ACORN Review Panel a Sham

September 29, 2009

Repeating opinions he’s expressed on his TV and radio shows, commentator Glenn Beck told the Washington Times that the supposedly independent review panel ACORN has established to recommend reforms to the group is a sham.

“I think this whole thing is bogus,” Beck told the newspaper’s morning radio show, “America’s Morning News.”

“They moved too fast, too quietly. The president is not involved. Until you start going to the people at the top … the people connected to the White House, you cannot clean up this mess.”

Activists working for the left-wing character-assassination factory known as Media Matters for America are beside themselves, fuming with rage that the Washington Times dares to report on Beck’s view of the panel. According to the leftist smear artists:

For the third time in the past two weeks, The Washington Times has allowed Glenn Beck to dictate its coverage by presenting his attacks on progressives as news. A September 25 article was premised entirely on Beck’s opinion that ACORN’s internal ethics investigation is “bogus” because its advisory board members are “the worst of the worst,” without providing any actual evidence that would undermine the investigation’s integrity.

In fact Beck has provided proof backing up his arguments on recent shows.

“OK, it’s not an “investigation” per se — that would be crazy; that would make too much sense,” said Beck. Instead, Democratic lawmakers have “asked for a ‘comprehensive report’ on all activities and funding surrounding ACORN; whether or not Congress violated the Constitution in voting to de-fund ACORN, and if the two kids who went undercover violated any laws.”

    Just like asking us to believe the House and Senate ethics committee’s accept the common definition of ethics.

    Remember that ACORN is a private corporation, so it does not have to divulge any of it’s finances. This organization operates hundreds of ‘front groups'(Watch out who they get to replace ACORN for the census , bet they have connections), many of which conceal their relationship to ACORN. In 2008, there were at least 294 front groups, nonprofits, and businesses related to ACORN, the vast majority of which listed their headquarters at the site of a funeral home that went out of business. Follow the money to all the politicians that have been covering ACORN and you’ll see several trails leading to the white house.

      Wait a minute. I was under the impression that ACORN was a charitable tax exempt organization. A 501c3 and therefor a public corp. A community organization, a nonprofit.

    If the states and this administration don’t stop funding of any kind to the Acorn organization, it will leave no doubt that they are in with them. A real investigation would reveal who in Government has been tied to and in bed with them. In Illinois our own Governor has hidden the fact that taxpayer money in the amount of 100,000 dollars in two payments is going to Acorn as recently as one month ago. There is much more corruption involved with the Acorn organization than has been exposed so far.
