Has Carter weighted in on whether or not criticism of Obama's allies (ACRON) is racist?

One wonders whether this puts Acorn in worse light than the tax preparer community, given the "sting" by the NY state tax authorities, as reported by the Wall Street Journal and previously reported by Paul on his blog. See here

Unclear to me from the media stories, which of the stingers engaged in more extensive entrapment, if any. The NY tax authority sample certainly looks to be much larger, suggesting perhaps more likely statistical significance.

Thank you, Daily Show! Almost as sickening as watching ACORN employees give this "advice" is watching the Ancien Regime of media outlets ignore this story. Aren't we glad that we can get real news on cable and the net? Question: Is there any record of Timothy Geithner or Charlie Rangel receiving tax advice from an ACORN office?
