ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers and Shredding Documents, After Exposed as Players
Fox News ^ | 11/3/11 | Jana Winter

Posted on 11/03/2011 11:18:19 AM PDT by Nachum

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.

“They’re doing serious damage control right now,” said an NYCC source.

NYCC Executive Director Jon Kest has been calling a series of emergency meetings to discuss last week’s report—and taking extreme measures to identify the sources in their office and to prevent further damage, a source within NYCC told FoxNews.com.

Acorn is one of bambi’s favorites...they are professional shredders and no doubt will time it each time perfectly to avoid being found out. It’s what they do. They follow their leader.

The RICO laws only work if there are people there to prosecute them.

Doesn’t acorn equal obama?

Is obama behind the whole thing? Is that why they protest at wall street when they should be out front of the whitehouse?

Equal? Not sure about that. The term ‘useful idiots’ comes to mind though.

"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,’

Does this organization receive government money?
I thought ACORN was defunded. If this group is new who is funding them? If they don’t get government money they can support OWS all they want.

Oh this was a great idea...they should do that with the creeps at the Protests in Oakland etc. From your link....

...”In 2005, Operation Simply Shred started showing up, to counter act the protestors. Their solution was simple and very humorous. They just walk around the Air Show, following the protestors. Only the OSS guys are armed with battery operated paper shredders and recycling bags. They offer to shred these flyers and put them in the recycling bags. They also follow up behind the Memorial Day parade to offer the same service.”

I used to say the Democrat Party was a criminal enterprise.

I could say the Obama Administration is a criminal enterprise.

The truth is the entire, loosely affiliated, Obama organization is a criminal enterprise. From the administration (i.e., Holder), to the reelection campaign (Axelrod), to the doppelgangers like Van Jones, Acorn, SEIU, etc.

Just another 6 years or so and many will be looking at JQ Public over iron sights. They are fascists, plain and simple.

Follow the....

http://www.campaignmoney.com/finance.asp?type=in&cycle=08&criteria=pritzker&fname=penny

 

Billionaire business mogul Penny Pritzker is a member of one of America’s richest families and was the Finance Chair for the presidential campaign of Barack Obama.  It was Pritzker that led the prolific, and illegal, fundraising that helped power Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.  She was the chair of Chicago-based Superior Bank’s board for five years. 

Pritzker was into subprime lending before it became all the rage starting in around 2000.  Prtizker's chairmanship was to concentrate on sub prime lending, principally on home mortgages, but for a while in subprime auto lending, too, after the Pritzkers' bank acquired its wholesale mortgage organization division, Alliance Funding, in December 1992.

Back then they called it "predatory lending."

Superior Bank went belly up in 2001 with over $1 billion in insured and uninsured deposits; 1,406 depositors lost much of their life savings.  This collapse came amid harsh criticism of how Superior’s owners promoted sub-prime home mortgages.

On Nov. 1 [2002] the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. pointed the finger at Ernst & Young, Superior’s auditor, in a fraud suit filed in federal court here.  But that action came two months after a group of Superior depositors accused the bank’s owners and directors, including two members of the Pritzker family, of racketeering....

[snip]

...Pritzker is chairman of Classic Residence by Hyatt, luxury senior living communities in 11 states; chairman of The Parking Spot, which owns and operates off-airport parking facilities in nine cities; chairman of the credit data company TransUnion and chairman of Pritzker Realty.  She also sits on the board of Global Hyatt and plays a role in numerous non-profit groups, including serving as chairman of the Olympic village portion of Chicago’s bid to win the 2016 Summer Games.

Like I say, 21/1/13, the day after the new President is sworn in, there will be people to order ACORN’s prosecution under RICO.
