The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed leaderless Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing guerrilla protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell FoxNews.com.
The former director of New York ACORN, Jon Kest, and his top aides are now busy working at protest events for New York Communities for Change (NYCC). That organization was created in late 2009 when some ACORN offices disbanded and reorganized under new names after undercover video exposes prompted Congress to cut off federal funds.

"Who is you champion of a 99% economy?" (this headline is from their own website)
By: Jon Kest, Executive Director, New York Communities for Change For the past two years, New York Communities for Change members have seen firsthand the damage that the foreclosure crisis has caused in our communities. Together we've watched vacant, boarded-up houses pop up on block after block in Southeast Queens and parts of Brooklyn...
Any way they can.
The same ACORN with a new name.
It’s like a beast that can grow new heads as fast as you can cut the old ones off.
This organization (ACORN, aka COI) gets our tax dollars. If tax dollars were filtering into the TEA Party, the libs would throw a screaming hissy fit.
Too bad the GOP pansies won’t do a damned thing about it.
Fox doesn’t know the difference between “roll” and “role?”
Are they using Stimulus money that 0bozo promised ACORN?
O. M. G. I am so NOT surprised by this revelation!
This was always suspected as Obama is they’re head community organizer.Who woulda ever thought a POTUS that makes Louis Farrahkkan look tame?
Yep! Another “big” surprise, eh?
Are there any active Occupys left? All the major ones have been busted.
The Soros-financed people behind Occupy (We Can’t Wait!), are the same exact people and Soros-funded orgs that were behind the anti-war movement (World Can’t Wait!), and the 2005 La Raza Protests.
The idea being to create chaos and unease going in to a major election.
Remember kiddies, we aren’t dealing with your father’s Democrats anymore. These are the Radical Chomsky/Zinn useful idiot Wanna-be Communists.
I thought all these children had gone home to Mom’s warm basement?
