From this profoundly warped announcement (via ABC, who engages in daily, early-morning information huddles with the Obama “White House”) from ACORN itself, it’s announced that ACORN is, uhh, going to “investigate” ACORN, with this group of Lefties-at-hire to go onto the media-stage and do the “Let’s Investigate” routine:
In a press release, ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis says, that as “a result of the indefensible action of a handful of our employees,” the group will immediately stop accepting anyone into ACORN office for service programs, will conduct in-service training of staff, and begin an audit “to review all of the systems and processes called into question by the videos,” to be conducted by the group’s Independent Advisory Council.
The Council includes many prominent Democrats, including the man who helped President Obama Transition Team, John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress; former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend; Andrew Stern, International President of the Service Employees International Union; and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Henry Cisneros.
The startling hoist of reactions in the last week from ACORN about it’s own organization: first it was denial (“…nothing wrong”), then another day later employees were fired (only those captured so engaged in ACORN-ish crime and embracing of such crime as to project ideas, they were fired but ACORN avoided saying there was anything wrong), then, immediately afterward, ACORN announced they “were shocked, this is so unusual” to more ACORN crime-and-ghastly behaviors captured on more video, then — all this in only a few days — an investigation, an investigation now but with a stacked panel of “investigators.”
Hold the laughter briefly and read this:
ACORN will work with its advisory council, which includes prominent supporters of President Barack Obama, such as John Podesta, president of the nonprofit Center for American Progress, and Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union, to name an independent auditor and investigator, ACORN chief executive Bertha Lewis said in a written statement.
Barack Obama, after spending years “community organizing” with and for ACORN (legal advisor, conducted “training workshops” and coached ACORN employees), from his newfound position — now that Obama’s in the Presidency — and now that ACORN has been captured on tape and on video engaged in and urging on the crime that they do, now “the Obama ‘White House'” doesn’t know, so Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says. They are, so Gibbs says at present, they are, uhh, they don’t know what’s-what, who…likely we’ll start hearing very soon that it’s all “a distraction,” this “ACORN stuff…”
Gibbs said he was not sure whether the president would ask Democrats to pull back from any campaign-year collaboration with the group.
“I don’t know that I’ve had any discussion with him about that,” Gibbs said.
From biggovernment.com, the video reports that decidedly exposed ACORN engaged in and willingly offering to assist crime, including, horribly, child prostitution and illegal immigration; one ACORN employee also captured on-tape admitting to having committed murder.
