There's a general narrative I'm seeing on various message boards today that ACORN is engaging in organized voter fraud. Yeah, that ACORN, the one who ceased operations in the 2nd quarter of this year. Bizarre.

It's funny that Republicans are so sure of themselves this time around, yet they're also looking for a scapegoat in case the election doesn't go their way. What better than a scapegoat that doesn't even exist to be able to defend itself anymore!

since when are the wingnuts going to let pesky things like "facts" get in the way of a good (to them) story?

If they planned to shut down in March, how did they file Chapter 11 yesterday? http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-pn-acorn-bankruptcy-20101103,0,6346806.story

The same way that Musicmaker ceased operations in Jan 2001 but didn't actually turn the lights out until much later that year. The books have to be closed, capital assets accounted for, debts paid or renegotiated, etc.

BTW ACORN didn't file chapter 11 (restructuring), they filed chapter 7 (liquidation).
