Undead ACORN Is Trying To Elect Joe Sestak in PA

By on 11.2.10 | 7:00AM

ACORN is not dead.

In fact it is working hard in Pennsylvania to elect Joe Sestak and other Democrats to Congress.

To stay out of the media spotlight this year, ACORN converted its Pennsylvania chapter into two new nonprofit corporations. The two tax-exempt affiliates are Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice (PNSJ) and Action United. Both nonprofits filed their incorporation documents in January. Both groups operate out of ACORN's offices at 846 North Broad Street in Philadelphia.

The two "new" ACORN groups have been very active in the current election cycle.

For example, on Oct. 20, before a candidates' debate, Action United loudly protested Republican Senate candidate Pat Toomey's support for Social Security reform. The demonstration took place outside Philadelphia's National Constitution Center before the Toomey-Sestak debate got underway.

Pat Worrell of Action United said Pennsylvanians oppose Toomey's "reckless" proposal to let taxpayers have greater control over their retirement plans. Worrell was chairwoman of ACORN's chapter in Chester, Penn.

Inside ACORN sources say PNSJ has been conducting a get-out-the-vote drive exclusively in Democratic strongholds, including public housing facilities.
