Clinton Associate Involved In Post Office Scandal?


This could be the start of yet another Clinton scandal…

Former U.S. Postal Service Governor Alan Kessler pressured postal executives to scuttle a planned property purchase that would have cost a friend millions of dollars, according to a report from the Office of Inspector General. The IG also found that the Postal Service general counsel, Mary Anne Gibbons, failed to act as she should have to halt Kessler’s actions and report them to the IG.

ACORN Suspends Advising Clients


Being mired in accusations and allegations of criminal activity, ACORN has suspended advising clients until after an independent review is completed.

ACORN’s chief executive Bertha Lewis stated that she was “ordering a halt to any new intakes into ACORN’s service programs until completion of an independent review.” She further stated:

“ACORN’s independent Advisory Council will help select an independent auditor/reviewer no later than September 18th to review all of the systems and processes called into question by the videos.”

Who are the members of ACORN’s Advisory Council?

The Advisory Council includes John Podesta, president of the liberal Center for American Progress; Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, a former lieutenant governor of Maryland; Andrew Stern, international president of Service Employees International Union; Henry Cisneros, a former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development; John Banks, vice president of Government Relations Con Ed; and Eric Eve, senior vice president of Global Consumer Group, Community Relations, of Citigroup.

Gosh, golly, gee…their decisions aren’t going to be partial and biased. ACORN is stalling for time to regroup and perform damage control operations. It is a powerful organization and they aren’t going to let little things like corruption and scandal to stop them from furthering their various Marxist agendas [Article - 1.

Wade Rathke Defends ACORN – Blasts Conservatives And Fox News


Wade Rathke, ACORN’s co-founder and former chief organizer, blasts conservatives and Fox News for “unfair” coverage of and said to “be careful and fair about how it looks at the organization’s work.” Fox News reports:

Rathke has repeatedly blasted the news media and conservative groups for intentionally targeting ACORN because of its progressive agenda. In a posting on his “Chief Organizer Blog,” Rathke said the Census Bureau’s decision to break ties with ACORN showed “how willing the Obama administration is open to a cave-in to the conservatives on false pretenses on a completely fake ‘issue.'”

“This is all just more reputational McCarthyism as the rightwing and Republicans attack ACORN,” he wrote.

That’s the problem. The news coverage and investigations are truthful and fair—that’s what is driving Rathke and those like him absolutely nuts. Rathke is in no position to speak of “integrity” and “social justice” [Article - 1. ACORN Founder Wade Rathke Wanted Terrorist Attack on Republican Convention to Succeed | 2.

ACORN Investigation In San Bernardino: Shocking Footage And Admission By ACORN Worker


Yet another undercover investigation by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles involving child prostitution. This time they went to the left coast: San Bernardino, California. Is there any different advice given by the workers there? Let’s find out:

Wow! Shocking! The information does not change. It’s the same advice and much, much more for Mr. O’Keefe and Miss Giles. I guess it’s not an “east coast thing”. Tresa Kaelke, the ACORN worker in the video and being a former prostitute herself, empathizes with the “prostitute” portrayed by Hannah Giles. She is so understanding and helpful, being a free-thinking product of the 60s generation. She also freely discloses all of the politicians (even listing them by name) she lobbies for. Oh, but she doesn’t stop there. She goes on to reveal little tidbits about her past life and being married to an abusive husband, detailing that she…killed…him…in self-defense…. Read More…

ACORN Applies For More Government Money, In Spite Of Scandals And Corruption


ACORN, President Obama’s “community organizing” agency of choice, in the face of mounting scandals and corruption, have applied for more government funds [Article - ACORN wants another $6 million despite scandals]. In other words, taxpayer money.

ACORN has access to, but may not qualify for over $8 billion dollars of “stimu-less” money [Video - Who in Congress Is Helping ACORN Grow? | Article - 1. ACORN got $53 million in federal funds since 94, now eligible for up to $8 billion more | 2. Biased PolitiFact.com Covers for ACORN, Attacks Michele Bachmann | 3. ACORN's Stimulus].

We’ll find out if somebody in Congress will wise up and think twice before approving any application for funding from ACORN until the organization is thoroughly investigated.

UPDATE: Fellow blog poster CW stole my thunder a little bit [Blog Post - Senate Votes To Cut Off Federal ACORN Funding]. It seems ACORN’s money spigot is temporarily shut off for now.
