The most diabolical partnership of all time is no more. After the release of videos depicting two shocking examples of ACORN’s criminal activities, the US Census has finally come to its senses and kicked ACORN to the curb!
From Fox News:
"Over the last several months, through ongoing communication with our regional offices, it is clear that ACORN's affiliation with the 2010 Census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 Census efforts," read a letter from Census Director Robert M. Groves to the president of ACORN.
"Unfortunately, we no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your many local offices. For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership," the letter said.
The news follows the firing Friday of two more ACORN employees after new hidden-camera footage showed workers for the group advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to subvert the law.
Noticed the part I emphasized? That my friends are you and I, people who wrote to Congress, signed Michelle Bachmann’s petition and made our voices known that we did not want that criminal organization anywhere near the census.
I would love to know who on earth was the complete moron who thought ACORN was worthy of helping out with the census. Just from ACORN’s long history of election fraud, they should have been deem persona non grata from the get go. Now the big question, will ACORN just be replaced with another organization that has ties to ACORN? Keep an eye out for that.
In addition to the Census kicking ACORN to the curb, the two girls in the DC video got fired as well as the two from Baltimore. If ACORN thinks that it can hide its evil deed with low-level firings, they have another thing coming to them. People are wise to their game now.
Here is ACORN’s latest response:
The group's leaders said Friday they were "appalled and angry" at what their staffers had done, but insisted the videos were part of a political "smear" campaign and not representative of the institution as a whole.
"But that does not excuse the behavior of the employees," wrote ACORN's president Alton Bennet and executive director Mike Shea. "We have fired them and are initiating an internal review of practices and reminding all staff of their obligation to uphold the highest legal and ethical standards."
Are any of you buying that? You know all they are going to do is to tell their staff how to cover their asses better.
Now here is the part that will make your blood boil, the Baltimore city’s state attorney is considering going after the two who made the tape of ACORN!

STATEMENT OF STATE’S ATTORNEYS OFFICE FOR BALTIMORE CITY RELATIVE TO THE ALLEGED BALTIMORE ACORN INCIDENT
Baltimore, MD – September 11, 2009 – We have received inquiries from citizens and the media asking whether the Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office would initiate a criminal investigation for acts allegedly committed at ACORN offices located in Baltimore. The only information received in reference to this alleged criminal behavior was a YouTube video. Upon review by this office, the video appears to be incomplete. In addition, the audio portion could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law, Annotated Code of Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article §10-402, which requires two party consent.
If it is determined that the audio portion now being heard on YouTube was illegally obtained, it is also illegal under Maryland Law to willfully use or willfully disclose the content of said audio. The penalty for the unlawful interception, disclosure or use of it is a felony punishable up to 5 years.
Talk about no good deed goes unpunished! Notice the emphasized part here too? Says a lot doesn’t it? You can contact Baltimore city’s state attorney here and let her know she is being a damn fool.
