ACORN Asks for $$$$ to “Help Us to Keep the Pressure on O’Keefe”
ACORN is now sending around a petition to have James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles prosecuted for “wiretapping” in California and Maryland. An accompanying letter to ACORN supporters asks not only for signatures, but for money:
Click here to fight back against the corporate paymasters and their attack dogs seeking to disrupt this work by getting CA and MD to investigate James O’Keefe’s allegedly illegal videotapes of ACORN employees.
The “click here” link goes to a donation page. According to TPMMuckraker:
In another version, Lewis asks supporters to “chip-in $52 to help us keep the pressure on O’Keefe and his corporate paymasters.” Whelan says “the donations will end up in the low thousands — a meaningful and gratifying show of support, but certainly not outweighing the damage done by O’Keefe’s video scam.”
How is giving money to ACORN going to help “keep the pressure on O’Keefe”? Is there a connection between ACORN and his criminal case that we should know about?
P.S. If there isn’t one already, there needs to be a petition to Eric Holder to investigate possible crimes stemming from ACORN employees’ repeated offers to help O’Keefe and Giles deceive the government concerning their purported child prostitution ring.
If you are aware of such a petition, tell me about it and I’ll link it. If you’re not, someone should create one.

After Obumbles is thrown out of office, this whole situation needs a Special Proscutor to go after Holder and anyone who abetted ACORN.PCD (1d8b6d) — 2/11/2010 @ 8:39 am
Speaking of Holder, the Justice Department IG states that he can not review the decision to not prosecute the panthers who were accused of voter intimidation in Philly.Have Blue (854a6e) — 2/11/2010 @ 9:09 am
A little cut N Paste can fix the message … Don’t forget to add your local Senator to the email list of those receiving the “message”SteveCan (a1a833) — 2/11/2010 @ 9:30 am

How do you wiretap the air?

Never doubt ACORN’S ability to shoot itself in the foot, repeatedly. All this will do is re – emphasize the vids that disgraced them, and so the rest of the country will be reminded all over again how corrupt and mendacious this organization has been since its inception.

What are they gonna do with this money? try to bribe some DA’s? This amounts to a declaration of “O’Keefe had no right to catch us doing bad things!”Icy Texan (a7ec3f) — 2/11/2010 @ 12:29 pm

So, you’re saying you support Blackwater because they’re just like ACORN and the city of San Francisco? Good to know, thanks.Stashiu3 (44da70) — 2/11/2010 @ 5:19 pm
