Meet ACORN

Posted by Charles II on July 13, 2009

The Smirking Chimp hosted an article by Intrepid Liberal Journal and an associated podcast of an interview with Wade Rathke, who has been one of the prime movers behind ACORN. I have tried unsuccessfully to get ACORN to comment about Wade Rathke to answer criticisms of the handling of the firing of his brother Dale, who allegedly embezzled a lot of money from ACORN (but then repaid it). I’m mostly not happy because one gets the sense of poor board oversight and a blurring of functions between the board and the leadership, which are arcane topics for most people.

While he didn’t speak to governance issues, it was worth the listen to get a sense of the man. I commend it to you.
