Darrell Issa fires back at Bertha Lewis

ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis just doesn't get it. In a speech to the National Press Club, Lewis said she wanted to “set the record straight.” Then, she accused Republicans of "McCarthyism."
“This form of modern-day ACORN McCarthyism has got to stop,” she told reporters.

Big Government reported:
WASHINGTON. D.C. – House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) issued the following statement today in response to comments made by ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis at the National Press Club where she accused Republicans of ACORN McCarthyism:

“Was it Republicans who embezzled millions from within their own organization and have yet to report the embezzlement to the IRS or Labor Department? Was it Republicans who conducted the internal review that highlighted the lack of firewalls between their charitable and political activities? Was it Republicans who hired a man convicted of multiple counts of conspiracy and money laundering to raise funds and register voters in Oklahoma? The fact that ACORN’s leadership refuses to even acknowledge and accept responsibility for the state of their organization is disturbing and brings into question the sincerity of ACORN’s pledge to reform their organization.”
