White House Spokesman Now Weighing in On Scandal That Network News is Too Tony and Too Serious-Minded To Cover
The PR Strategy Changes: Give Us Three Months and We'll Fix Ourselves!
Pawlenty Defunds

"Unacceptable," Gibbys says, which if you remember from around 1997-98 translates as "perfectly acceptable" in the Democrat Dictionary.

Next they'll say it's "indefensible," and then defend them.

Words are cheap. Taxpayer dollars aren't.

I notice Gibbsy isn't calling on Pelosi to allow a vote to defund ACORN.

By the way, for good measure, he blames Bush. Kinda.

He pointed out that "previous administrations" had awarded grants to ACORN either through the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.


Thanks to AHFF Geoff.

Bertha Lewis: Just Give Us Three Months to Let This Controversy Blow Over and Go Away and We Can All Pretend It Never Happened: Gee, a stalling tactic now? Switching to "let us fix it ourselves"?

I guess someone really doesn't want their federal funds taken away.

ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis to CNN's Wolf Blitzer: "I will clean this house. It is being done now. And I -- and here's what I would like. I'll come back in three months and you can look at what we've done."

-- From The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer

In related news, Iran just emailed me to say "Yeah, give us three months too."

Pawlenty Grabs Some Red Meat: Stop funding ACORN at once, Minnesota.

Plus he orders a "review of the relationship" between the state and the criminal gang.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R.) sent a letter Wednesday afternoon to the director of the Minnesota Commission of Management and Budget ordering him to stop all state funding to ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), a spokesman for the governor has confirmed to CNSNews.com Editor Pete Winn. “The letter cites recent reports of questionable behavior and potentially illegal activity by ACORN and states that they are of great concern to the governor and underscores the recent vote by the U.S. Senate to ban federal funding to ACORN, which also reflects those concerns,” the Pawlenty spokesman told CNSNews.com’s Winn. In the letter, the governor directs Hanson to stop all state funding to ACORN, unless the state is legally obligated to continue funding. No precise dollar amount is available, the spokesman said. “In addition, the letter directs” the commission “to conduct a thorough review of the state’s relationship with ACORN and to report back to the governor with his findings,” he said.
