  • ACORN has also recently changed their name to COI--Community Organizers International or as another poster coined "Conflict Of Interest!" (I guess they need more stimulus money in order to change their letterhead/stationary! LOL)

  • They are criminals and thugs, all under the disguise of community organizers.

  • Well apparently they are an organization that deals in fraud of various types, condones sexual abuse even towards children, human trafficking, prostitution,...and there is more but I think you get the drift.

  • There are a number of brief video "articles" about it.

    Here is a link to one of the, titled "The Roots of ACORN":

    There are other articles, such as the ones about the women within ACORN who are trying to investigate where the $millions in donations have gone.
