  • Good, I'd like every freaking one of them arrested and shut down. They are in big trouble since O'Reilly and Beck started investigating.

  • Finally, some small movement on this racket. But voter fraud is small potatoes, the more pervasive issue is the mountain of donations which all get diverted from community groups to ACORN's headquarters, and none of the local branches have any idea whether they are being given back the money which the donors sent to the Louisiana headquarters.

    This would be simple grand larceny if it werent for the fact that the gov't stimulus bills give millions of taxpayer dollars to ACORN ...

    Glenn Beck has been chasing down this story ever since he learned of a couple of whistle-blowers who were being ignored. Link:

  • I am not shocked we are hearing crickets. Acorn is bad news and I cannot wait till they are finally dismantled and taken down. Hopefully, their ties to our Liar in Chief will be exposed too.
