!!!??? WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG ???!!!

Hasn't it been nearly two years since the somewhere between $1,000,000 - $5,000,000 embezzlement occured, by Wade Rathke's brother, Dale.
And, hasn't it been close to a year since the news released this story?

What does the AG think they'll find after turning a blind eye to this for so long? Hmmm?
New computers? New hard drives? Clean hard drives?
My bet is they'll come up with nothing and dismiss this -- betcha! :dirol:  

This is almost laughable,  :ROTF:  if it weren't so corrupt!  :angry2:

New Orleans Office Raided by Louisiana Attorney General

In a fast-breaking development comes word that agents of the Attorney’s General office in Louisiana have raided ACORN’s offices in New Orleans. ACORN’s New Orleans was, for decades, the headquarters of the national community organizing association. News of the raid comes from Marcel Reid and her colleagues at ACORN 8, an association of former ACORN leaders and board members. Many of the individuals involved with ACORN 8 were fired from ACORN for demanding a forensic audit following an embezzlement scandal involving Dale Rathke, brother of ACORN co-founder Wade Rathke.

According to

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has served a search warrant at the ACORNoffice at 2609 Canal Street, according to Tammi Arender Herring, a spokeswoman with the office.

Investigators in khaki pants and polo shirts loaded several dozen computers and other electronic items into an SUV. They are also carrying records out of the building on handcarts.

The large office building sits at the corner of Dorgenois and Canal. ACORN staffers were given no notice that a search would be conducted today, Herring said.

From WDAM in New Orleans:

Caldwell said investigators will copy records and hard drives, then return them to ACORN.

He said the original allegations of embezzlement were made last year by ACORN board members who were fired after they asked for a forensic examination of the group’s books.

ACORN fired the longtime director of its Louisiana chapter last month, citing a lack of accountability.

Big Government readers may remember that the ‘longtime director’ ACORNS’s LA chapter is Beth Butler, longtime companion/wife of ACORN co-founder Wade Rathke.
