All in all, ACORN got a fairer shake than the targets of Moore's works. As soon as I hear you react to Moore's work the way you do to O'Keefe's, I'll pay more attention.
"No doubt the film was edited to exagerate the whole thing",, those are your words, and you call that a "fair shake",,, you really have a warped sense of "fairness"...

No ACORN workers have been arrest or indicted,,, the information was only offered to O'keefe and his cronies,, are you inferring they are involved in criminal activity..
So, are the 11 current investigations also persecution?

The videos may be exagerated, but they are also essentially accurate.

Is your struggle to understand the distinction between two words that sound a little alike but mean different things limited to "fair shake" and "fairer shake", or do others give you trouble as well?

For instance, do you confuse "good" and "perfect"?

All you have to do is google whether any ACORN workers have been indicted. It isn't hard at all, and there are many pages showing that your post is false. Here is just one page.

Here is another.

Your contention is that Acorn had a bad apple, so we must SHUT THEM DOWN. By edict.

You brought in the comparison of ACORN to a MOB Kingpin,,, that's a smear..

I never said ACORN was perfect,, they are comprised of Thousands of employees from over 100 different Organizations

Good to see you admit the the videos "may be exagerated",, the video makers did it to make money,, no would have bought a video of ACORN showing the positive things they accomplish

Actually, I have done so.

And introducing Blackwater into this conversation is a little like mixing apples and volkswagens.
