We’ve all seen the stories by now.
ACORN has been booted from Ohio.
The Buckeye State got rid of a few nuts.
Bad pun, I know.
ACORN proved to be a successful source of GOTV(whether legal or not is another question entirely), particularly in 2008. The question is how much their presence will be missed in 2010.
While the suit states ACORN cannot reconstitute itself as another entity, these people won’t simply go away. They will find other legal avenues to do the job they love to do.
The question is how quickly they can reorganize. Will it be with Organizing for America? Something brand new?
And can they do it quickly enough to have an effect on 2010?
