More Disinformation: ACORN Files Bankruptcy While Plotting Its Return

Bertha Lewis, chief organizer for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) announced today that her group has filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition.

Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code provides for the liquidation of the estate of an indebted individual or corporate entity. This is different from Chapter 11 which often provides debtors with temporary protection from their creditors while they reorganize their affairs.

Lewis (pictured above) blamed everyone except herself for ACORN’s never-ending problems.

In a statement posted on the group’s website, Lewis asserted that ACORN fell victim to its own “highly effective strategies” that succeeded in “catching the attention of right-wing media and its proponents.”

ACORN was subjected to a “barrage of unmitigated accusations,” but even as the “extremists” attacking it “increased their radicalism, we continued to make a difference for families in each and every corner of our nation.”

To Lewis, conservatives are evil. In a speech earlier this year to a Young Democratic Socialists meeting, she called the Tea Party a “bowel movement” and seemed to suggest a violent race war was in America’s future.

ACORN isn’t going away.

Its voter fraud division, Project Vote, continues to operate, as does its housing bubble subsidiary ACORN Housing (which changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America).

ACORN hagiographer John Atlas already admitted in his recent book Seeds of Change that ACORN will resurface after today’s elections. The various renamed state chapters will re-federate under a new umbrella group.

ACORN’s not going anywhere but now it will be more difficult to track.
