I have been calling for the complete defunding of ACORN ever since their employees were arrested, indicted and sentenced for voter registration fraud in the 2008 general election. We now have evidence that ACORN has allegedly engaged other criminal activities, the same activities in multiple states…or interstate criminal activity.
Let me think for a minute. I believe that we have a law which covers this kind of criminal activity. Do you know what that law is? I’ll wait while you look it up on the internet.
Have you got it? If not then I’ll tell you, it’s the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) Act. We’ve had this law on the books the entire time ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform) has allegedly been involved in their criminal activities. In fact the law predates any wrong doing that ACORN may have been engaged in. And it is within the purview of the FBI to investigate those violations. I guess they must have been busy with something else or they never saw the television news reporting of those alleged illegal voter registration fraud cases in multiple states or read the newspaper articles about those cases. Guess they just didn’t put it together that ACORN was in most states and that those indictable violations of voter laws happened in multiple states at the same time. I wonder what they were doing.
It couldn’t be that the RICO is applicable to only mobsters or members of organized crime in Chicago could it? No, wait…ACORN is in Chicago so that can’t be it.
OUCH (Organized Unindicted Criminal Hooligans) of ACORN should be investigated by the FBI under the RICO Act to prove or disprove their involvement in interstate criminal activities.
It would appear that from a tiny bad ACORN a gigantic corrupt criminal organization has grown.
