    LOL, not the topic I'd expect to see a link to my old home paper pop up.

    Though I find it funny that you use a wholey agenda driven person writing an agenda driven editorial with the vast majority of it rooted in opinion rather than fact and giving no specifics as to what the CSR actually investigated to somehow prove how bad and wrong someone else was for being agenda driven.....
    Booo! You can do better than that. Does it matter what the source is when the fact remains they were exonerated by a nonpartisan congressional panel, the CRS? Please tell me you can do better than this.

    Wasn't the only evidence against them inadmissable in court anyway? Not that I know much about this, but if that's the only evidence, and even if it shows murder, isn't it worthless?

    Actually, I wasn't complaining about the source directly (The paper). Actually, I was just kind of interested in that. Roanoke is a small (though biggest in its area) city in Southwest Virginia that I'm from and I was just surprised to see a random story from there pop up.

    However, in regards to the source who wrote it, not particularly. You have people in this thread complaining that the man's comments on ACORN can't be trusted because he has an agenda.....and then you post an ar ticle by a person with an agenda as proof of this.

    The article doesn't even address the CSR's report outside of summarizing how they read it.

    What was actually looked into by the report. Whether they broke the law or not is extremely broad and without clarification (was it individual branches? was it during the election? was it about the things alledged in the video). This is the problem with using an EDITORIAL rather than an actual news article. A news article generally tries to get FACTS, not opinions. This person included little to nothing of the CSR, gave no specifics of what the CSR was looking at. They gave their own summary of the information they read that they don't tell us about and proceed to give us their opinion.

    Its not that the source was not credible, its that the source did'nt really give facts, just their opinion.

    How about actually linking to the CSR's report?

    You know, this dweeb should have taken the advise that popped up on his computer screen the day before:

    He's bad for being a criminal. If he's found guilty he should be punished. That doesn't magically change the ACORN footage into something else. And the hypocritical nature of some of those who immedietely doubted him on the ACORN story and have repeatedly said it doesn't matter but are acting like they just found him molesting puppies while sacrificing a kid on top of a stolen Picaso and as such must just be an agenda driven compulsive liar is rather funny.

    Seriously though, trying to falsely represent yourself to the over the line degree he did and tapping phones, for whatever reason, is just way over the line. The punishment may vary based on motive and purpose but there's nothing that'd really excuse it.
    i posted this because i found it pretty funny that the guy who actually created the acorn scandal was arrested for breaking the law. no, it doesn't change the acorn footage, but it does tell us what lengths he would go to for a story which damages dems.
