Bombshell ACORN legal memo confirms depths of legal troubles

Matthew Vadum, who has performed yeoman's work on the sordid gang called ACORN, today revealed a bombshell memo written by ACORN's lawyers little more than 15 months ago. The attorneys instructed ACORN to begin cleaning up its massive mess or "face certain catastrophe". What did ACORN do instead?

It chose to do nothing.

The advice from Elizabeth Kingsley of Harmon, Curran, Spielberg Eisenberg LLP came in the form of an eerily prophetic legal memo to ACORN dated June 19, 2008, the day before ACORN’s national board fired disgraced founder Wade Rathke.

The memo is a kind of Holy Grail for ACORN researchers. One source of mine keeps a copy in a safety deposit box. I’ve lost track of how many people have asked me over the last year if I knew how to get ahold of it. One source told me that there are many people who would “kill” to gain possession of it. This is a bit of an exaggeration perhaps, but not much.

Having read this categorically damning memo, I now understand what all the fuss is about.

Full story on the ACORN memo is at American Spectator, here.
