Former Employee: ACORN Still Alive and Well
Former ACORN employee and whistleblower Anita Moncrief said ACORN is far from dead and is still “colluding” and “working with” the President Barack Obama's Department of Justice.
Moncrief appeared with Conservative commentator David Webb in a one-hour special about the “District of Corruption” movie on FOX News’ “Hannity.” She specifically discussed how community organizing groups on the left put pressure on institutions like banks to get them to relent to their “equal outcomes” agenda.
Moncrief said ACORN would help people report food stamps and other “under-the-table” incomes as income to get subprime mortgages that eventually caused the housing market to collapse.
“ACORN’s agenda is Obama’s agenda,” Moncrief said. “It has not gone away.”
She said people would come to work at ACORN idealistic but there was a top-down culture of corruption that encouraged employees to look the other way “for the greater good.”
“This is not one person, it is an entire culture,” Moncrief said.
Webb, who has been investigating ACORN for more than a decade, said groups like ACORN were able to flourish because of the legacy of Jimmy Carter and the extreme far-left. Webb said those on the left are obsessed with “equal outcomes.”
He said left-wing community organizing groups pushed lending institutions to lower standards to allow every American -- regardless of their qualifications -- to get mortgages.
“Nothing has changed,” Webb said.
Webb and Moncrief are featured in the “District of Corruption” movie that chronicles the culture of corruption and crony capitalism in Washington that the Obama administration has put on steroids.
“Look at the slums in Chicago that are still slums,” Webb said. “What has been the return on investment?”
The “District of Corruption” movie details how ACORN follows the teachings of Saul Alinksy of putting pressure on institutions to achieve liberal ends and notes the organization is largely dominated by blacks but its leaders have almost always been white.
