House Oversight Chairman Calls for Probe into ACORN Role in Occupy Wall Street
Fox News ^ | November 7, 2011 | Jana Winter

Posted on 11/07/2011 2:17:24 PM PST by jazusamo

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is calling for an investigation into allegations that ACORN-related group New York Communities for Change "engaged in fraud through its participation in the Occupy Wall Street protests."

In a letter dated Monday, Issa, R-Calif., called for U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch of the Eastern District of New York to launch a probe into allegations first reported by that NYCC may have "solicited donations from union members under false pretenses and misappropriated those funds to support the protesters."

In an Oct. 26. report, quoted sources within NYCC who said that the group -- run and staffed by nearly all former ACORN employees -- was asking for donations for specific charitable purposes, including for the teachers union and PCB toxin testing in New York City schools.

However, those donations were being rerouted to pay for Occupy Wall Street protests, the sources said.

Issa requests Lynch to "investigate these allegations to determine if they have merit and prosecute any wrongdoing accordingly."

When asked to comment on Issa's letter, Lynch's spokesman Robert Nardoza would only say, "I have no comment as it is a matter of policy that we do not confirm/deny or discuss investigations."

A spokesman for NYCC did not immediately return's request for comment.

Imagine the odds of this happening.
Do you know the park in NYC that the wall Street protesters are occupying?
Zucotti Park.
Did you know this park is not owned by the city?
It is owned by Brookfield Properties.
Who was just hired by Brookfield Properties as their attorney?
Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
Who sits on the board of Brookfield Properties?
Mayor Bloomberg’s live in girlfriend.
Now, guess what company just received some of the last of the Obama Stimulus $MONEY.
Thaaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, Brookfield Properties.

Isn’t life great!

Here, on a completely unrelated note, Wisconsin is shaping up to be the swing state in the 2012 presidential elections. Not Florida. Not Ohio. But Wisconsin.

Now, guess who owns the company that will be tabulating the electronic votes in Wisconsin.
Thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s right, the largest contributor to Obama, George Soros!. Is that a great coincidence or what?

Remember what Stalin said. “It’s not he who votes that counts. Its he who counts the votes”.
