ACORN Now A Turnip

Community Activist Group Folds

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, known as Acorn, is disbanding, the community activist group said Monday.

The group long helped register low-income people to vote in ways that were widely viewed as helping Democrat candidates. But scandals in recent years sapped Acorn’s credibility, making it an embarrassment for Democrats and a target for Republicans. Those scandals also made it hard for Acorn to raise money, prompting the decision to close down what was once a national organization.

A large offshoot formerly known as Acorn Housing, which counsels low-income homeowners, has changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America and plans to continue operations, officials of that group said.

Both Acorn groups have been under siege since September, when Web sites and television news outlets released secretly recorded videos in which Acorn and Acorn Housing employees, encouraged by undercover filmmakers, offered advice on how to set up brothels and evade taxes. The filmmakers were posing as a pimp and a prostitute.

/unfortunately, like the sleazy Democrat vote fraud enabling criminal enterprise they are, they’ll probably pop up again, in some other form, by some other name
