ACORN, it’s nice to have friends in high places.

It’s nice when you have friends in high places but will it help in the long-term? Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) who chairs House Judiciary subcommittee that might well have to investigate ACORN has long term ties to ACORN ties to ACORN as per this article at Big Government (my new favorite blog) by Matthew Vadum.  As per the article Nadler a long term ACORN supporter (chairs a House subcommittee) was reported to have asked ACORN’s NYS based lawyer in a phone conversation why ACORN didn’t sue to stop Congress from cutting off ACORN’s funding from the federal government. Could there be a conflict here? Should a ranking House subcommittee chairman who may well have to participate in an investigation of ACORN suggest legal strategies to ACORN’s lawyer? Nadler was one of the few Congressional Democrats to vote against the funding cut off.
