The Scandal That Never Was
By ANTHONY DiMAGGIO
The massive attention surrounding ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is as indicative of Republican and media racism as it is their class prejudice. Much of this attention centers on John McCain’s attacks on the organization, which were voiced during the third Presidential debate. McCain warned viewers that ACORN, which has endorsed Obama, is “on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history,” and “may be destroying the fabric of democracy.” Those are pretty vigilant claims for someone with no evidence.
