ACORN Plays Dumb on Conspiracy to Destroy America « The Washington Independent
Adam Serwer investigates the charges that ACORN is trying to disrupt and destroy Tea Party rallies by … uh, asking ACORN about it.
I called up ACORN Executive Director Steve Kest and asked him about it. “I saw some mention of this on a blog, I have no idea even what the tea parties are,” Kest said. He then asked me to explain to him what the tea parties were having only just heard about them yesterday. When I laughed, Kest said, “Seriously, do you know more about what the deal is here?”
The big find in Sewer’s post might be the source of the rumor: a sort-of-disorganized Tea Party blog that no one had ever heard of.
