"Democracy Now!" anchor Goodman, who makes a guest appearance in my book, Subversion Inc.: How Obama's ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers, claims in a Guardian (UK) column that the criminals of ACORN were set up.
"While Acorn was ultimately exonerated by a congressional investigation, the attack took its toll, and the organisation lost its funding and collapsed," she writes. [emphasis added]
In fact ACORN has never been exonerated by any congressional investigation. The House Oversight and Government Committee issued many reports harshly criticizing ACORN.
And even if the group had been cleared, just a few weeks ago ACORN was convicted in a massive voter fraud conspiracy in Nevada.
Both Alterman and Goodman are taking a cue from ACORN executive Nathan Henderson-James who last year urged those on the left to push the fairy tale that ACORN was done in not by its own criminality and corruption but by boogeymen such as Fox News and Andrew Breitbart.
Expect these lying leftists to continue pushing their dishonest storyline.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, Machiavellian pressure tactics of Saul Alinsky want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
