ACORN’s mysterious sugar daddy

by Ed Morrissey

When life hands you lemons, find a sugar daddy to turn it into lemonade. That appears to be the axiom in play at ACORN today, which has sent out an e-mail blast hoping to turn videos of several offices offering assistance for child-prostitution and tax evasion into a bountiful fund-raising opportunity. Two sources have forwarded the fundraising e-mails to us today, one of whom is our old friend John Ziegler. John says he has no idea how they got his name and e-mail address, except that he donated money once to a Democrat Congressman, a friend of his who is still serving in Congress now. That certainly seems interesting in terms of connections to this political scandal.

Bertha Lewis informs the potential donors that an unnamed individual will match donations up to $20,000 for the privilege of continuing to assist people with the kind of legal advice seen in action:

See Acorn Document here!

Yes, it was that dastardly Fox News that made Congress - including most of the Democrats on Capitol Hill — stop funding for ACORN. It had nothing to do with the fact that multiple ACORN offices felt comfortable in instructing self-described purveyors of child prostitution in how to evade taxes and detection. No, Fox News snaps its fingers, and Democrats do their bidding. Uh … sure. It’s not for nothing that I call Bertha Lewis the Baghdad Bob of ACORN.

So who’s the “generous supporter” so inspired by multiple counts of tax evasion and conspiracy to obstruct justice in child prostitution and human trafficking? Shouldn’t ACORN make that plain as part of their attempt to “survive” Fox News and the “right wing”? Or is the generous supporter that embarrassed to show his face?

Let’s hope so.

Update: John’s friend is a current member of Congress, which makes his addition to ACORN’s list even more interesting. Do all Democrats share their e-mail lists with ACORN?

EXCERPT From Email Blast!
as sent to John Ziegler!
**************

Dear John ,

I know I speak for everyone at ACORN when I tell you that we are humbled by the outpouring of support, and we are deeply grateful.

I have an exciting update to share with you. An anonymous
donor has offered to match all new donations to ACORN — dollar-for-dollar — up to $20,000.

There will never be a more important moment to donate to ACORN — we are in the fight of our lives. And now, when you donate, your gift will be worth TWICE as much, up to $20,000.

Thank you for everything you do to help people in need,
– Bertha Lewis

There ought to be a law in falsely stating that
an anonymous donor will secretly double everyones donations
up to 20,000.

Does this mean the donor will match each donation as long as it’s below $20K, or that they will match donations until the total reaches $20K? If the latter, that’s pretty chintzy. I bet ACORN blows through millions in a month.

I can’t wait to see a full accounting of this criminal organization.
