ACORN Whistleblowers’ Complaint Available Here

We have obtained a copy of the complaint filed by the ACORN whistleblowers known as the ACORN 8.

The ACORN 8 was founded by expelled ACORN national board members Marcel Reid and Karen Inman. They have asked U.S. attorneys in several states to look into the nearly $1 million embezzlement that the founder’s brother perpetrated on the group and the eight-year-long coverup of that embezzlement.

They also want the authorities to probe the odd business practices of the nation’s leading community-based left-wing activist group. When Reid and Inman asked to look at the documents related to the embezzlement, ACORN said no and eventually forced them out.

The antics of the hyper-aggressive ACORN, which has taken in at least $126.4 million in donations and tax dollars since 1993 yet owes millions of dollars in back taxes, have long cried out for a probe under federal racketeering laws. Now one might actually happen (if the Obama administration wants it to).

The complaint is available here. (PDF)

I wrote about the embezzlement in the American Spectator. I also wrote an in-depth profile of ACORN that appeared in the November issue of Foundation Watch. (Jeremy Lott and I co-wrote a profile of ACORN that focuses on labor issues in the November issue of Labor Watch.)

  1. I do not support any of our tax dollors being given to any part of Acron this is a corrupt orgzanition. I feel this group has caused problems to incured interfering with the presidental election by buying votes. Obama has supported and defended this group and to me that tells me what kind of person is trying to screw up this country.
