One wonders what the eventual endpoint will be on AcornGate. Like the Watergate scandal, the coverage has been very low key but the reactions have been pretty amazing. The real issue is where will it lead and just how deep is the administration into Acorn and Acorn Graft?

In addition to recieving massive amounts of Government money, The Obama campaign hired Acorn to do campaign activities for them. That seems rather odd that a group that is supposedly non political can campaign under contract for someone?

Old Dodd, the conneticut turd in Washington, has deep ties to so many corrupt dealings its unbelieveable. Yet congress ignores that and instead bangs a old boy from South Carolina for calling O'Phoney a liar while Rangle writes tax laws and doesnt pay his.

The Doddster....Look at this...

From tiny ACORNs, mighty hypocrites are born

As you may have read, last night the U.S. Senate voted to defund ACORN in the wake of their "whores R us" scandal.

Many of the 83 Senators who voted "yea" are going now to desperately sweep all their close ties with the troubled activist group into the 'ole memory hole. But one Senator is going to have an especially hard time doing this.

Chris Dodd

Seems the Senator is warmly praised on ACORN's own website!

Sen. Dodd Meets with ACORN to Discuss Foreclosure Prevention

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – U.S. Senator Chris Dodd and Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch met to discuss strategies for fighting foreclosures March 28 at the home of ACORN member Donna Pearce.Pearce thanked the senator for his support of NeighborWorks, which helps provide funding for foreclosure counseling services. She was able to work out a loan modification to save her home from foreclosure by working with ACORN’s housing counselors."I think we're all just a bit jealous of the great work ACORN does," said Finch. He later added, “We should make sure everyone who signs that paperwork to buy a house has ACORN’s number tattooed on their wrist.”Dodd recently unveiled draft legislation, the “HOPE for Homeowners Act of 2008,” that would set up a mortgage refinancing division of the Federal Housing Administration to aid homeowners overwhelmed with unaffordable mortgages. Similar legislation has also been drafted by House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank.“This proposal will help provide much-needed relief for people on the brink of foreclosure,” Dodd said. The bill, which extends only to owner-occupied houses, is aimed at “keeping families in their houses and neighborhoods financially stable.”

Now that Dodd is running behind in his bid for re-election, time to try and make people forget he tried to divert tens of billions of dollars from the TARP bailout to fund ACORN and their allies, even if the taxpayers lost money on TARP . Thankfully, this was headed off, but Dodd got a smaller slush fund tacked on the earlier mortgage relief bill.

Chris Dodd's various bailouts haven't done much for the overall economy,but's he's made sure they've done plenty for ACORN.

And now, time to cut them loose. Like they haven't been a rogue outfit for years. Please.

Yeah, but who's going to appoint an independent counsel? Holder? Don't hold your breathe.

B.O. is a scumbag.

Holder has tracks back to Acorn as do most of the Czars and a good bit of the cabinet...that is the part that is most interesting and frightening.

This has the potential to take out a lot of people.

It does, but who has the muscle to see it through?

Aren't acorns supposed to fall out?Actually, they are falling out right now. My daughter found one at the park today. She asked me if she could smash it. I laughed on the inside at that question.

I don't know. So many politicians on every conceivable issue have their hands and legs in so many questionable organizations out there it's tough to really see this taking out anybody significant.

But who knows. I'm just glad ACORN is getting the fuck out before the Census rolls around. As if the Obama administration won't have to deal with enough ridiculousness with ACORN making headlines...

Yeah, it's pretty crappy that the President might have to explain why he was so deeply tied in to an organization that turned out to be ripe with fraud and criminal activity.

Oh, wait, no it isn't.
