Acorn files for bankruptcy

What interesting timing!

From their website:

The ongoing political onslaught caused irreparable harm. This effort was a clear attempt to cast a shadow over the historic 2008 Presidential election, and set up a far right counter offense. Through those attacks we re-tooled and re-organized. Then again came the right-wing media blitz. This time of edited videos that misrepresented our mission, and consequently misled the public. The pressure and cost of defending ourselves in multiple investigations as a result of the falsified videos has eroded our organization. As a result we will be filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy by close of business today.

Gosh darn that right-wing media blitz.

(Ok, I can’t help this last one. I really can’t.)

I guess it’s ok. They were a bunch of nuts anyway. 😉

    What’s amazing about this is that two young adults that are still pretty much unknown caused it to happen. Who woulda thunk it.
