Silky Pony and Maxine Waters at ACORN convention

I mentioned the Consumer Rights League’s whistleblower report on ACORN’s shady activities last week. Not a peep about it from anyone in Congress. Via reader William Amos comes news of the voter fraud-perpetuating, mortgage racketeering group’s national convention today. Headlining the event: John Edwards and Chavista Maxine Waters, with ACORN’s chief calling for “regime change” and the requisite bashing of unscrupulous lenders:

About 2,000 members of ACORN, an advocacy group for low-income individuals, focused on getting out the vote this fall as they gathered for their national convention Sunday.

ACORN, or Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is the nation’s largest such group, with offices and 400,000 member families in 42 states.

ACORN is hosting its biennial national convention at Cobo Hall with workshops on the mortgage foreclosure crisis, voter registration, health care and other key issues affecting low-income families.

“It is time for a regime change in America,” said Maude Hurd, ACORN national president, to whistles and enthusiastic applause.

State by state, they told how they were effecting change in their respective communities — from sponsoring forums to lobbying for legislation — but all agreed more had to be done.

Your tax dollars at work.

The “Subprime Six” and defaulting Democrat Laura Richardson were unavailable for comment.
