    Simpson, that is:

    "It takes two people to lie, Marge. One to lie, and the other to listen."

    Individuals lied to ACORN by filling in bogus forms, and now it's ACORN that's doing the lying? I don't think so.

    They have to take some responsibility, of course, but come on - the isolated individuals are the real liars.

      by flagging the questionable forms and alerting the registrar of voters, as they are legally bound to do.  The voter registration officials, who were politically motivated, then "leaked" this fake "scandal" to the press to discredit ACORN.  Disgusting.
