    ACORN 'dissolved as a national structure'

    ACORN 'dissolved as a national structure' - Ben Smith - POLITICO.com

    Much of the group's strength lay in its local chapters in places like New York, which appear to be continuing to operate as normal. New York's City Hall News reported today that the local group there had re-emerged under the name "New York Communities for Change."

    UPDATE: A person familiar with the New York reorganization said the new group has a new board, including some relative outsiders, like an official at the union Workers United, Wilfredo Larancuent, as well as most of the old leadership.
    Oh some outsiders.....like the Workers United official but most of the old leadership...under the new name of New York communities for Change.

    Old leadership remains but they're all about change huh?

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Before I read the post, I was planning to say they'll just morph into something else. I guess I don't need to.

    Did you see the latest video of Obama saying he worked with ACORN his entire professional career?

    Yes I saw that, he's declaring close ties with ACORN and when asked about it now that he's President and ACORN is a political ball and chain, it's much too trivial a subject to address.

    He's a liar and a circus clown American, more and more people everyday come to realize it.

    Re: ACORN 'dissolved as a national structure'

    Figure this is mostly a deft PR move for them. They've gotten a LOT of bad press recently and by "deorganizing" and changing their names in the biggest portions where they're situated, while still keeping lightly linked, will enable them to continue to do what they've always been doing while skirting away from the stigma that's begun to be associated with "ACORN"

    This may be a ploy to get Obama to do a bailout?

    Way to go with the name calling. It's such an effective tactic . . . not.

    As for ACORN no longer having a national structure, it's a handy way to keep national ACORN officials from being accountable for the corrupt actions of local and state ACORN offices.

    The real farce pertaining to ACORN is revealed in a statement appearing in Ben Smith's story about ACORN:
    "As far as the work in the communities and policy campaigns, no one will notice the difference," the source said. "Itís people who still believe in their basic mission of fighting for poor people."
    Is "fighting for poor people" really the basic mission of ACORN?

    Hell yeah, it's like fighting for world peace.
