Just a Gut Feeling
By now, you’ve probably seen somebody or other mentioning this:
As you are aware in our prior email, we need your presence at Congressman James Langevin’s Town Hall Meeting at the Warwick police Station 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, Warwick, Rhode Island. We are planning on arriving early at 1:30PM to fill the hall before the radical right protestors arrive. A box lunch will be provided for those on the bus. We will meet at headquarters for those wishing to join us on the bus.
The Acorn Team
Something about it just doesn’t resonate right, for me. I suppose poor grammar mightn’t be a stretch in an authentic email from ACORN, but the fact that the signature doesn’t all-cap the group’s name is odd. The fact that the announcement gives the address of the destination, but not the address of “headquarters” is peculiar, too, for a leading organizational group on the dark side.
It could be legitimate, of course, and even if it is not, those who’ve been spreading it around aren’t necessarily aware of its fraudulence. But a whole collection of groups have posted or forwarded the email, and I believe it’s been mentioned on talk radio, as well. If tomorrow comes and there’s no gang of ACORN members wiping crumbs off their chins, a number of folks are going to have unnecessarily lost some credibility for future announcements.
