    i am all for child prostitution. but only if the kids get to keep all the money they make. if they have to give the money to the pimp then its no longer prostitution - its slavery. slavery, as a libertarian, i do not condone.
    Please, for the love of God, stop calling yourself a libertarian. You aren't helping...

    ACORN drops tarnished name and moves to silence critics


    "Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) leaders are using the threat of a law suit to silence and intimidate critics, according to current and former members of the liberal activist group.

    In a letter dated June 11 an attorney for ACORN advised top whistleblowers that their unauthorized use of the organization’s name could make them liable for monetary damages and injunctive relief.
    ACORN executives have also changed their organization’s name, which was tarnished by investigations in at least 14 states of allegations of voter registration fraud during the 2008 presidential campaign, and charges by current and former members of financial mismanagement and misrepresentation.
    The new name will let ACORN leaders continue their operations without worrying about prior bad publicity, according to Marcel Reid of ACORN 8, a group of present and former members.
    “We’ve known for many months now that the name ACORN is going to be retired,” Reid said. “The name has been so damaged to the point where the leadership knows it simply can’t go on as it has with the ACORN label out front and center, especially after all of the reporting.”

    "Dale Rathke, the brother of ACORN founder Wade Rathke, embezzled almost $1 million from the organization in 1999 and 2000, while he was employed as the organization’s chief financial officer with the CCI affiliate. For almost a decade Wade Rathke and other staff members concealed the embezzlement from ACORN’s board of trustees, according to the criminal complaint ACORN 8 members filed against the organization"

    “ACORN has to be decapitated,” Reid said. “The senior staff and current national board should be dismantled. The only way to have reform is for the current leadership to be removed completely. We also need a forensic audit.”
    I wait for Oftencold to actually address my quote.

    1) Are all people of category X immoral hypocrits because their representatives are? That's what Oftencold says.

    2) What percentage of corrupt officials is required for ACORN to be declared corrupt? ACORN has over 400,000 members and many Republicans are still grasping at straws trying to come up with articles on them. On the other hand, the number of Republican Senators and Congressman are far fewer, yet there are probably just as many articles on the corruption of them.

    Smoke: Only after authorized investigation can we define ACORN corrupt, which if there is said investigation, i would bet it will be declared such (assuming the investigation is not corrupt as well).

    ACORN has been charged for voter registration fraud something like 20 times, has charges pending in 14 states, had 50 employees plead guilty, and 30 have been convicted.

    Now we have videotape of workers breaking over a dozen laws in 2 different offices, including supporting child prostitution...

    But your right... How could anyone believe ACORN is corrupt without an "authorized investigation".

    lolololololololololololololololol

    I understand, but apparently it takes much more than a reasonable amount of proof to convince liberals than any of their "good ideas" are flawed, especially the embodiment of the roots of their current administration's leader. Let us hope overwhelming proof will suffice.

    the white house CALLED OFF the investigation into its PARENT organization

    media silence concerning the white house's CALLING OFF judiciary chair CONYERS' investigation into obama's PARENT ORGANIZATION is blatant bias

    just imagine if a republican white house pressured a gop cmte chair to drop looking into voter fraud abuse committed by some red-equivalent of the COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS

    Conyers abandons plan to probe ACORN - Washington Times

    Remember how the 2000 election was "fixed"? and the 2004? And that was all over, honestly, unfounded claims. Obviously the liberals have a little more pull than anyone else (including the american population).

    Re: ACORN Officials Videotaped Telling 'Pimp,' 'Prostitute' How to Lie to IRS

    yes, i do

    and i remember as well in 2000 when the networks called FLORIDA for gore BEFORE THE PANHANDLE CLOSED

    the state turned out to be, hello, virtually TIED

    and yet while the RIGHT LEANING western arm of the state was STILL VOTING, rather and brokaw said gore had captured the SUNSHINE

    ohio, which went for bush by 5 or so points, they didn't call for HOURS

    without doubt, gop turnout in the panhandle was depressed by msm's WRONG intrusion

    one of the most egregious acts of interference on the part of the tv news in my lifetime

    United States presidential election, 2000 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    ancient history, tho, friend

    much more interesting TODAY is the WHITE HOUSE dictating to CONYERS to call off his investigation of ACORN

    I'm not ready to tar the entire ACORN organization as a promoter of sex slavery, but at the very least they need to seriously change the way they train and supervise their people.

    This assumes they aren't trained to do exactly the sort of 'advising' they did; given the history of this outfit, it's highly unlikely they were just acting on their own. They were fired for getting caught. they will also get a deal to keep their mouths shut re others in the group, and will be taken care of later, after the media spotlight is off; they'll be back in the same business.
