Michelle Malkin reminds us that last year the NY Times started to investigate Acorn, but Stephanie Strom, the reporter, dropped the story after receiving some rather unpleasant phone calls from the Obama campaign. (A short version is here). Perhaps the Times and other representatives of the old establishment media will finally return to the story.
Were I in the Lefty community-organizing community, and if I believed that America was a fundamentally unjust place, where the rich and the powerful tend to have their way and the poor tend to get the short end of the stick rather more here than elsewhere, I would have a rather large chip on my shoulder. That chip might lead me to feel entitled to bend or break the law, just as I had been taught to think that most rich people do. In short, I would not be surprised to find a great deal of corruption in Acorn and other like groups.
