ACORN may be about to embark on a huge rebranding effort in order to reinvent itself...disgraced ACORN founder Wade Rathke has renamed ACORN International, which is ACORN's international consultancy....

Rathke is trying to dissociate the ACORN affiliate from the oceans of bad ink ACORN has received in the U.S. over the last year. The new name for the international affiliate is Community Organizations International. snip

"The brand is tarnished and he doesn't want to be associated with ACORN because of all the problems that he is, ironically, largely responsibly for," the Washington Times quoted me saying. "He just wants to keep up his community organizing without being burdened by the bad public relations."

The new name for the international affiliate is Community Organizations International.

Simple; they want new suckers to donate and keep themselves in the black.

They know most Americans, specifically the ones who fall for their liberal drivel, have an attention span of 2.5 nanoseconds. By the time the rebranding is done, those fools won't even remember there was an ACORN, or any controversy surronding the group, assuming they drug themselves away from American Idol long enough to know there was a controversy to begin with.
