CONyers & ACORN: Connection Problems??

Our esteemed Namvet posts that
[Glenn] Beck has located the Acorn Cookie Jar but will he manage to discover exactly who has their greedy, grubby little hands in it?

Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) has killed a proposed Congressional probe into the alleged misdeeds of Acorn. He released the following statement: "Based on my review of the information regarding the complaints against ACORN, I have concluded that a hearing on this matter appears unwarranted at this time."
WTF?! The American Spectator's piece on Mr. Conyers's sudden change of heart cannot help but give rise to the question, "Why that sudden change of heart, Mr. Conyers?" Conyers had previously expressed enthusiasm for holding an ACORN hearing mere weeks ago on March 19 after hearing the testimony of GOP lawyer Heather Heidelbaugh about ACORN's many misdeeds, stating that the allegations were "a pretty serious matter." Two weeks later Conyers reiterated his support for an ACORN probe, telling the Washington Times he still wanted to do it and he "probably will." Conyers, whom the article called an "unlikely champion" for ACORN opponents, rejected arguments from fellow Democrats that his committee should steer clear of the issue. Then, suddenly, he feels a hearing is "unwarranted??"

It does give cause for pause, does it not? The beat goes on, and somehow one cannot help but feel it's all connected...in some dark, down and dirty way...

Rock on all, and keep the faith, as hard as it may seem sometimes. Remember, evil can't survive in the light!


  1. There is another congressman (Nadler)who put pressure on Conyers to layoff ACORN. There is more to come. There will be more charges filed in other states.

    Does Nadler have his hand in the cookie jar?

  2. Let's hope so...and as far as Nadler or any of those people go...probably!
