Former ACORN employee economic opportunities

by Smitty (h/t Drudge)

Fox reports ACORN is enjoying another Judas Priest moment:

This was really a sequel to their other JP moment

Now, as the population of ex-ACORN employees rises, will it prove fissionable? That is, how many old hands on the loose will it take until the organization consumes itself? In other words, as they start to need cash, will they:
  • Simply extort loot from their old employer?
  • Set up SAPLING (Severed ACORN Patriots Launching Insurgency Now Good)
  • Try to beat Michelle Malkin's sales numbers with a tell-all
  • Start a reality TV show where they behave like gangsters (though has kind of already covered that)
Explore other possibilities in the comments.

    "Kelly’s death comes just four days after he pleaded guilty to a scheme involving $8.5 million in fraud at O’Hare Airport. It was the second conviction he notched this year -- he still faced trial along with the ex-governor, in June. Kelly had been indicted three times since 2007 but refused to become a cooperating witness. When he pleaded guilty to the O’Hare scheme Tuesday, Kelly spoke of feeling intense pressure by prosecutors to abandon his loyalty to Blagojevich and cooperate with the feds.

    Chicago police are investigating Kelly’s death. A source familiar with the investigation told the Chicago Sun-Times that Kelly, who is married, called a woman identified as his “girlfriend” and told her that he took some pills and was going to kill himself."
