    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...

    In their stunning off-off Broadway debut, Occupy Whatever sure created a lot of mass- as in trash. 30 tons in LA, and more in New York City. And that’s just the trash they left behind, not the weight of the newsprint wasted on unsuccessfully explaining a movement to the American people that either absolutely had a definite platform or didn’t depending on the day, the hour, the park and the spokestree making the statement on behalf of Occupy Something.  But the Movement without a Cause isn’t quite dead yet- in fact it might be feeling much better now that they’ve...

    Andrew Breitbart's Big Government ^ | November 2, 2011 | Publius
    Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby have released the latest video clip from their visit to Occupy Wall Street. In the video, an activist named Channing, who has been at the Occupy Wall Street protests from the beginning, volunteers the information that the former ACORN organization–through its new front group, New York Communities for Change–is paying $10 per hour and $100 per day to homeless people to attend the demonstrations. She suggests that ACORN’s involvement is unwelcome, alleging that its homeless employees are “being paid to come here and mess things up.” Channing’s information corroborates reporting by Big Government on ACORN’s...

    As the remnants of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now regroup in order to bring chaos to the 2012 election cycle, ACORN’s renamed New York chapter is teeming with activity. The successor organization, called New York Communities for Change (NYCC), operates out of the same office on Nevins Street in Brooklyn that is home to ACORN and its partisan arm, the socialist Working Families Party of New York. Longtime ACORN leader Jon Kest is executive director of NYCC. Kest is the brother of Steve Kest, former executive director of ACORN, who has joined fellow radical community organizer Van...
