ACORN's many enablers over the years are racing for the exits

The sewers are like catacombs. They'll just find another dark, wet, smelly place to hide.

Acorn has gone global; how long will it take to uncover how they’ve transfered funds abroad under various countries’ laws? They are weaving quite an international web.

What is the name and shape of Acorn’s replacement organization?

Community Organizers International. It's already been renamed.

I had heard that the House bill to cut off funding to ACORN has to be reconciled in some way with the Senate bill before it actually becomes law.

I had also heard that it is so draconian to other groups and companies that receive federal funding that it could jeopardize military contracts with Boeing and other military suppliers.

Pretty sneaky, huh?

Can we please have this be the “at the end of the day” story of the Obama administration’s relationship with the media?

Maybe it's just me but this is a very difficult time to get through, even if I sometimes manage a glimmer of hope. Just a suggestion but couldn't we phrase things like this "We have to watch their every move or The ship will be renamed and have another crew..

I can't see how fueling our hopelessness and impotence in these dangerous times can be helpful. That's what the other side is trying to do by diminishing the townhalls and Washington march. The men who founded this country had an attitude of making a difference, I'd like to personally shoot for that as well.

Just picked this comment but it seems like these types of comments are the majority these days, not just here, on all conservative boards. Nothing personal. IMHO

Thanks for that, you know that tyhey are scambling to set up a firewalled organization so they can get their hands on that 8.6 billion before the 2012 election.

TheAcorn staff are simply abandoniong Acorn like rats from a sinking ship and heading for COI-TUS ( Community Organizers International-The United States)

They will conduct the same destructive activity but with a security component to keep investigatve reporters out.

Now the real social war starts.

KEEP THE BATTLE CRY UPBEAT, REPORT THE FACTS, HAVE A GAME PLAN AND FOLLOW THROUGH. THIS IS AN UP AND DOWN FIGHT FOR OUR LIVES AND FREEDOM, UNDERSTAND IT AS SUCH, AND DO NOT DWELL ON THE NEGATIVE. LET’S HEAR IT FOR POSITIVE INPUT ON HOW THIS DAMN WAR WE’RE FIGHTING WITH THE COMMUNIST WHITE HOUSE CAN BE WON! HOOAH!

Right. Anything they can do to minimize us. Witness the incredible disrespect of the Tea Parties and the 9/12 March. Yet when even one hint of conflict of interest is in the air with Delay or Gingrich - bring out the 4 alarm fire engines...

But we KNOW who we are and what we stand for. Thanks all the same traitor media.

Nice find, tina........

Clinton pictured above with ACORN founder Wade Rathke
(Wade's brother Dale stole $1 million from ACORN--no charges were filed).

The tax-exempt Clinton Foundation had just donated $250,000 to ACORN, providing $275,000 in grants for ACORN's "Katrina Benefits Access project" and ACORN's "Operation Hope Project; Restore Hope."

The tax-exempt Clinton Foundation also helped secure private sector commitments for ACORN.

===============================================

REFERENCE The IRS has pinpointed tax-exempt "foundations and charities" as the locus classicus for tax evasion and money laundering. The BIGGEST tax-exempt fraud --- a tax-exempt foundation writing checks to a tax-exempt charity (the way crooks look "altruistic" as they siphon off tax-free money for personal uses).

Course, there's the guy who had sex with a dumbbell (no, not a bimbo--a real dumbbell).

His member swelled to 5 times normal---so it had to be sawed off (the dumbbell, that is).
