I know it’s a little early to be thinking about roasted toasted chestnuts acorns on an open fire, with ‘jack frost nipping at the air’ and all, but that song came to mind with the most recent revelations of more investigations and indictments of ACORN. This is especially important in the context of recent posts on the application of RICO, the racketeering act, to ACORN’s activities.
The key will be to connect the dots–the pattern of corruption the organization demonstrates across state lines. Hiring primary thugs to be bussed across state lines for intimidation purposes, or fraudulent voter registration is part of this interstate criminal enterprise.
It is ripe for a federal investigation, and we will see if AG Eric Holder “Holdback” stifles any investigation brought forth. And we will also find out where Patrick Fitzgerald may come out on this, as the ACORN issue appears to have makings of bringing down Al Capone Barack Obama and underlings.
And, if ACORN was intended to be Obama’s ‘civilian army’, he has just been dealt a huge blow. This cannot be covered up, and transparent efforts to dismiss it (e.g., Harry Reid) will worsen the problem for them.
Each of the stories linked below is of considerable value in exploring the threads of ACORN corruption. Enjoy:
- ACORN and SIEU: Anatomy of a Shakedown. Superb work by Anita Monicef, ACORN whistleblower, regarding an interesting angle on ACORN. the Carlyle Group, and tactics
- Special Prosecutor to Probe ballot forgeries linked to democrats.
- Bank breaks ties with ACORN. Well, like duh. Why did it take you so long? Seriously, this bank was one of the first targets of ACORN’s tactics.
Now of course, ACORN is filing a $3 million dollar lawsuit against the video reporters who caught ACORN workers willingly offering to set up a brothel with underage, illegal immigrant children. The suit is filed in Baltimore, Maryland. Maryland has a statue requiring that party being taped must be notified that they are being taped. Its what got Linda Tripp nailed when she taped her conversations with Monica Lewinsky.
Tripp, by the way, just praised “Obama’s purity of soul”. 😮
Wow, that put an end to this post pretty quick! lol
