    Like a virus it is dissolving and will return with new shiny names but they same progressive bullshit

    ACORN 'dissolved as a national structure'

    The embattled liberal group ACORN is in the process of dissolving its national structure, with state and local-chapters splitting off from the underfunded, controversial national group, an official close to the group confirmed.

    "ACORN has dissolved as a national structure of state organizations," said a senior official close to the group, who declined to be identified by name because of the fierce conservative attacks on the group that began when a conservative filmmaker caught some staffers of its tax advisory arms on tape appearing to offer advice on incorporating a prostitution business.

    The videos proved a rallying point for conservatives who had long accused the group of fomenting voting fraud. Though the videos did not produce criminal charges, they appear to have been fatal to the national organization.

    "Consistent with what the internal recommendations have been, each of the states are developing plans for reconstitution independence and self-sufficiency," said the official, citing ACORN's "diminished resources, damage to the brand, unprecedented attacks."

    The new organizations, he said "will be constituted under new banners and new bylaws and new governance," he said, consistent with the recommendations of an outside panel.

    Much of the group's strength lay in its local chapters in places like New York, which appear to be continuing to operate as normal. New York's City Hall News reported today that the local group there had re-emerged under the name "New York Communities for Change."

    UPDATE: A person familiar with the New York reorganization said the new group has a new board, including some relative outsiders, like an official at the union Workers United, Wilfredo Larancuent, as well as most of the old leadership.

    I suppose corrupt organizations are rather boring. There is absolutely no reason for us to be informed about them at all. It's not like they can take our tax money or anything.

    The Feds should never have been paying a group to promote voting to begin with.

    If its needed it should have come from private funds, not federal dollars, it takes no special instructions to register and vote, the very idea of teh group is a fraud.

    It'll also make it easier for Obama to distance himself from them.... now, it'll be harder to prove that he's lying when he claimed he doesn't know them.... like he didn't know much about Acorn during the election. That turned out to be total bullshit. Lying scum.

    There are "No" special groups or organizations should be getting federal funding period.
    The balance is wanked because everyone wanted to be a non profit special group. The corporates and rich run wild under the current laws and the poor gets moldy crumbs. I agree voting is a very simple process. If the poor and middle class are to damn lazy to get out and search out who and what they are voting for then they deserve what they get.

    Did you know that in States like NY, when you apply for food stamps a voter registration form is attached to the food stamp application?

    Yet somehow people claim there is a 'need' for a special government funded group to 'register voters'.

    FRAUD.
