ACORN logoA conservative activist and former presidential candidate is skeptical that the controversial group ACORN has really gone away, despite the fact that it officially disbanded on April 1.

Reuters recently reported that the liberal group would formally disband due to falling revenues but that its state chapters would reorganize under new names. ACORN’s funding began to dry up after a team of undercover investigative reporters released videos showing ACORN workers giving advice on how to flout the law. There have also been numerous reports of ACORN registering fraudulent voters.

The scandal prompted Congress to vote to prohibit ACORN from receiving federal funding, even though a federal judge later ruled the prohibition illegal.

Gary Bauer 2 (American Values)Gary Bauer, president of American Values and chairman of Campaign for Working Families, is not convinced the organization is finished. “I think this is a shell game,” he suspects. “They’re going to reopen their doors, perhaps under a new name, because the ACORN name has rightfully been totally damaged by their activities.”

Bauer notes that any group that engages in voter irregularities can make a big difference in close elections.

“I think a lot of people are beginning to notice that in recent years virtually every close election, when the recount takes place [it] ends up going to the liberal,” he points out. “That’s way beyond what the law of averages would tell you would normally happen.”

The conservative activist is convinced the group will be up and operating under new ownership in time for the elections this fall.
