Mass Resistance has dug up an interesting press release in Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley’s political past. In 2008 Ms. Coakley sent out an endearing press release praising the now scandal embroiled ACORN.:
“I am honored to have received this recognition from ACORN,” said Attorney General Coakley. “As our office continues to fight predatory lending practices, it is important for local, state, and federal officials, as well as others to work together to try and provide relief and real solutions to individuals who face the threat of foreclosure.”
Ms. Coakley is the top law enforcer of Massachusetts, and her support of ACORN’s practices makes one wonder where her ethical compass actually rests in matters of how she handled the licensing of non-profits in her state as well as being responsible for the reporting and financial disclosures of those groups.
