ACORN Gets Heavy with Its Critics


As I noted a few days ago, the thoroughly corrupt activist group ACORN is threatening the ACORN 8, a reform group headed by Marcel Reid and Karen Inman, because it’s afraid of them and wants to shut them up. The group argues the ACORN 8 is violating ACORN’s intellectual property by using the word “ACORN” in its name.

It recently sent the ACORN 8 a “cease and desist” letter. Here is a PDF of the June 11 letter from ACORN lawyer Arthur Z. Schwartz of the New York City law firm of Schwartz, Lichten & Bright PC. Blogger Procrustes has some background information on the longtime activist lawyer.

Lying and threatening is standard operating procedure at ACORN. 

ACORN is also suing whistleblower Anita MonCrief to shut her up.
