Why Isn't CNN Reporting The Recent Acorn Scandal?

(If you aren't aware of the recent bombshells here's a video summary and more videos of more acorn offices are set to be released today and in the coming days.)

Along with NBC, CBS and ABC? why why why?

@Davidylan,

Thank God for the history feature. So whether you like am, whether you no like am, the thing be say you go still dey read my points. Here it is again.

@Davidylan,

You are looking ridiculous with your continued attempt to salvage a political point from what is clearly a corruption case. The accusations against ACORN goes waaaaaaaaaaay back. It's been apologists like you, smart attorneys like Obama and activist judges that have kept them from being investigated thoroughly. Now that this video is out, we will hopefully see them held accountable.

This year’s election is shaping up to be one of the most controversial in history. Just this week, a federal judge ordered Ohio’s top elections official to verify the identity of newly registered voters by matching them with other government documents. The very next day a 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals set aside the federal judge’s order on verifying registrations.

Further igniting the voter fraud/voter registration debate was the news that a national community organizing group is being investigated in at least 14 states and several swing states for massive irregularities. This news would make headlines anyway, but what made it worse was that Barack Obama was a key player in this organization, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, in the past. Obama trained its local leaders, represented the organization in court, and worked to funnel funds to the organization. The Obama campaign also donated $800,000 this year to an ACORN affiliate.

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a community-based organization that advocates for low and moderate income families founded in 1970 by Wade Rathke and Gary Delgado. Rathke, one of the most powerful hard-Left activists in America, is a former member of a radical 1960s group, the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). The Weathermen terrorist group split off from the SDS in 1969. ACORN says its priorities include better housing and wages for the poor, more community development investment from banks and governments, and better public schools.

Although the organization prides itself for its registration efforts, it also has a long history of scandal. In the state of Missouri in 1986, 12 ACORN members were convicted of voter fraud. But that case was not an isolated incident in the state. In December 2004, in St. Louis, six volunteers pleaded guilty of dozens of election law violations for filling out registration cards with names of dead people and other bogus information. Authorities launched an earlier investigation after noticing that among the new voters was longtime St. Louis alderman Albert “Red” Villa, who died in 1990. The volunteers worked for “Operation Big Vote” — a branch of ACORN — in St. Louis.

On February 10, 2005, Nonaresa Montgomery, a paid worker who ran Operation Big Vote during the run-up to the 2001 mayoral primary, was found guilty of vote fraud. Montgomery hired about 30 workers to do fraudulent voter-registration canvassing. Instead of knocking on doors, the volunteers sat at a St. Louis fast food restaurant and wrote out names and information from an outdated voter list. About 1,500 fraudulent voter registration cards were turned in.

In October 2006, St. Louis election officials discovered at least 1,492 “potentially fraudulent” voter registration cards. They were all turned in by ACORN volunteers.

In November 2006, 20,000 to 35,000 questionable voter registration forms were turned in by ACORN officials in Missouri. Most all of these were from St. Louis and Kansas City areas, where ACORN purportedly sought to help empower the “disenfranchised” minorities living there. But the ACORN workers weren’t just told to register new voters. The workers admitted on camera that they were coached to tell registrants to vote for Democrat Claire McCaskill.

In 2007, in Kansas City, Missouri, four ACORN employees were indicted for fraud. In April of this year eight ACORN employees in St. Louis city and county pleaded guilty to federal election fraud for submitting bogus voter registrations.

And, that was just Missouri.

This year there have been several accusations of fraud against ACORN. Over a dozen states are investigating the organization already. Here is a complete list of the ongoing investigations:

North Carolina — State Board of Elections officials have found at least 100 voter registration forms with the same names over and over again. The forms were turned in by ACORN. Officials sent about 30 applications to the state Board of Elections for possible fraud investigation.

Ohio — The New York Post reported that a Cleveland man said he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times. The complaints have sparked an investigation by election officials into the organization, whose political wing has supported Barack Obama. Witnesses have already been subpoenaed to testify against the organization.

Nevada — Authorities raided the headquarters of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now on Tuesday October 7, 2008, after a month-long investigation. The fraudulent voter registrations included the Dallas Cowboys starting line-up.

Indiana — More than 2,000 voter registration forms filed in northern Indiana’s Lake County filled out by ACORN employees turned out to be bogus. Officials also stopped processing a stack of about 5,000 applications delivered just before the October 6 registration deadline after the first 2,100 turned out to be phony.

Connecticut — Officials are looking into a complaint alleging ACORN submitted fraudulent voter registration cards in Bridgeport. In one instance, an official said a card was filled out for a 7-year-old girl, whose age was listed as 27. 8,000 cards were submitted in Bridgeport.

Missouri — The Kansas City election board is reporting 100 duplicate applications and 280 with fake information. Acorn officials agreed that at least 4% of their registrations were bogus. Governor Matt Blunt condemned the attempts by ACORN to commit voter fraud.

Pennsylvania — Officials are investigating suspicious or incomplete registration forms submitted by ACORN. 252,595 voter registrations were submitted in Philadelphia. Remarkably, 57,435 were rejected — most of them submitted by ACORN.

Wisconsin — In Milwaukee ACORN improperly used felons as registration workers. Additionally, its workers are among 49 cases of bad registrations sent to authorities for possible charges, as first reported by the Journal Sentinel.

Florida — The Pinellas County Elections supervisor says his office has received around 35 voter registrations that appear to be bogus. There is also a question of 30,000 felons who are registered illegally to vote. Their connections with ACORN are not yet clear.

Texas — Of the 30,000 registration cards ACORN turned in, Harris County tax assessor Paul Bettencourt says just more than 20,000 are valid. And just look at some of the places ACORN was finding those voters. A church just next door is the address for around 150 people. More than 250 people claim a homeless outreach center as their home address. Some listed a county mental health facility as their home and one person even wrote down the Harris County jail at the sheriff’s office.

Michigan — ACORN in Detroit is being investigated after several municipal clerks reported fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications coming through. The clerk interviewed said the fraud appears to be widespread.

New Mexico – The Bernalillo County clerk has notified prosecutors that some 1,100 fraudulent voter registration cards were turned in by ACORN.

That’s not all. So far this year at least 14 states have started investigations against ACORN. Talk about a culture of corruption. It is so bad that Representatives of Congress have asked for the Justice Department to investigate, and GOP presidential candidate John McCain is bringing it up in his stump speeches. The Obama camp is stealthily altering its “Fight the Smears” website to distance themselves from the organization — quite a challenge considering how close their candidate’s association has been with the group.

The liberal vs. conservative, voter fraud vs. voter intimidation debate will no doubt continue after this election. But this year, with the assistance of scandal-plagued ACORN, it appears that — so far — the voter fraud side is winning.

Davidylan,

This same ACORN is under investigation in several States for voter regristration fraud and all manner of ills. Many politicians including some Democrats with conscience (endangered species), have called attention to the fraud that ACORN is but more powerful politicians have supressed a full scale investigation into their activities. This video hopefully will trigger a national investigation that they have shied away from for obvious reasons. ACORN is corrupt, plain and simple.

if fox really has those videos, why are they withholding them?

do they need more editing? ask baby, ask these guestions.

and i just watched rick now and he is still wondering why they wont honor his invitation, and yet fox will be the first to say others don cover the news. when the people who shot the video are yet to honor an invitation.

the loosers are the honest acorn workers who have been disparaged. and also those who really benefit from honest acorn services. they have been deprived. and they are mainly poor people.

My bad . . . I meant to type just one "tens" of offices across the country. If I heard correctly they said they have more tapes but will not release them just yet. Time will tell us umistakably if this is a culture at acorn or simply a handful of outliers.

Employees who have since been promptly fired. I'd be worried if the organisation had tried to defend them. Every organisation has problems with a handful of employees, we havent demonised those organisations as much as we've demonised ACORN.

The fact that tens and tens of ACORN offices turned them away is more evidence that this is NOT a systemic ACORN problem but restricted to a few bad apples. Perhaps there are far more ACORN offices who would rather not have anything to do with prostitutes and pimps.

Its amazing how everyone is only interested in seeing the bucket as half empty.

No, it simply means we shld be skeptical with the new found vigour to be "outraged" about anything ACORN considering most of us didnt even know they existed until last year and neither did we care.

This was not an incendiary scandal at all . . . this was nothing but fraudulent gotcha-journalism at its worst. The employees of ACORN involved in the videos have been fired and the authorities are taking it seriously.

Of course the video guys forgot to tell you that they also went to a lot more ACORN offices and were not attended to, they just cobbled together edited videos from 3 offices and suddenly heavens are falling?

ACORN has been involved in worse before . . . but like pres_elect said before . . . no one cared because Obama wasnt president.

Political expediency! The senate voted to cut off their funding just now? Why now over 4 videos? Was it not the same senate that approved fed funds for the last 15 yrs? where there NO SCANDALS all that time?

The senate response is more than meets the eye, i am not commenting on the videos just yet because i am more interested in how politicians are playing to their base with just about anything they can grab at. Tim Pawlenty came out yesterday with a press release ordering Minnesota to cut off all funding to ACORN . . . the only problem is that the state of Minn does not fund ACORN at all.

I'm uninterested in political hypocrisy.

 Once again - does it really matter who or where the videos came from? Why have you refused to address the contents of the video? They are irrelevant? so irrelevant the Senate voted to cut their funding. So irrelevant the FBI is involved. So irrelevant Acorn has launched their own investigation & fired the employees. Yep definitely irrelevant.

no one is deflecting anything, you're just uninterested in seeing the issue from an angle that is not yours.

the videos themselves are irrelevant seeing as others have clearly pointed out they were made by affiliates of Fox news - hardly your idea of neutrality when it comes to ACORN. That is not to claim that their story is false though.

But the elephant in the room is this - would you even know what ACORN was if Jeb Bush was president?

pres-elect,

  You're right news does have to be verified, I totally agree with that. I don't agree when you say the videos "originated" with Fox. They came from those independent journos who went thru one Breitbat internet news site and then Fox jumped on it - for obvious reasons. This is the information age pres, it doesn't take 1 week to "verify" news anymore.

This is what I mean when I said you hardly address the issue directly but simply deflect and point somewhere else. The topic is about the recent scandal - not acorns history with the senate. I don't think you have even actually commented directly on the 5 videos.

and fine I will concede the $8 bill point, you are right and I am wrong. Now can we get back to the videos?

I believe the topic says "why is CNN not covering it" which they only started doing in the past 2 days when the story has been out for over a week.

@jesoul,

news item has to be verified b4 it is reported. the guys who did these videos were associated with fox news, they have done interviews with fox news anchors but have refused to talk to rick sanche of cnn. it is not easy for msnbc/nbc to verify any news item originating from fox news. and u know why.(and vice versa). but when they verified it, they talked about it too.

Watch the interview shown by CNN on this issue yesterday. Wolf Blitzer takes care of only headline news and they've shown the video 5 hours before Wolf Blitzer. FocKs news can never be any match to CNN. What have you to say about their reporter who got busted for lying against Obama?. I saw the clips on how she deliberately lied and claimed that Obama cursed the insurance companies. MSNBC used that opportunity to paint FOX news black.

CNN smears Democratic liberals calling Acorn a "liberal group"

September 16, 2009.

Acorn,a group with roots in Chicago that has been investigated before for massive voter fraud and phony voter registrations on behalf of President Obama during the Democratic primaries has run afoul of the law again as they have before.

This time they had a number of their workers caught on tape advising women in Baltimore and New York who were posing as prostitutes as part of a filmmakers sting, on how to get housing subsidies by  not revealing that they are prostitutes and what to say on the their applications to hide the fact that they were prostitutes.

The problem is that CNN had decided to refer to Acorn as a "liberal" group.  Lou Dobbs, ever the right wing sycophant, referred to them as " left wing".

When news of the behavior of the Acorn workers became public, the Senate voted 83-7 to cut off federal funds to Acorn. They were also roundly criticized  by Democrats supporting Hillary Clinton's candidacy during the primaries for phony voter registration on behalf of the Obama campaign.  Voter fraud has always been a problem for Acorn and they faced an indictment in Nevada for phony voter registration. Yet CNN not to mention the crack pot conservative blogs, try to associate the failings of Acorn with liberal phillopsophy as if there is any real connection.

To his credit, John Fund at the Wall Street Journal pointed out in his article that John Conyers, one of the most liberal Democrats in the House had tried to hold hearings into Acorn but found himself stymied by the House leadership, so while Acorn did have its defenders in congress at the time, it was hardly a result of liberalism but more bad judgment.

Exactly how Acorn is a "liberal" group no one on CNN said as they reported the story, but news media and politicians are always quick to play the guilt by association game if it suits their political ends,

As the Acorn story was being shown the words, "Acorn - Liberal group" were splashed across the screen on CNN, though politics seemed to play no part in an Acorn worker trying to help a prostitute and love-vendor get housing subsidies to set up a brothel.

Dobbs in his nightly show referred to them as "left wing" as if to try and forge a relationship between Acorn and groups like ThinkProgress or MoveOn.org.  Maybe CNN thinks there is a the connection between trying to help a love-vendor set up a brothel and Senator Russ Feingold one of the Democrats most liberal senators.

This again is why CNN and most of the mainstream news, especially cable, simply can't be trusted,   Unlike Fox who openly promotes conseravative agendas and makes no bones about it,  CNN is simply afraid of conservatives and are willing to attack liberals, not on ideological grounds which Fox does, but to make a buck and to try and attract whatever conservative viewership they can. In other words they are either patently incompetent or patently dishonest. Dobbs on the other hand, to his credit if not to his journalistic objectivity, also makes no bones about his right wing agenda and so you know what youre going to get which is always slanted news converage.

It is a failure both on the part of those reporting the story and their editors, that they allowed Acorn, a group that has been criticized as much by Democrats as anyone, as a "liberal " group without anything to support it. other than liberals and Democrats have been more supportive of government subsidies for housing for the poor than Republicans. The fact that Acorn was caught not applying the kind of standards Republicans routinely dont apply to things like going to war or spying on American citizens doesnt mean Acorn somehow reflects liberal philosophy but that is exactly the message Dobbs was sending, and CNN in general promoted.

The Brooklyn DA is investigating Acorn as well  he should and they are in possession of the video made by the filmmakers who recorded them. In the meantime, State Senator Bill Perkins, a Harlem Democrat has asked the state senate to put on hold a $10,000 grant he awarded Acorn until the DA probe is finished. The Census Bureau cut their ties with Acorn on Friday.

Its  not going to be long before real liberals cut their ties to CNN.

Abegi everyone should lay off ACORN, every organisation has its bad apples . . . it doesnt nullify the fact that the organisation has done a fantastic job. Its recieved close to $50m in Federal funds since 1994, if it were so bad how come Clinton and Bush continued to fund it with PERFECT SILENCE from the republican hypocrites now kicking?

All of a sudden Obama is in power and everyone is whining about ACORN? Yeah honest journalism my nice little fish.

Its been dead for a long time, you only seem to remember when some anti-obama "news" is not given prominent frontpage focus.

If honest journalism were alive no one would be accusing Obama of being an Indonesian muslim thug who happened to spend yrs sitting under a pastor while being a Kenyan citizen at the same time.

If honest journalism was alive we wouldnt think the healthcare bill is a "government take over of healthcare" or that Obama is out to kill your grandma or that death panels exist (even though the provision was added by a republican) or that taxes are going up . . .

If honest journalism were alive we wont have thousands marching in the streets accusing Obama of marxism, socialism and fascism in the same breath and yelling for their "country back".

If honest journalism were alive we wont accuse Obama of reckless spending when majority of that spending came from another administration anyway.

If honest journalism were alive Glenn Beck wouldnt have a job.

At best, the only news in this story is that this particular crackhead should have been properly vetted before being offered employment at Acorn.

Of course reputable news agencies like CNN see no new in this. . . . duh!. . . . cos there is no [i]fuckin[/i]g news in this!

Only tabloid TV like Fox News would cover this bollocks. You have to be seriously slow to ingest bollocks from Fox News on a daily basis. Reputable Republicans do not bother with that silly channel.
