ACORN, The MSM, And States’ Attorneys General Cuomo and Brown
The buzz is that another ACORN undercover film will surface today as the expose of ACORN’s “culture” spreads from office to office.
BigGovernment.com will have whatever it is first, so keep checking for it.
With exposes now public from three different offices, the pressure should develop on states’ attorneys general to open investigations of these ACORN operations. Thus far nothing, not even from New York’s crusading superlawyer Andrew Cuomo.
If Cuomo doesn’t order an investigation after the tape of the ACORN Brooklyn office, expect his indifference to the activity there to be an issue in any future campaign of his. Of course, Cuomo was HUD Secretary, and thus has some history with ACORN. Maybe that’s what New York State Senator Steve Saland was referring to when he wrote Cuomo:
“It is troubling that ACORN, an organization deeply entrenched in promoting political candidates, is receiving member items from the same politicians who benefit from ACORN’s campaign assistance. To ignore the need for an investigation of these member items would be a gross injustice”
Andrew Cuomo is on the clock.
Similarly, if any of ACORN’s California offices get caught up in this, California Attorney General Jerry Brown will face a choice of ignoring the sleaze or doing his job and opening an investigation. CA’s AG is proud of his crime-fighting record, but ACORN’s operations will put him in a big box if their east coast employees have counterparts on the west coast. If he does nothing, expect that inaction to be part of the campaign for the Golden State’s governorship, already underway.
