View Full Version : Time to RICO ACORN

I've never been fond of the RICO Act of 1970.

The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act was supposedly designed to combat organized crime.

But it has been misused widely by politicians to go after political enemies.

Yet, if there were ever a time and target to use its sweeping powers, the time is now and the target is ACORN.

It has been two weeks since the shocking undercover video work of James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles was released to the world. Those videos reveal beyond any shadow of a doubt that ACORN is the very definition of a "corrupt organization." Furthermore, they demonstrated clearly that ACORN officials in several cities are more than willing to get involved in the most heinous kind of criminal activity up to and including murder and white slavery rings involving the exploitation of helpless underage foreign minors.

Nevertheless, since the astonishing sting operations were made public, no charges have been filed against ACORN, though lawsuits against O'Keefe and Giles have been filed by ACORN.

Last week, Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said any official investigations of ACORN by Congress might distract attention from more important issues like railroading socialized medicine down the throats of the American people and spending money faster and more recklessly than drunken sailors could ever imagine.
Gee, I wonder why?

Could it have anything to do with the fact that Reid needs ACORN's fraudulent voter registration program to have a fighting chance for re-election?

Larry Lomax, Nevada's Clark County registrar of voters, reported last year he saw "rampant fraud" in the 2,000 to 3,000 registrations ACORN turned in every week. He said 48 percent of them were "clearly fraudulent."
