Harshbarger: Not the guy
The announcement of ACORN that former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger, will be called in to review ACORN's finances and activities is not reassuring. Although I am sure that Harshbarger is a fine fellow and a good lawyer, he is also a liberal Democrat elected with Union support in Massachusetts. Given that the funders of ACORN are principally unions, a more reassuring choice could have been made. ACORN Executive Director and New York Working Families Party boss Bertha Lewis, feigning shock and surprise at ACORN 's various illegal doings is a charade for the public. Lewis's decision to sue the conservative activists who filmed ACORN officials coaching them on how to defraud the government seems an act of stupidity which will only bring greater attention to ACORN's transgressions.
