ACORN sues filmmakers, and the Washington Post is there:

In an exclusive interview with The Washington Post, founder Wade Rathke said conservative claims that ACORN is a "criminal enterprise" that misuses federal and donor funds for political ends -- a claim contained in a report by House Republicans -- are a "complete fabrication." He said exaggeration and conjecture about the group are being passed off daily on cable television and Web blogs as documented fact.

"It's balderdash on top of poppycock," said Rathke, who was forced out last year amid an embezzlement scandal involving his brother. "It is a tactic they are trying to aggressively use to attack Obama . . . to paint the president and anybody else they can as radicals."

You can't make this stuff up!

Update: from a comment on The Volokh Conspiracy:

Oh, please let it go to discovery!

To paraphrase Woody Allen (from Bananas, I think):

Your Honor, this lawsuit is a sham! A travesty! A sham of a travesty of two mockeries of a debacle!
