A lawyer for a whistleblower on the activist group ACORN is prepared to tell a House panel Thursday that the group provided liberal causes with protest-for-hire services and coerced donations from the targets of demonstrations through a mob-style "protection" racket.
ACORN called it the "muscle for the money" program, according to prepared testimony Pittsburgh lawyer Heather Heidelbaugh plans to deliver at a hearing of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution, civil rights and civil liberties.
A copy of her prepared testimony was obtained by The Washington Times.
The protest shakedowns are among a slew of accusations that Ms. Heidelbaugh intends to make against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. She also will accuse the nonprofit group of violating tax, campaign-finance and other laws by sharing a list of President Obama's maxed-out campaign donors to solicit more funds for a get-out-the-vote drive.
ACORN, predictably, denies the whole thing. No doubt they're going to have the best, most expensive legal talent team ever seen... and more, if the accusations are correct... and no doubt the Big Politically Correct Corporate Media will do everything it can to cover up the truth. As they have for the Clintons... only more so now.
I guess it's time again for B. Hussein Obama to say, "Hey, look! Waaaaay over there! Rush Limbaugh! Awful, horrible, right-wing, scary Republican man on radio!"
If that doesn't work, he'll summon the dancing drunken chimpanzees or the naked lipstick lesbians.
If that still fails to distract attention from the latest inconvenient scandal, he'll release a trillion bucks of newly-printed money into the streets as a last resort...
