According to Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government and The Washington Post, ACORN is preparing for bankruptcy.
There is both good and bad news here. The good news is that ACORN and CEO Bertha Lewis, herself not a shining star of honesty, have been found out; that they both have been violating all kinds election laws. Some of their people have, in addition to gross voter registration fraud, have even stooped to showing their clients how to run brothels using illegal-aliens and minors and how to avoid paying income taxes, etc.
The bad news is that ACORN is apparently in the process of shutting down so that it came come back as another; or several other entities, whose goal it is to perform the same functions under different hats.
“Over the last six months, at least 15 of the group’s 30 state chapters have disbanded and have no plans of re-forming, Acorn officials said.
The California and New York chapters, two of the largest, have severed their ties to the national group and have independently reconstituted themselves with new names.
Several other state groups are also re-forming outside the ACORN umbrella, and will not be affected if the national organization files for bankruptcy.
This week, the Maryland chapter announced that it would not reopen its offices, which were shuttered in September in the wake of a widely publicized series of video recordings made by two conservative activists, posing as a prostitute and a pimp, who secretly filmed Acorn workers providing them tax advice. In the videos, Acorn workers told one of the activists, James E. O’Keefe III, how to hide prostitution activities from the authorities and avoid taxes, raising no objections to his proposed criminal activities.”
