The Truth About Acorn

The right has been targeting the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now, better known as ACORN for a few years now, and it's passed the point of absurdity.

Tonight, Bertha Lewis, CEO of ACORN, will join me for the whole second hour. We'll talk about the history of ACORN, and why they've been demonized and crucified.

In addition to our interview, you should check out their website, and all the documentation about the PR campaign that's been waged against them.

Once you hear the interview, you might want to check out the roll call and see which Congressmen voted for and against the "De fund ACORN Act" to thank those who voted against the madness.

We'll kick off the show with tonight's Quickie News Update with Ellen Ratner from the Talk Radio News Service and get the details on today's debate and votes on the public option in the Senate Finance Committee.

Then, Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny.com will join me for a conversation about what we need to do with Senators like Baucus, Conrad and and Lincoln. In addition to blogging at DownWithTyranny, Howie also runs the Blue America PAC. They have a special campaign going to help oust Blanche Lincoln in November 2010.
