The Acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree
Everybody’s favorite leftwing organization is suspending any counseling of clients until an audit can be done of their processes.
ACORN, calling the actions of some of its employees “indefensible,” has suspended advising new clients as part of its service programs and is setting up an independent review to see what happened.
ACORN chief executive Bertha Lewis said in a written statement that she was “ordering a halt to any new intakes into ACORN’s service programs until completion of an independent review.”
The actions were taken, she said, “as a result of indefensible action of a handful of our employees.”
Videos of ACORN workers giving tax advice to people posing as prostitutes and other revelations have led to growing criticism of the organization in recent days.
Well, at least they’re done blaming Fox News. Somehow I don’t suspect they’ve seen the light, however.
In her statement, Lewis said “no new intakes will be accepted into ACORN’s offices for service programs, effective immediately.”
She also said the group would begin “immediate in-service training for all frontline staff.”
How much do you want to bet that “in-service training” will be, “How do you spot a right-winger taking advantage of our stupidity?” Someone should tell them to save the effort and the money. As comedian Ron White likes to say, “You can’t fix stupid.”
They better hurry up the training. I received this press release from ACORN today:
