    Attorney General Eric Holder told an audience in Paris on Monday that he and President Barack Obama are committed to battling corruption as "one of the great struggles of our time." Holder, addressing the 35-nation Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, said the World Bank estimates that more than $1 trillion in bribes are paid out each year. "Put simply, corruption undermines the promise of democracy," Holder said. "It imperils development, stability, and faith in our markets. And it weakens the rule of law."

    Interviewed on Fox just moments ago, Andrew Breitbart claimed that alleged Landrieu phone tamperer James O'Keefe "sat in jail for 28 hours without access to an attorney." Breitbart, who has been on a public campaign defending O'Keefe, a paid contributor to Breitbart's, also charged that the U.S. Attorney's office in Louisiana leaked information to the press "helping" them to frame the episode as "Watergate Junior." Breitbart complained that after the news of the arrests broke last Tuesday, O'Keefe's attorney and Breitbart himself were being called by the media but they could not locate O'Keefe -- "and that's because he...

    Safe Schools Czar Reading List Unveiled Bethany Stotts, December 4, 2009 Accuracy in Academia has long reported on the types of smut promoted in America’s public schools. Now, according to Scott Baker of and ‘The B-Cast,’ a “team of independent researchers” has prepared a report on the Gay Straight and Lesbian Education Network (GLSEN) reading list for students K-12. (The researchers focus on 11 of the books GLSEN suggested for 7th through 12th graders). Gateway Pundit has the whole story. (Warning: extremely explicit material.) I’m not sure what parents would want their kids reading these books: We were unprepared...

    ACORN, the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now, is in the process of changing its name and has already transferred many of its resources to several other left-wing advocacy and political groups, according to a report released Tuesday by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. While the Justice Department has said that federal housing funds should continue to flow to ACORN, several congressmen, in a joint hearing of the House Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee, said they want a special prosecutor to investigate the use of taxpayer dollars to the group. Several weeks back, Congress...

    Current law prohibits the community organization ACORN and its associated groups from receiving any federal funds from any federal law currently on the books. However, the Eric Holder Justice Department has interpreted the law as allowing federal agencies to pay ACORN for "binding contractual obligations" made before the current prohibition was enacted. This questionable interpretation may go a long way toward neutralizing ACORN's funding prohibition. The actual ban reads as follows: "None of the funds made available from this joint resolution or any other prior Act may be provided to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), or...

    A New Jersey hospital is denying accusations that ACORN workers have been inside collecting absentee ballots for the state's gubernatorial race. East Orange General Hospital CEO Kevin Slavin said Tuesday that "all proper protocols" were followed as part of its program to allow patients to vote via absentee ballot, and that no third-party groups were signing up patients. "Other than the specifically designated and trained staff to hand out and collect these ballots, no advocacy groups were authorized nor allowed access to the hospital to hand out absentee ballots to patients as has been recently reported in unsubstantiated blogs and...

    John Fund: The state has received a flood of 180,000 absentee ballot requests. On some 3,000 forms the signature doesn't match the one on file with county clerks. Yet citing concerns that voters would be disenfranchised, Democratic Party lawyer Paul Josephson wrote New Jersey's secretary of state asking her "to instruct County Clerks not to deny applications on the basis of signature comparison alone." Mr. Josephson maintained that county clerks "may be overworked and are likely not trained in handwriting analysis" and insisted that voters with suspect applications should be allowed to cast provisional ballots. Those ballots, of course, would...
