ACORN Veterans Among Those Harassing Public Officials

Remember ACORN?

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2010 after a series of high-profile scandals involving undercover video investigations and allegations of voter fraud led to a loss of public and private support.

But ACORN’s former staffers and some if its chapters have found a new home within a left-leaning network of activists that includes the nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy and its sister organizations, Action for the Common Good and the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.

Two staffers of the Center for Popular Democracy were the women who shouted at Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., last Friday at a Senate elevator in a widely reported confrontation over his expected vote in favor of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, National Review columnist John Fund reported.

Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., are among senators who have been shouted down by anti-Kavanaugh protesters as they spoke to reporters during the final days of the heated confirmation process.

An article on the Center for Popular Democracy’s website about the “People’s Convention” in downtown Pittsburgh in July 2016 said the nonprofit progressive advocacy group was “trying to fill the vacuum left in the wake of ACORN’s demise in 2010.”

No surprise, but nice to see it confirmed. The two screaming clowns in the elevator should have been escorted out immediately.

ACORN never died, it just changed its name.

Finally we are shining light and exposing those mongols. Give their names,cities and towns where they live, employers. They must have a lot of vacation time to do these circuses. And, if employed, maybe their employers don't like to be tied to their lawless actions nor do their children and friends and their families.

Well, I take it off during my dining pleasure, but I have been covered with a red cap since the garment came out, along with a USA flag on my shirt or jacket. I have yet to be approached by anyone the objects. Oh, they are welcome to show their ass to me if they desire. But for their own sake, it would be best if they didn't touch my cap or enter my space.

The Republicans should get a group together. When they get harassed by a mob. They come out of the woodwork and start cracking heads.
