ACORN Dispersing Resources Into Other Far-Left Groups

Story here.

No matter what happens to ACORN, the problem is that it will continue to do what it does, via other far-left groups.
(...) “ACORN’s own training manual reflects a business model in which money is taken from poor people and then funneled into partisan political efforts.”

“ACORN is currently in the process of changing its name and has already transferred resources to several chapters of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and possibly Data and Field Services, the Working Families Party, Change to Win and the Council for Unity,” said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee.


“The president’s close ties with ACORN, which date back over 15 years, are of additional concern,” Smith said. “President Obama previously served as ACORN’s lawyer, participated in ACORN training programs in Chicago, and sat on the boards of two organizations that provided funding to ACORN’s Chicago chapter.”

“The president’s ties to ACORN taint any conclusion that the Justice Department may reach with regard to whether or not to investigate and prosecute ACORN employees,” Smith said. “That’s why I request that the attorney general appoint a special prosecutor to oversee the investigation into ACORN.”
We'll have to train a critical, analytical eye upon those other far-left groups as well from now on.

Now, how about that special prosecutor?

Obviously the Obamacrats can't be trusted to investigate and prosecute their comrades. They won't do it, and they'll get away with doing nothing.
