ACORN Press Release: The end of an era: ACORN files Chapter 7 bankruptcy
End of an era? Or end of an error? Bertha Lewis still defiant in her self-delusion announces ACORN's bankruptcy filing.
... we will be filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy by close of business today.
We have seen this coming for some time. Our chapters closed in the first quarter of the year. We have spent our remaining resources trying to dissolve the organization with integrity, while continuing to respond to the extremist attacks. Allegations and reports will continue to try to undermine all that ACORN has done, often searching for evidence from long before I became CEO.
Thank you to all our members, supporters, funders, friends and allies who helped ACORN carve out a deep and lasting place in history. Let us all learn from the past, and march boldly into the future. ACORN will live on in the hearts of the people it served, and as those of us who fight for justice know, "THE PEOPLE UNITED WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED".
