    CHICAGO — The once mighty community activist group ACORN announced Monday it is folding amid falling revenues — six months after video footage emerged showing some of its workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    Easier to continue sucking away Conservative tax dollars under a new name. Crap by any other name still stinks.

    They talked about this in length over on Big Government where Acorn was busted. Acorn has essentially broken up and now is not a singular headed national organization. But now 20 or so individual organizations locally run holding the same principals as it once did. All with different names, but still the same people heading each office. This way if there is a problem in one office, the rest can legally say they have nothing to do with them and wont face any repercussions. Their main office headed by B. Lewis is going broke because of the whole mess they found them selves in. And two branchs have locked their doors including the first one that was busted.

    The one in St Louis announced its closing last week, but said everything would be handled by the Chicago office. Then this announcement.

    It's just another dodge by the slime.
