In 2009, […]

Eric Holder Refuses to Investigate His Partners in Class Struggle at ACORN


Attorney General Eric Holder has made it abundantly clear he has absolutely no interest in investigating his radical friends at ACORN.
It may not matter much, Glenn Beck suggested on his TV show. That’s because ACORN documents found in a dumpster suggest ACORN is considering changing both its name and its legal structure in order to [...]
