This will make sure wingnuts never complain about ACORN, or anything ACORN-ish, ever again! Specifically, ACORN has been more or less destroyed, and now state and local affiliates will go off ‘n’ do their own thing — get that MOJO back! — just like the Western Pioneers of lore.
Does Andrew Breitbart have anything to whine about now, at all?
ACORN has dissolved as a national structure of state organizations,” said a senior official close to the group, who declined to be identified by name because of the fierce conservative attacks on the group that began when a conservative filmmaker caught some staffers of its tax advisory arms on tape appearing to offer advice on incorporating a prostitution business.
The videos proved a rallying point for conservatives who had long accused the group of fomenting voting fraud. Though the videos did not produce criminal charges, they appear to have been fatal to the national organization.
“Consistent with what the internal recomendations have been, each of the states are developing plans for reconstitution independence and self-sufficiency,” said the official, citing ACORN’s “diminished resources, damage to the brand, unprecedented attacks.”
Git out your hittin’ clubs, wingnuts: now you’ll have to beat the socio-commies one-by-one, for the next 100 years. It’s a worthy pursuit!
