    ACORN Spokesman Says Group Is Disbanding
    National Community Activist Group Breaking Up Amid Falling Revenues

    CHICAGO --

    A spokesman for the once mighty community activist group ACORN says the group is disbanding.

    National ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan said Monday that the organization's board decided to close remaining state affiliates and field offices by April 1 because of falling revenues. Some other national operations will continue operating for at least several weeks before shutting for good.

    Scandal enveloped the organization six months ago when video footage emerged showing ACORN workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    Several big affiliates, including ACORN New York and California, broke away this year and changed their names in a bid to ditch the tarnished image of their parent organization and restore funding that ran dry in the wake of the video scandal.

    This could be a good thing, then again, might be bad as now there will be many individual groups out there with no universal identity.

    Last I read, they were going to change the name and keep on doing all the good things they were noted for doing.

    I still do not trust them and do believe that the group is just closing down one name and will be back in business as a new group name. And just as sleeeeezzy

    ...will still stink.

    This is a front group and it's no longer useful. There will soon be another front group taking its place with many of the same people serving the same masters.

    The April 1st date makes me doubt the veracity of the statement.

    Kind of like when the Soviet Union changed their name.
