Officials From Organization Formerly Known as ACORN Destroying Documents Tying Them to OWS


Fox News reports that officials from the organization formerly known as ACORN have been destroying documents that will tie them to the Occupy Wall Street movement. You know, because it’s so “grass roots” that they’ve resorted to paying homeless people to go out and protest.

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York — operating as New York Communities for Change — have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

“They’re doing serious damage control right now,” said an NYCC source.

NYCC Executive Director Jon Kest has been calling a series of emergency meetings to discuss last week’s report—and taking extreme measures to identify the sources in their office and to prevent further damage, a source within NYCC told

Read the whole thing, it gets even better from there. I just hope they don’t identify the sources of the leaks – we all know how vicious these progressive can be.
