NYCC’s connection to ACORN isn’t a tenuous one: It works from the former ACORN offices in Brooklyn, uses old ACORN office stationery, employs much of the old ACORN staff and, according to several sources, engages in some of the old organization’s controversial techniques to raise money, interest and awareness for the protests.
The reincarnation of the defunct New York ACORN chapter -- a group called New York Communities for Change -- is a big supporter of the protesters in Zuccotti Park.
Jon Kest, the former director of New York ACORN, now heads up NYCC, which is located in ACORN’s old headquarters on Nevins Street in Brooklyn. Obama has been and still is closely linked with ACORN and their new re-branded reincarnations. It is amazing how many of their idols and enablers are either crony capitalists and members of the 1%!
