Stop the vendetta against ACORN
.baltimoresun.com/ ^ | October 31, 2009 | Some libtard

Posted on 10/31/2009 10:59:18 PM PDT by Jet Jaguar

Some of my best friends have worked for ACORN. They are honest, dedicated and moral individuals who appreciated the mission of this group, which has done so much good for some of our poorest citizens. So I take it personally when Congress reduces ACORN to an object lesson about the purported immorality of some community organizers.

ACORN isn't perfect. Both its loose organizational supervision and occasional zealotry of its organizers have led to abuses. But Congress has been extremely hypocritical and biased in cutting off federal funds.

When two conservative activists posed as a pimp and a prostitute and with a hidden camera went to a number of ACORN's tax preparation offices seeking tax counseling, they managed to find a couple of staffers who gave foolish and unprofessional advice. ACORN has since fired those employees.

But that wasn't enough for Congress. Absent any attempt to assess how widespread such practices are or whether ACORN is striving to monitor its organizers more closely, Congress acted with unprecedented speed and zeroed out ACORN's funding.

ACORN isn't perfect.

Like saying water isn't exactly dry. What an understatement.

Both its loose organizational supervision and occasional zealotry of its organizers have led to abuses.

I guess the "loose" organization keeps them from all being swept up in the RICO investigation, as well as "friends" in high places.

But Congress has been extremely hypocritical and biased in cutting off federal funds.

yadda,yadda,yadda. Congress was extremely hypocritical and biased in ever giving the taxpayers money to such hypocritical and biased people in the first place.

WHERE IS THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY??

BS. If ACORN didn’t have a bud in the WH, they’d be prosecuted under RICO.

You're damn right they did, as they have no Constitutional authority to steal my money and give it to that subversive, vote fraud/vote stealing organization in the first place!
CONgre$$ is in enough trouble with "we the people" right now. They do not need any further grieve coming from the peons.

And KEEP it zeroed out! The US Government has no business or right to fund partisan political advocacy groups such as ACORN in the first place. The fact that ACORN has been involved in dozens of vote fraud schemes and appears to be rotten to the core regarding general lawlessness, prostitution and drugs makes ACORN pure poison all around.

The rest of us can read the many cases of voter registration fraud that has been proven. The rest of us can see the tapes and see their willingness to assist in the importation of underage children for use as prostitutes. The rest of us fully know and understand that a large part of this organization is corrupt and is nothing more than a left wing political organized criminal activity. It is a cancer that needs to be excised from our society. Some of the good tissue must also be removed to make sure we get all of the this malignant tumor. ACORN did this to itself. The innocents involved need to put the blame there and only there.

I will tell you the one key feature about ACORN...one guy or one special group...is always in charge of each city or regional ACORN office. If you were to walk in...with forty additional volunteers...all right-wing leaning...you would be pushed out the front door.

The guys in charge...don’t want competition within the inner circle of each ACORN office.

Note the current trouble in New Orleans...a second ACORN group is about to start up with the recently fired chief of that old ACORN office running the new one. There are strong suggestions of conflict between these two groups.

If you wanted to destroy ACORN...you destroy from within. You join....you melt into this apparatus...and then you stand up and start with a couple of management changes. You challenge the structure and vision. You institute reforms over accountability. You invite the media to view the “change” of the regional ACORN office. In five years, you could destroy the entire effective nature of ACORN in your local town and make multiple competitor organizations which draw away from the effective nature of the group.

Just a suggestion.

As a hiring manager, previous employment by ACORN would be a warning flag.

I am sure somewhere in that corrupt bunch of violent communist thugs you can find a few naifs and dimwits who thought it really was a “community organizing” organization, just as among Democrat party voters, there are a handful of non-communists.

I stopped at these two words “isn’t perfect”.

Those two words are an admission of massive corruption which describe anything affiliated with the democrats.
