ACORN News – Lawsuit, Consitutionality, Harry Reid

by the Left Coast Rebel

I didn’t write anything about ACORN this week, opting instead to write up an encompassing piece for the weekend. For myself and many others, the exposition of ACORN is so much bigger than ACORN itself. It’s about transparency and accountability within our institutions. It’s about citizen journalism taking precedence over the institutionalized corporate state-media complex. It’s about simple rule of law. This response from to a new reader sums up the ACORN struggle, the stand against the corruption at every level of power –

“May we all stem the tide of this deadly cancer infecting our Republic-experiment, may we stop the storm of those who wish her ill. May we put an end forever to the ill of collectivism and the antithesis of that which our beautiful land was founded. May we band together in friendship of these common goals.”

That to me is the spirit of the fight against ACORN. So in that spirit I will bring you to several updates. I’m using Biggovernmnet.com as my portal of ACORN stories, go there for any other updates.

First off I turn you to Breitbart, O’Keefe and Giles. As was predicted by many, ACORN is bringing suit against these three individuals. I could go into myriad details but instead will direct you to donate to the Legal Defense Funds of both Breitbart and Hannah Giles, O’Keefe is in the process of setting up a fund as well. Pass this along, if you could.

Next stop – the leftwing mobilized effort to call the Defund ACORN Act unconstitutional. According to the Heritage Foundation here, the Defund Act is anything but. Also, ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis is running around saying that Congressional action against the group is unconstitutional as well. How about this from her –

“One unintended – and positive – consequence of the witch hunt
against ACORN is that it could help rein in the likes of Halliburton and
Blackwater and even Wall St, if the standard is that organizations that have broken the law shouldn’t get federal money, then let’s set that standard consistently. There are numerous corporations that have been proven records of malfeasance.”

Hmm, exposing ACORN’s corruption could possibly shed some light on corporate welfare as well? Other incestuous arrangements with myriad organizations? I agree, how about Americans use this teachable moment with ACORN to clean out our entire system? She will learn to regret those words. Lastly for this piece, I am reading here that Nevada Senator Harry Reid is blocking an ACORN probe in the Senate. The piece also outlines much of the Nevadian malfeasance that ACORN has fostered. Apparently Reid knows who buttered his bread and is engaging in a bit of quid pro quo. From the story

Despite all this evidence and a request in writing by 28 GOP senators — and despite the fact the U.S. Senate voted 83-7 on Sept. 14 to block ACORN from bidding for any more federal grant money — “Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., is refusing to hold a Senate hearing on ACORN’s activities,” the National Republican Senatorial Committee complained Wednesday.

Mr. Reid replied additional investigations might distract lawmakers from addressing more important matters, including health care and
economic recovery.

Disgusting. Pinky shouldn't be the leader of a horse manure farm let alone Senate Majority leader.

As for Bertha Lewis, maybe she should sit back and remember who's funding her corrupt organization. WE control the purse strings, you Mrs. Butterworth-looking twit!

Well, this is a "duh", isn't it. We're not going to get any justice from this administration. We'll keep pushing and annoying at the bad guys but I don't expect to see any real changes until after the next election.
