    Thank you for this article on Wade Rathke (founder of ACORN) and his brother, Dale Rathke, who embezzled just under one million dollars from the organization and is now FINALLY under investigation in the last 3 weeks. We have seen very little here in the newspaper or on TV in New Orleans or in the national press. I have only heard Rush mention his name on the radio. Dale Rathke’s elderly parents and certain rich friend(s)have been paying back the money since 2000 and Dale and his brother and people high up in ACORN have kept the whole thing quiet. Can you tell me why the brothers are not in jail? Their mother and father have enabled yet another set of kids (in their 50’s, mind you) cover up a crime and go unpunished!

    As a New Orleans native who has served on a board with Dale Rathke, I am sickened about his behavior and about the cover-up. Dale has always enjoyed a very lavish lifestyle and now I know why. Just pathetic! Where does all our money go? Don’t answer that!
    Thank you
