Another tale of denial about ties to a thugocracy


First, columnist Michael Barone labeled the Barack Obama-ACORN coalition a thugocracy, now comes Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund to shine even more light on the alliance Obama would rather you not probe too closely.

Fund’s column reveals the court testimony of a former ACORN member to show not only the organization’s many links to Obama but also its strong-arm tactics.

Does this excerpt from the column have a familiar ring here in Southern Nevada?:

“Acorn insists it operates with strict quality controls, turning in, as required by law, all registration forms ‘even if the name on them was Donald Duck,’ as Wade Rathke told me two years ago. Acorn whistleblowers tell a different story.”
