Lifting The Rock On ACORN
August 28, 2009
Matthew Vadum at the American Spectator has a great Special Report on ACORN that details investigations over voter registration fraud and various other illegal activities by the liberal activist network that is key to Democrat political prospects in many key states. According to the report, one top ACORN operative in Nevada – where ACORN registered Mickey Mouse – has cut a plea deal with prosecutors and will soon testify against higher-ups in the organization.
Elsewhere, Vadum writes, former ACORN employees are facing trial on election fraud charges in Pennsylvania; a Democratic prosecutor in Cleveland, OH is investigating ACORN after a grand jury indicted a man for voting illegally after ACORN registered him multiple times; and the Louisiana AG is also sniffing around.
All of this, plus ACORN’s myriad other sleazy activities, seem to back up the conclusion of an investigative report released recently by Congressman Darrell Issa:
ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan political agenda and to manipulate the American electorate.
