The longtime director of the Louisiana chapter of ACORN was fired. Beth Butler was dismissed, yesterday.
ACORN's chief executive office didn't give specifics into the firing.
Butler believes she was fired, because she refused to let go of members whom national ACORN leaders wanted ousted.
Butler is a friend of ACORN founder Wade Rathke, who's brother is accused of embezzling money from the state.
