Ben Smith at Politico reports the details on the folding of the national ACORN offices.
The ACORN Association Board met on Sunday March 21 and approved a set of steps to responsibly manage the process of bringing its operations to a close over the coming months. These include:
* Closing ACORN’s remaining state affiliates and field offices by April 1st; and
* Developing a plan to resolve all outstanding debts, obligations and other issues.
Perspective: So What? As I noted a couple days ago, the re-branding of the strongest chapters is well under way, and nothing is being buried but the name. While it's a superficial victory - at best - what it really does in plunges ACORN into a jungle warfare-type scenario. Cover, conceal and snipe when you have the tactical advantage. A hollow for Conservatives. And of course, funds are once again flowing so operations will continue as usual.
