For years, the Christian right and the secular left had a co-dependent relationship. Groups such as the Christian Coalition on the one side and ACLU on the other drew millions in contributions by attacking each other. We now see a similar relationship between ACORN and the Republican National Committee. During the 2008 campaign, Republicans routinely accused ACORN of election fraud. Now, David Weigel writes in The Washington Independent:
“ACORN’s community organizers are eager to once again take action to aid their old friend in the White House,” wrote RNC Chairman Michael Steele. “You can be sure they’ll be manipulating population numbers.The 39-year-old group has never been more controversial. Bertha Lewis, the chief executive officer and chief organizer of ACORN since the middle of last year, could not have been happier.“Fine, bring it,” Lewis said in an interview with TWI, inside ACORN’s national offices near Capitol Hill. She brought up her fists in a boxing stance. “Let’s bring it. We know what the true facts are. We know that we’ll win in court. Our strategy now is to beef up our operations so we can defend ourselves.”
