Even in Texas, Democrat state Rep. Kristi Thibaut’s ACORN doesn’t fall far from the tree

31 Aug

Well looky there, ACORN has its own little nut in the Texas House.  The Texas Republicans peeled her bark in a press release today.

Thibaut’s past is not unlike that of President Barack Obama; she too started out as a community organizer. And both did work for ACORN. Kristi even appeared at the State Capitol as a paid lobbyist for ACORN during the 2007 Legislative Session.

ACORN activities have attracted the attention of law enforcement and prosecutors around the country, after they were exposed in a series of stings by a couple posing as a prostitute and a pimp, soliciting ACORN’s advice on how to operate their illegal enterprise without getting caught. Even the United States Congress condemned ACORN’s actions and cut off federal funding. The group has since seen many of its state and local branches disband, only to reconstitute under new names.

And there’s a web site in which Thibaut confesses the whole, sordid connection.  Evidently, Kristi really does work for ACORN.
