    ...are they really shutting down or just changing their public face to escape the consequences of their actions? Will they still be around doing the same things with a new face and less tarnished reputation?

    Just like that furniture store that is always advertising their bankruptcy sale on TV. They always seem to return under a new name once the dust settles.

    ACORN isn't going anywhere. They will surface using another name with the same goals. Cheating and vote stuffing has paid off for them.

    I agree...as you could probably tell. I wonder how many people will actually fall for this crap.

    +1 to both. It won't be ACORN anymore, instead SEIU and others will do the same thing if not worse......

    These are footsoldiers for 0bama. There will be a name change and a logo change, but they'll be right back out there advising tax cheats and law evaders. Just like old times. These are Barry's peeps, he'll find some way of getting them money outta our pockets.

    Obama Restores Cash-Strapped ACORN's Funding As Reward For HealthCare Support
    By Matthew Vadum on 3.20.10 @ 9:17PM

    President Obama has quietly moved behind the scenes to restore full funding to the radical group ACORN, which was his former employer and legal client.

    In a move ignored by the media, OMB director Peter Orszag circulated a directive to federal agencies ordering them to begin funding ACORN again. ACORN is the hyperpartisan lead group in the Health Care for America Now (HCAN) coalition and has long supported a government takeover of the U.S. health care system.

    The fiscal floodgates will soon re-open for ACORN despite a congressional ban on funding the activist group that has long been a practitioner of election fraud.

    In a March 16 memo Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Peter Orszag ordered federal agencies to resume funding the group whose employees were caught on hidden camera videos last year condoning and encouraging a variety of crimes including child prostitution and tax evasion.

    The memo came a week after renegade federal judge Nina Gershon of the Eastern District of New York made permanent her temporary injunction prohibiting Congress from cutting off funding for ACORN. The memo also came despite the fact that the Department of Justice is planning to appeal Gershon's ruling and seek a stay pending appeal.

    ACORN is under indictment in Nevada for election fraud. Jury selection in set to begin in the summer in Las Vegas.

    I'm sure they're just changing their name. There's no way that organization is folding... too much love from Obama.

    They'll probably change the name to Walnut or something, but it's not gone.
