ACORN CHANGING THEIR NAME. Too little, too late.
The dirty little secret is ACORN is changing its name.
In a June 21 Washington Examiner interview with Marcel Reid, a dissident ACORN whistle blower, the name is being changed to Community Organizations International.
"We've known for many months now that the name ACORN is going to be retired," [Marcel] Reid said. "The name has been so damaged to the point where the leadership knows it simply can't go on as it has with the ACORN label out front and center, especially after all of the reporting."
In fact, the process has already begun, she noted. Wade Rathke, who founded the organization, announced on his blog that ACORN International has officially changed its name to "Community Organizations International."
