We somehow missed an excellent news report from CNN on the ACORN embezzlement scandal earlier this month. (I must have been too busy playing Super Obama World.) In the Nov. 13 report CNN reported that terminated ACORN national board member Karen Inman said it’s time to bring in “the sheriff” to investigate the group’s crooked financial dealings. (See previous blog post on Inman’s dismissal.)
Inman was dismissed from the ACORN board for daring to ask for financial records pertaining to the covered up embezzlement of close to $1 million by Dale Rathke, brother of ACORN founder Wade Rathke. CNN reports that ACORN has asked the law firm of Sidley Austin to look into whether ACORN exposed itself to legal liability in connection with the coverup.
Here’s the video clip from CNN:
We profiled ACORN in the current Foundation Watch and Labor Watch and I’ve written numerous articles in other media outlets on ACORN.
