sing4peace BS: Spread the Truth About ACORN (732* d) RE: BS: Spread the Truth About ACORN 25 Sep 09

Some of us here in Rhode Island thought it pretty ironic that after Sean Hannity was bashing ACORN for allegations of criminal activity while receiving government funds - FOX news had the ex-mayor of Providence - Mr. Vincent "Buddy" Cianci as a "Great American" guest.

Mr. Cianci was convicted and sent to prison for his part in a corruption/extortion racket while he was receiving government funds as the sitting mayor of Providence. He was convicted on a prior occasion for having arranged for his chauffeur (a State Police officer) to kidnap and detain his (Cianci's) ex-wife's lover - tie him up, burn him with a cigarette, beat him with a fireplace log and urinate all over him.

Nice "Great American", eh?

BTW Buddy was re-elected by the people of Providence after the kidnapping charge resulted in a suspended sentence. Some people still consider him a "hero" and credit him with Providence's "Renaissance" and for making the "trains run on time" - not me.

With the ACORN situation as in any other, we have to see through "them" and "us" and get to the truth of things. A crook is a crook is a crook is a crook and oughta get called out... no matter which team they are on.

In my humble opinion,
