The mysterious disappearance of ACORN boss Steve Kest

Steve Kest, who was executive director of the organized crime syndicate ACORN, became a senior fellow at John Podesta’s Center for American Progress Action Fund last year.

Kest joined self-described “communist” Van Jones who is also a senior fellow at CAP Action Fund. In the above photo Kest is shown at left beside Podesta at a 2005 CAP event.

Kest participated in the coverup of a million-dollar embezzlement at ACORN perpetrated by Dale Rathke, brother of disgraced ACORN founder Wade Rathke.

Strangely, references to Kest’s appointment have disappeared from CAP’s websites. I sent several emails requesting more information and CAP ignored the requests.

A November 10, 2010, notice on CAP’s website acknowledged Kest’s appointment:
So where did Kest go? His name has disappeared from CAP’s “Experts” page.

Weird, isn’t it?
