In the second segment of the show, we discuss the decision of ACORN to shutter its Maryland offices. The national non-profit has struggled after a scandal last year in which a conservative activist released videos which he claimed showed ACORN employees giving him advice on how to hide a ring of under-aged prostitutes.
We’re joined by:
Sonja Merchant-Jones, long-time ACORN member and leader in Maryland
Michelle Moore, former Maryland Field Director for ACORN
John Atlas, author of the forthcoming book Seeds of Change: The Story of Acorn, America’s Most Controversial Anti-Poverty Community Organizing Group and founder and President of the New Jersey-based National Housing Institute
Andy Green, opinion editor for the Baltimore Sun. Click to read the Sun’s editorial on ACORN.
