Please Let This Be The End of ACORN

ACORN uses the poor and uneducated to basically campaign for Democrats. Above that they use them and teach them how to cheat the system. Worst, It was a major contributor to the subprime meltdown by bullying lenders to make home loans on easy terms and conducting “strikes” against banks so they’d lower credit standards.

What does ACORN have to do with Obama? Just another one of those in a long list of questionable close associations. One of Barack Obama's first big "community organizer" jobs involved ACORN in 1992 and he trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court as a lawyer. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN in 2008 for voter registration efforts. And we all know how that turned out. They ended up registering the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys and Micky Mouse among other celebrities. They even canvassed for Obama last year.

In case you have been watching ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, or reading any mainstream newspapers and no idea what I'm writing about, Ace sums it up for us so far:

Let's Recap: In all five offices, ACORN officials sought to help out a prostitute. Fine, let's let that slide.

In five offices, ACORN officials sought to help out a prostitute who told them she was bringing around a dozen girls 13-15 years old into the country to be sex slaves.

In four of the offices (and maybe the fifth, we don't know yet), various methods of tax evasion or false statements on tax filings were encouraged by the ACORN staff.

In one of the offices, a tweaker seemed interested in leaving ACORN to come help out at the underage child sex slave brothel.

In one of the offices, a creepy guy told Hannah he had "connections" in Tijuana which might be useful for smuggling 13-15 year old sex slaves across the border.

He also solicited Hannah for sex. People are blowing this off as no big deal. I think it is. Because the reason I think he was offering to help smuggle child sex slaves across the border is he wanted to have sex with Hannah, and he figured that was his in.

So: In all five offices -- which are official federal "partners" with the IRS, being paid to help low-income people file taxes -- ACORN provided advice chiefly amounting to tax fraud or evasion and in several cases offered assistance in running a child sex slave brothel.

Five for five.

A few bad apples, you know.

Now, ACORN claims that lots of offices behaved properly before Giles and O'Keefe caught these bad actors. Trouble is, so what even if that is true, but it's not true. ACORN claimed the New York and San Diego offices turned them away; we can now see that is as far from true as can be imagined. Hell, in San Diego, the guy wanted to help coyote tweeners across the border!

ACORN is like the ideas of most of liberals. On paper it sounds good and compassionate, but in reality it always turns corrupt and wasting our tax payer money.

Embezzlement is also a part of ACORN which the msm skimmed over. In July of '08,The New York Times reported that the brother of ACORN founder had embezzled 1 million dollars from ACORN, but in an effort to keep this from becoming public, ACORN did not alert police. Instead Drummond Pike, the founder and chief executive of the Tides Foundation, who has long poured money into ACORN, paid off the note to make it right. In a July 12 e-mail message to the leader of ACORN, Mr. Kest, Acorn’s political director, Zach Pollett, wrote: “I talked to Drummond on this yesterday and had Beth Kingsley” — Acorn’s lawyer — “prepare a ‘keep your yaps shut’ confidentiality memo to people at Acorn and CCI.”

Corrupt to the core.

ACORN's lofty goal of organizing the poor and powerless has done very little to give them power or keep them from being poor. Why? Well, that is pretty simple. They fail to teach self responsibility and hard work. The poor do not need to be organized, they need to be empowered by their own dedication to hard work, determination for a better life, and (most importantly) making good life choices.

You want to help low income Americans get low income loans? You want to register as many people as possible to vote? You want to help the poor get housing? Great. Let's do it. But let's do it with a heck of a lot more oversight and not a overtly partisan organization run by corrupt hacks.
