Well, what else can I call this cabal? Hats off to Glenn Beck. Had I not seen the Washington Times today and the article about his commentary, I never would have thought to examine the clown collection that is the Advisory Board for ACORN. After googling the board, I went to the Political Inquirer to get a brief sketch of this bunch. Now we know from where some of the ACORN bile originated. I'll highlight a few; the recitation of their names will conjure up unpleasant memories.
First, there's John Posdesta. He runs the Center for American Progress, at the behest of George Soros. He also headed up Obama's transition team, which is more evidence of the cozy relationship between Obama and ACORN.
Then we have Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. She also is on the board of Center for American Progress. In 1996, she gave an award to Patricia Jessamy, who today as Baltimore's top prosecuter, is trying to prosecute Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe for exposing Baltimore ACORN as a brothel advisory service. I tell you, Ms KKT has lots and lots of "advisory experience" under her belt! In July 2003, Cardinal McCarrick (then archbishop of Washington) called her and a whole host of dissident Catholics to advise him on the future of the Church. We wrote a letter to His Emminence; that point was the seventh point in our letter. Perhaps that partially explains his disregard for Canon 915 and other strange propensities.
Moving along, we see Henry Cisneros. He was Clinton's HUD Secretary. He pled guilty to lying to the FBI during his background check. Did ACORN submit him to a background check?
This collection of undesirables gives new depth of meaning to the term "garbage in, garbage out".
