By this point, everyone is familiar with the most recent scandal involving ACORN, (having its employees caught on video in multiple offices offering help in committing loan fraud, setting up a brothel and smuggling in underage illegal aliens to be prostitutes).  But there is a laundry list of other, more serious charges which scream out for a national RICO investigation by the Justice Department.

Odds that the ban is total by the time it reaches Obama's desk?
