Sean Hannity Talks ACORN Corruption While Ignoring “Great American’s” Corrupt Past

Reported by Priscilla - September 26, 2009 -

During his September 18th “Great American” Panel, Sean Hannity brayed about the alleged criminality of ACORN, and going after “corrupt radicals in the Obama administration” - corruption that Hannity wasn’t outraged about during the Bush administration when Bush officials resigned and received probation or jail sentences (one of whom was a Homeland Security official who was convicted of using a computer to seduce a child) as a result of criminal investigations. But in yet another sterling example of cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy, Hannity failed to note that one of his guests, Vincent “Buddy” Cianci, former mayor of Providence, Rhode Island, left office because he was convicted of a federal racketeering conspiracy or as the presiding judge described it, “running a criminal enterprise.” The four year investigation was dubbed “Operation Plunder Dome.” Cianci served five years in jail and now hosts a radio talk show. So while denouncing ACORN, Hannity hosts an unrepentant ex mayor who used his taxpayer funded office to run a criminal racket. Oh, the irony – or is it the hypocrisy!
