This episode shows the power of the voice of the citizens. Normally, the pols on ACORN's graft list would have tried their best to sweep this away and let ACORN remain ACORN. Obama would have had them running the census count. Al Franken would win another election. However, thanks to media other than the liberal MSM the foul stench of fraud that is ACORN was uncovered. Currupt held up by the corrupt. The US citizens made it known that this type of $h!+ is not going to continue without heads rolling. The vile slime of lying politics is on the run. Its about time.

They're just sticking creditors with unpaid bills. It's like a Hydra; chop off one head and seven grow in its place. The demise of ACORN is strictly a legal, financial maneuver. The Leftist cancer grows apace.

Don't be so sure. The socialists still have 6 months to "deem" tens of millions illegal aliens US citizens, eligible to vote Deemocrat, with a crammed through amnesty bill, just like the hijacking of health insurance. The sad reality is the looters may be the rulers and masters from here on out.

When the Brown shirts were banned they just formed cells and
took on different names. One group called itself “The
Acorns”. Could history be repeating itself?

when the SA was disbanded after the night of the long knives, there was lots of openings for good little facists, in the SS and the Gestapo.

and so it will be the 0baminations little acorns....

This is just a ploy that the media is providing cover with. They're simply re-branding and reforming under a different name.

From what I read, ACORN may have folded but they arn't gone. They will be back in a new package with a new name but once inside it is the same discusting turds that were in the original.

The ACORN never falls far from the tree. I wonder how many pimps and prostitutes are allowed in the back door at the White House these days?

"ACORN has faced a series of well-orchestrated, relentless, well-funded right-wing attacks that are unprecedented since the McCarthy era," she said. "The videos were a manufactured, sensational story that led to rush to judgment and an unconstitutional act by Congress."

Uh, huh, you will always be victims even when you do wrong. Uh, huh.

You folks are funny! The same dozen or so posters I expected to see. I love your irrational rants. It makes me laugh. It is painfully easy to see who is clearly out of touch in this country.

The Amnesty Bill will be the next thing. The Dems know it is the only way to get elected. All the looney libtards will back him on this one too.

They'll just re-name themselves and STILL be bankrolled by the SEIU and other selfish, manipulative skunks who are personal penny pinchers yet generous with other peoples' hard earned money.

Yea, I guess two students with a hidden camera represents a well-orchestrated, relentless and well-funded attack. Commical.

The only well-funded and well-orchestrated anything was the main stream media's attempt to burry this story. They refused to cover it for two full weeks until it grew enough legs online that they had no choice.

And they are absolutely not folding, simplying disbaning the national body and leaving many of the individual chapters in place. They should say, "The national coordination of local ACORN chapters has been disolved. They could (but wouldn't) add, "to slide back into obscurity so that they can continue their practices outside of the public eye".

And I wonder how many anonymous white racist cowards make up stories about the President because he is black.
