Politically Speaking: King sees ACORN in acorn

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King couldn't believe what he saw
Monday during the annual White House Christmas party. Republican King
has been a big critic in trying to get the federal government to rein
in the activities of the Association of Community Organizations for
Reform Now, typically known not by that name but rather the acronym
ACORN. Republicans since early 2008 have been pushing a connection of
voter fraud by ACORN to President Obama, who once worked for the
association. When the association had a spate of negative publicity
when a worker gave tax advice to a duo posing as a prostitute and pimp
(and recorded the exchange for video). So King couldn't believe his
eyes when he saw the holiday cookies that were in the shape of an
acorn. "I didn't expect to see such stark symbolism," King said in an
e-mail to Fox News.
