ACORN Whistleblower Anita Moncrief:
“ACORN created a climate and a culture of fraud, no matter where they were trained.”
“They would hire ex-crack heads and ex-cons, people with low moral character so it was easy to throw them under the bus. “
“We weren’t fighting to end poverty, the money was in the fight, as long as they were saying they were trying to end poverty, they were getting money.”
“In 2006 we had what I like to call the meeting that changed everything,” she said. “We were planning what I like to call ACORN’s socialist wish list.”
“If we’re cheating, are we really winning?” MonCrief said to herself before exposing ACORN corruption.
“Our country is under attack from the inside, the DOJ has gone wild.”
“Our Department of Justice is no longer working for the American people, they’re working against us.”
“They’re not going to go down quietly, they are going to go down kicking and screaming. This is our year, I am honored to be with you guys tonight.”
