Rathke sits on the Tides Foundation board. (And Pittsburgh’s Heinz Endowments, chaired by ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of U.S. Sen. John Kerry, funded Tides with more than $8 million between 1994 and 2005.)
Anyone who’s watched Glenn Beck or read David Horowitz‘ website has heard of the Tides Foundation, Drummond Pike and Wade and Dale Rathke. These are not new names to the ACORN scandal.

What will be interesting to see are the “other” names that will come out when this ugly mess is brought to the sunlight: names like Theresa Heinz and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend.

Former Maryland Lt. Governor Townsend is on the ACORN advisory council which also include John Podesta, (head of the Center for American Progress – left wing liberal group and part of the former Clinton administration) and Andy Stern (president of the SEIU).
