If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

When Will the Democratic Dominated Congress Investigate ACORN?

In today's Washington Examiner editorial, they ask the question "When Will Congress Investigate ACORN? My answer? Never. Not as long as Nancy Pelosi or anyone else in the Democratic Party is Speaker of the House. Because, the revelations that are now surfacing across the country about this politically corrupt organization were founded and funded to benefit the Democratic Party. So, why should they investigate ACORN...if they did, the trail might just end up in a famous Pennsylvania Avenue, WashDC address. That would be catastrophic for the left.

The newest corruption exposed is from the states of Louisiana and Oklahoma.
In the former, the local ACORN Housing Corp. office received contracts worth a combined $625,000 from the City of New Orleans for repairing existing low-income housing and developing new units in poor neighborhoods. The contracts were paid for with funds from federal Community Development Block Grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. An investigation by the Pelican Institute think tank of New Orleans, however, found that no work was actually performed to fulfill the contracts...The office address listed on the contracts for ACORN turned out to be a vacant lot, although new plumbing connections indicated a trailer had recently been located on the site.

Then, there's the abandoned office in Oklahoma where computer's that were left behind in,
Oklahoma City, documents found in a recently vacated ACORN office included a detailed memo titled "Power Plan" for a five-year effort to elect supportive legislators and transform Oklahoma to a progressive state "in the way it was 100 years ago." The man in charge of the office left town without paying back rent or utility bills, according to OklahmaWatchdog.org. Also found in the documents was a script for a Houston ACORN-directed recruiting campaign for "hiring Outreach Workers to remind people to get out and vote for Barack Obama in the upcoming election." As a tax-exempt nonprofit, ACORN is barred from participating in partisan election activities, and its national spokesmen have insisted throughout the 2008 presidential race that their organization was not working to elect Obama.

That the Houston, TX office of ACORN was circumventing election law in order to successfully elect Mr. Obama to this nation's highest office would be devastating to Democrats...but then, that assumes that Major Media would actually report this. The main reason that Major Media ISN'T is because they have become so heavily invested in assuring Mr. Obamas success, that they won't report on issues that are extraordinarily important to this nation. One party's attempting to circumvent the democratic process...think about, ACORN has been trying to register fraudulent voters (i.e. they don't exist in reality)...
