For several years, a few members of Congress (oddly enough at one time even consummate leftist Rep. John Conyers D-MI) have been attempting to investigate ACORN. They have been unsuccessful. This is, by some very viable accounts, due to the fact that Dictator-in-Chief Obama has a long and lucrative relationship with the group that is now being proved to be a wide-reaching criminal enterprise. The Democrat-run Congress has ordered (by Obama fiat perhaps?) that NO federal investigation of ACORN will be allowed to proceed.
Recently however, no fewer that three video tapes have now emerged showing ACORN workers in several states helping a couple--who are pretending to be a prostitute and her pimp--to buy a house to be used as a brothel. Included on the tapes are the “pimp and prostitute” advising ACORN workers that they plan to open the brothel and bring in at least a dozen underage Salvadorian girls as virtual sex slaves. ACORN employees are then shown to be more than happy to help them and are also shown advising the couple as to how to lie to the IRS. One ACORN staffer is shown saying: "Don't get caught. It's against the law what you're doing and there's a chance you'll get caught." Virtually any illegal behaviors and practices, including but not limited to scamming the system, now appears to be part and parcel to ACORN.
The independent investigative filmmaker who posed as the “pimp” has advised that more videos were made with even more ACORN employees shown willing to help him and his “prostitute” partner scam the system. ACORN--which is already under indictment for voter registration fraud in at least 14 US states--has already received at least $53Millions in US taxpayer monies from the US Government and have been allocated (under Obama’s stimulus bill) another $8.5Billions!
If you have forgotten Obama’s very close past and present ties to the multi-tentacled criminal ACORN, here’s a very brief refresher course--video tape references appear below):
1. Obama worked as an attorney for ACORN in Chicago
2. Obama worked as a “leadership trainer” for ACORN’s community organizing
3. Obama said ACORN and its friends will shape his presidential agenda
As was the case with Obama’s US Attorney General Eric Holder reversing the conviction for overt voter intimidation by New Black Panthers--who supported Barack Obama in his presidential run--the logical question is “Will Obama’s Department of Justice block any and all investigations of ACORN?”
Both ACORN and the New Black Panthers worked almost tirelessly to “elect” Obama--by any means necessary. We-the-People must not allow the Obama Administration to continue to obstruct justice. Call (202-224-3121), email or snail-mail your Senators and Congress people. Tell them that if they do not push for and succeed in implementing a real and true investigation of this criminal group, you will also work tirelessly--to “unelect” them.
