NY ACORN head honcho Bertha Lewis plants one on NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Next time, get a room.
Big Nanny NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg loves the left-wing zealots at ACORN.
Anita MonCrief reports on the long love affair in the Hot Air Green Room:
Bloomberg’s relationship with ACORN spans a number of years and goes back to when Bertha Lewis, ACORN’s CEO and Chief Organizer, was the Executive Director of the New York ACORN. Though Lewis and Bloomberg have engaged in the occasional street theater, they have managed to push through lucrative deals including the highly controversial Atlantic Yards project. A deal so financially lucrative to ACORN that it earned Bloomberg a kiss on the lips.
And the New York Post editorial board today spotlights “Mike’s favorite thugs:”
The ongoing Senate circus in Albany is pure farce at its most absurd, but at one point this week, things turned downright ugly.
On Thursday, some 150 protestors — many of them from the thuggish far-left group ACORN — turned up outside the Senate chamber and actually assaulted members of the Republican faction.
The demonstrators nearly knocked to the floor Sen. James Alesi (of upstate Monroe County); they also spat in the face of his chief of staff, according to published reports.
Not only was this violence uncalled for, the ACORN crowd shouldn’t even have been there in the first place: The Senate lobby is a restricted area, and public protests are explicitly prohibited.
Caution: Big Government/welfare state bedfellows at work.
