than just a defender? Wasn't it at his knees ACORN got fertilized, I mean our tax dollars. He ought to be at the front of the line when anything ACORN is dug up and out from the roots. OF course Barnie the hotdog has lots of company right in the bowels of elected officials.

He also claims he hadn't closely read a letter with his signature on it that

The Democrat Official Stock Answer.

Van Jones didn't read the 911 Truther petition that he signed, either.

They create a new organization which assimilates the aspects and assets of the former.

Problem solved — for the foreseeable.

That’s their tactic. Plead ignorance when caught. Hey, it worked for pelosi and her CIA lie. A white, male Republican speaker would have been asked to resign over that.

I am surprised they are deserting. I would have expected them to circle the wagons.

Grassley’s on the Finance Committee. He’d be the guy who knows if anyone does.

Rumors of ACORN's death are greatly exaggerated. Someone on another thread referred to ACORN as a hydra with many heads. They're just switching heads.

New title, same game. Voter fraud. Illegal immigration. Underage prostitution. Money laundering. Same ol' same ol'.

What Acorn really is/was will re-form and be re-funded by this government. They rolled over way to easily. The noise and protesting from the left is all for show. It's business as usual come Monday.

Bet on it

Liberals knew ACORN was a criminal organization. They didn’t care as long as the “marks” - AKA citizens didn’t know...

Conservatives are starting to fight back - they put up a new ACORN and a new O'Keefe will step up to the plate.

“The rats may be deserting this ship, but they are going someplace.”

Absolutely! The hands that feed the rats will still do so, and only the feeders will know where to find them in the dark.

IMHO

Please let someone have a lot of footage showing the affection ACORN has for some of Congress and vice versa. And let it be played again and again during this and future campaign cycles.

Either that, or they will just infest another luxury liner.

I agree. It's just like a borg collective ship. It takes a hit, but keeps on going while it rebuilds the damaged area. Drones are expendable and easily replaced.

It is the tip of the iceberg. Difference now and a few years ago is that the Republicans on the internet are much more active with blogs and helping uncover a lot of the corruption.

Going to be very tough to ever get an organization like ACORN up and running again in today’s environment.

I agre with you — they set up another ACORN and it will get its head chopped as well. It is a new day with the investigation on the side of conservatives.

Sen. Charles Grassley on Thursday released documents showing that ACORN shifted millions in charitable and government funds meant for the poor to its political and for-profit arms.

Apparently not all documents made it to the shredder.

It has already happened. ACORN has changed its name to COI - Community Organizers International.

They’re not deserting. They’re just in a holding pattern circling it. The moment the storm passes, they’ll crawl back onboard and try to keep it afloat.

They stick around long enough to see what they can get away with, and once there is no longer a benefit to them they abandon ship and search for ways to point the finger of blame at Republicans.

Caution: You are mixing metaphors. There has never been a documented case where people deserting sinking ships were circled by wagons...

The dums are caught between a rock and a hard place. I would not be surprised if ACORN has a little black book(s) with names of people in the DNC and will disclose them if dems abandon them. Better buy alot of popcorn ‘cause it looks like this fall and winter may be fun to watch.

Lastly, if ACORN is defunded and under the microscope from local, state, and fed. agencies, this may lessen their impact or enthusiasm for the 2010 elections. It may be a bigger bloodbath for dems in 2010 since it will be a more fair election.
