ACORN Follows Through On Threat To Obama And The Democrats

As we pointed out a few days ago in a post, Acorn had threatened to file a law suit against Andrew Breitbart, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles for exposing Acorn in the child prostitution and money laundering scandal that may very well be the death of Acorn. We reported that the threat was actually a plea for help to the Obama Administration and Democratic supporters. The threat was, in filing the suit, Acorn would be subjected to a grueling Discovery process that will no doubt lead to many more news headlines and possibly indictments of Acorn officials and supporters, many of whom could be Democratic Party leaders.

Well, it is no longer a threat. The filed the suit. FoxNews, Breitbart and a lot of Conservatives looking to shut down this corrupt organization for a long time are licking their chops at the thought of legal discovery of the group and it’s handlers.

With Acorn and it’s activist union wing, the SEIU, involved with many questionable actions, it is going to be interesting to see if and when the Obama Administration begins the cover-up. The justice department has already shut down many investigations without actually investigating. Will this happen in the Acorn case?

As FoxNews’ Greta Van Susteren put it on her blog:

By filing a lawsuit, ACORN just opened itself up for FULL DISCOVERY!! They are going to get hit with interrogatories, requests for production of documents, depositions etc. And who will get deposed? Just about everybody! And if discovery produces evidence of a crime? You can be sure that the evidence will be fed ex’d to the Justice Department!

Yes, ACORN will try and limit the scope of discovery to the issue of one party consent to taping…but discovery rules are really, really, really broad. I sure would hate to be rolling the dice on this one if I were ACORN and if I had something to hide!

By the way, what would have been my legal advice to ACORN if they were my client? I would have told them to lie low and just hope the heat passes and not to file suit….but they have done the opposite. They have just given 3 parties the right to ask them a billion questions (UNDER OATH) and demand billions of documents etc! And how about risk of video taped depositions of ACORN officials? The more I think about this, the more I wonder whose good idea this was!

Potentially opening themselves up to discovery may be the point exactly. Does anyone doubt the group has deep dark secrets that, if exposed, could bring down a lot more than Acorn?

Over the next few days and weeks, we will see just how many die hard supporters begin defending Acorn at the top of their lungs. To these people, I ask “What are you hiding”?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
