Why the GOP Is Out to Get ACORN

Posted by MEC on September 28, 2009

The GOP assault on ACORN didn’t begin with the “sting” operation that yielded a doctored videotape purporting to show an ACORN employee counseling a prostitute and her pimp on how to launder their income. (The reality is that the employee reported the couple to the police.)

Justin Jason Leopold reminds us that

ACORN was at the center of the so-called “prosecutor-gate” scandal, when the Bush administration pressured US attorneys to bring indictments over the grassroots group’s voter-registration drives, then fired some prosecutors who resisted what they viewed as a partisan strategy not supported by solid evidence.

The GOP is out to destroy ACORN because ACORN’s voter registration drives bring lots of people to the voting booths who won’t vote for Republicans.
