The Mighty Oak Has Fallen….Acorn Closes It’s Doors

Lots going on in Varkonyland right now so will be brief, but I just had to post about the demise of Acorn.

Every once in a while, the bad guys get caught in their own web. And although I do not approve of the entrapment that was used to bring Acorn down, I’m glad they are finished…well, kind of finished.

As reported by the AP, two of their largest affiliates, New York and California, have changed their names and are still operating. But by and large, local chapters and field offices have closed for good. We will shed no tears at their passing. Hopefully, legitimate community organizations will take their place.

And while we’re on the subject, lest we have short memories, it would be good to be reminded who ran the Acorn field operation here in the Lehigh Valley in its heyday: That would be Siobhan Bennett.

    Tears?

    For outright criminals (my opinion)?

    Rather unlikely here.

    Rolf,

    No tears here, either…

    Pam –

    I have no doubt that if Acorn is actually closing, a replacement has already been established and the Democrats are already funding it with our tax dollars.
