CHQ - ACORN, Payola and Color of Law

Mark Fitzgibbons: ACORN, Payola and Color of Law - Former Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch was endorsed in three statewide races by ACORN PAC.

Did his prot\351g\351, another ACORN-endorsed attorney general, Lori Swanson, look the other way when the law was either broken or evaded by her mentor?
