    Conyers backs off probe of ACORN
    Says 'powers that be' ended plans for hearings on group
    By S.A. Miller (Contact)

    Originally published 04:45 a.m., June 26, 2009, updated 11:23 p.m., June 25, 2009

    Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. has backed off his plan to investigate purported wrongdoing by the liberal activist group ACORN, saying ?powers that be? put the kibosh on the idea.

    Mr. Conyers, Michigan Democrat, earlier bucked his party leaders by calling for hearings on accusations the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) has committed crimes ranging from voter fraud to a mob-style "protection" racket.

    "The powers that be decided against it," Mr. Conyers told The Washington Times as he left the House chambers Wednesday.

    You know Obomo is not going to let anyone touch his team.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Mr. Conyers' wife just resigned from the Detroit City Council and admitted taking bribes for votes.

    Guess Mr. Conyers "got the message" to stay out of BHO's way.
