The Acorn Doesn't Fall Far from the Tree

ACORN (the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now) has been kicked to the curb by its longtime political supporters after getting caught on some embarassing videos. It has lost funding in Congress and contracts with the Census and the IRS.

Former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger has been hired by ACORN to lead an independent inquiry. Whether he is able to rehabilitate the controversial organization remains to be seen.

Here in Cambridge we have a lot of acorn work this year for the street sweepers.
