John Atlas from the Housing Institute pointed out that the reason the trumped up charges against ACORN worked is that Democratic supporters were so quick to abandon them. He’s right.
Because the right wing supports the team NO MATTER WHAT. ACORN is an organization that’s done an incredible amount of good on housing for the poor and were the most effective voter registration machine around.
We let them die. They didn’t do anything wrong, but because the right wing attacks kicked in and were overwhelming, the Democratic party abandoned one of our most important allies.
Nice work, guys!
