ACORN in the news

Patterico laboriously details myths reported about ACORN by journos willing to fudge to protect that organization. And Founding Bloggers us that the Brooklyn D'A.'s refusal to file charges against the ACORN affiliate O'Keefe and Giles busted there, is not an accurate measure of ACORN's conduct.

"On Sept. 15, 2009, my office began an investigation into possible criminality on the part of three ACORN employees," Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said in a one-paragraph statement issued Monday afternoon.

Should anyone be surprised? The Brooklyn DA is a member of the ACORN/Working Families Party. That means he signed their pledge, and worked for their endorsement.

There are a lot of people in the press and law enforcement who want to keep the truth about ACORN from surfacing. Believe what you saw on the tapes.
