acorn got barred from receiving grant funds without any court date or real trial. just a bunch of pissed of people, based on video obtained, who then drove their elected officials crazy. many people on the left said acorn was victim of a witch hunt. now kbr/haliburton is being forced to change their contract so that employees in the future can sue the company/take legal action, since the woman said she was gang raped, imprisoned, etc by kbr employees, and her contract with them prevented her from getting any real justice. now you have the 30 republicans voting against forcing contact stipulations, and getting called "defenders of gang rape", ( 30 GOP Senators Vote to Defend Gang Rape | Health and Wellness | AlterNet ) both of these companies were accused of bad things, had no trial, and lost $, reputation, and the way they can conduct their business. what do people think of this? personally it reminds of witch hunts and mccarthism and whoever gets a lot of loud people against them is going to suffer.
