TARP Money Going To ACORN? I'm Shocked! Shocked I Tell You!

In news as surprising as discovering that college football is corrupt, TARP Money may be tied to ACORN. Yeah, I know. Knock me over with a feather..

And in a move even less surprising, the Chicago Way is involved, in the name of Jamie Dimon. I found this nugget interesting.

Dimon, of course, is no white-shoe East Coast banker. He’s a Chicago Democrat, deeply plugged in to Obama’s machine — he was said to be Obama’s choice for secretary of the Treasury until advisers convinced the president to go with Tim Geithner — and so it’s no surprise to find his company shunting money ACORN’s way. And where there are Chicago Democrats and a whiff of corruption, can the name Daley be far away? Bill Daley, brother of Chicago mayor Richard Daley and son of Boss Daley, runs JPMorgan Chase’s charitable foundation and also is in charge of the bank’s “corporate social responsibility” office. While it would be unfair to visit the sins of the father (and the brother, and the rest of the Chicago machine) upon the son, Daley is not the first name that comes to mind when one thinks of “social responsibility.” Even leaving aside his family connections, Mr. Daley represents precisely the overlap of Wall Street, Democratic machine politics, and ACORN that ought to give sober observers pause.

Well, if it's sober observers you want, stay away from Congress. But I digress. These two groups are more incestuous than European royalty, and their innerworkings, including the relation another Chicago hack with ties to the banking industry need to be exposed.
