    ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers and Shredding Documents...

    I hate it when that happens. Looks like someone should be losing their tax exemption.

    Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York -- operating as New York Communities for Change -- have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources

    LOL - I laughed out loud.

    “It was pretty funny. Jonathan told staff they don’t pay for protesters, but the people in the meeting who work there objected and said, ‘Wait, you pay us to go to the protests every day?’ Then Jonathan said ‘No, but that’s your job,’ and staffers were like, ‘Yeah, our job is to protest,’ and Westin said, ‘No your job is to fight for economic and social justice. We just send you to protest.’

    “Staff said, ‘Yes, you pay us to carry signs.’ Then Jonathan says, ‘That’s your job.’ It went on like that back and forth for a while.”
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Ahh yes, the ACORN boogeyman.

    Again.

    Breaking news by none other than Fox News. I'm sure they're presenting you a Fair and Balanced picture of what's going on.

    I love how quickly fox news is dismissed by people.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Do you just not believe that ACORN is involved or do you just think it doesn't matter, pb and whoever else?

But NYCC has flatly denied these claims, and ACORN -- which has been a right-wing media bogeyman for years -- disbanded in November 2010.

    IOW, you don't have any valuable to add, except to attack FNC? And you support your statements with a Media Matters article, of all things.

    If the story is completely fabricated, then ACORN should totally sue Fox News for telling all of these lies...will they?

    What was ACORN was a group of poor/low income people, please show me why/how they would pay to organize protestors. We are talking real world stuff here, not Glenn Beck conspiracies.
