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?
