Posted on 10/05/2009 7:58:15 PM PDT by BornToBeAmerican
Democratic lawmakers in a handful of states are facing pressure from Republicans to distance themselves from the Service Employees International Union as a result of its ties to Acorn.
Republicans in Kansas, Virginia and Illinois in recent weeks have called on union-backed Democrats to return SEIU campaign contributions, citing the close connection between the union and the community organizing group, whose full name is the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
Acorn has been under fire in the past month after secretly recorded videos showed Acorn employees offering advice on evading taxes, setting up brothels and smuggling illegal immigrants. Acorn has called the actions unacceptable and has fired the workers involved.

FReep mail me if you want on/off the list.
I REALLY want to see the thugs at SEIU go down with the ACORNs. I hate corruption.
Where is Gov. Charlie Crist and the Republican controlled House and Senate in Florida?
>> Where is Gov. Charlie Crist
No idea. Have you checked the gay bars?
De nada. I have a passion to see ACORN, the SEIU, and their affiliated organizations go down in flames. Burn, baby, burn.
These two young moviemakers and earthshakers deserve to put up for the Pulitzer Prize for their work! No chance to win due to their politics, but they should still be put up.
Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
So, just who, or what are the names of all these community associations that form this association?
How do these individual organizations run ACORN, where is ACORN's constitution, and how are all grants/contributions to ACORN used or divided up between these (so far nameless) community organizations, how much and by which community org. for what reason? (Frog Racing Community Club of Chicago?)
Or, is ACORN a fake "association" and only associated with itself?
No way, they should get a Nobel Prize. If AL Gore and Arafat can get one, these people should be a shoe in.
What’s really encouraging about the ACORN scandal is that it has come about not only without being reported by the MSM, but in spite of the MSM’s concerted effort to spin and conceal it.
here’s a short list. not sure of the accuracy. I searched by address for New Orleans ACORN.
No idea. Have you checked the gay bars?
Probably consulting with Mr. "Wide Stance"
TWO PEOPLE WITHOUT THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THE "professionals" have access to to report such MONUMENTAL MOMENTS IN HISTORY!!!
THE MSM ARE PUNKS THAT ARE GOING THE WAY OF THE BUUGY WHIP!!!
JOIN THE TEAM, MSM, GET A PAIR, MSM, AND JOIN THE HUNT FOR JOURNALISTIC IMMORTALITY!!!
You will have to report on your own side for once.
It’s called exposure, exposure, exposure. The DC Sewer RATs can’t stand exposure of their corruption.
Thanks for all the pings. You’re doing a great job. This is all very enjoyable!
I am trying to keep up with the news.
All. Please ping me with ACORN news.
Republicans: Make SURE that SEIU is out of politicking in Virginia and New Jersey where elections are looming. Those are the MOST likely places where they will be trying to steal another election soon.
Finally. Making the connection between Democrat candidates and the SEIU has always been a boiler plate item in any properly done political research report on them. Our firm has been saying this for years and for years our clients have ignored that section of our report. maybe now they will listen. Bravo Republicans in Virginia Kansas and Illinois!
You mean sorta like Al Gorge? Maybe Hollywood will give them an Academy Award too!!!!! "Disgusting" isn't a strong enough word for those self-serving groups!
guilt by association, remember RATS?

Sorry, I forgot the (sarc) tag. Yes, I admire Hannah and James as much as you.
