Complete title: ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers and Shredding Documents, After Exposed as Players Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York -- operating as New York Communities for Change -- have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

“‘That’s the story that we’re sticking to,’” Westin said, according to the source.

The source said staffers at the meeting contested Westin’s denial:

“It was pretty funny. Jonathan told staff they don’t pay for protesters, but the people in the meeting who work there objected and said, ‘Wait, you pay us to go to the protests every day?’ Then Jonathan said ‘No, but that’s your job,’ and staffers were like, ‘Yeah, our job is to protest,’ and Westin said, ‘No your job is to fight for economic and social justice. We just send you to protest.’

“Staff said, ‘Yes, you pay us to carry signs.’ Then Jonathan says, ‘That’s your job.’ It went on like that back and forth for a while.”

Paid with Government (tax-payers’) subsidies or BO’s stash from crony capitalists?

I’d say they’ve probably gotten from both. This shows ACORN never went away, just changed their name.

I have seen thousands of cockroaches scatter in the barn when a light is turned on. A perfect metaphor for Acorn.

I seldom finish the month with more than a dollar or two left. If I can contribute ten dollars a month then anyone can. This forum is one of a few almost sane harbors in an insane world. Please help pay for our megaphone, put your money where your mouth is.

The critical point would be for Fox or Big Journalism to get one of these workers on camera, state ACORN is directly funding faux protestors at OWS, and also decry how little they are paid.

So it’s like we all suspected, but couldn’t actually prove until they admitted it: the OWS “movement” was not a spontaneous movement, but choreographed commie agitprop that leads straight to Obama and ACORN.

That’s exactly how this was done, IMHO.

Did they shred the instructions for “twinkle up”, “twinkle down”, “block”, “mic check”, “point of process”, or how to tinkle in the curb, or do caca on squadcars? Those should be shredded, burned, and fumigated.

““People literally have to cover up the cameras on the back of their cellphones in the office.”

“Now there’s no texting in the office, no phone calls in the office. They tell us to take our phone calls out into the waiting room where there’s an intercom, and then they turn on the intercom to hear our conversations. They’re installing new cameras and speakers around the building so they can hear everything.”

Well, if they weren’t up to no good, then they’d have no reason to be so paranoid and secretive. It’s not as if ACORN is protecting the secret formula for Coke or the Colonel’s 7 secret herbs and spices.

ACORN and Obama are joined at the hip. This indicates that OWS has support from the Dem leadership.

ACORN fragmented into multiple personalties all across the country.

I don’t know how many names, but just the same rhetoric.

That’s what I’ve read also and it seems to be a lot of different names.
