The Beginning of the End for ACORN

According to activist filmmaker James O’Keefe’s recently released video tapes, taxpayer supported ACORN offices in Baltimore, MD and Washington D.C. were more than willing to accommodate a pimp and his prostitute in their plans for business expansion. Their plans included the purchase of housing and the importation of under aged illegal immigrant girls from El Salvador, all for the expressed purpose of establishing a criminal enterprise—prostitution.  


With the public disclosure of these allegations and others dealing with voter fraud and corruption, Congress and the Justice Department should immediately open investigations into ACORN and its criminal activities. The Democratic Party and the Obama administration should also reevaluate their close ties to ACORN.


I have a sense that America is paying very close attention to these allegations and where they could lead. Come 2010 and 2012, American voters will be reevaluating their support for a Democratic controlled Congress and White House. With current voter sentiment reaching a crescendo of anger and discontent, that outcome is not in doubt. I predict double digit Democratic congressional loses in 2010—and the ousting of a one term President in 2012.
