ACORN to Get Federal Funding…Again?

March 23, 2010

Mainstream media is doing everything they can to minimize coverage of ACORN.  The last six months have been devastating to the organization.  Between the sting videos, the state lawsuits, and an act of Congress, it looked like ACORN was out of business.

Not so fast.  On March 10, 2009, federal judge Nina Gershon of the Eastern District of New York made permanent her temporary injunction prohibiting Congress from cutting off funding for ACORN.  The Department of Justice is planning to appeal Gershon’s ruling and seek a stay pending appeal.

ACORN Plays the Race Card

September 17, 2009

With serious heat and light now shining on ACORN, Bertha Lewis, the group’s CEO told ABC News that all the negative attention is a “modern day form of McCarthyism” and said ACORN’s efforts help make sure “poor people, young people, minorities are participating in this democracy.” She went on to say that “There is an undertone of racism here. I think they’re basically saying these people shouldn’t be trusted, how could they be trusted? You know, they’re all poor black and brown people.”

Meanwhile FBI Director Robert Mueller said yesterday that he had only recently heard about the ACORN videos but that given the preliminary information, it is the type of thing that the FBI and Justice Department “would look at.”

ACORN Stung…Again!

September 17, 2009

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles have done it again.  Their fifth video was filmed at the ACORN office in San Diego and it appears that the ACORN worker actually offers to help bring under age girls to the USA for the purposes of prostitution.  To see it, please visit www.BigGovernment.com

Many people say that ACORN should lose all federal funding.  They were on track to receive Billions next year.  I agree and so do all but 7 US Senators…good luck to those 7 in getting re-elected!  But I have a bigger issue with ACORN.  How many real criminals have they helped break federal and state laws against prostitution, tax evasion and fraud, among others?  Can you say RICO?  Why is the FBI not at every ACORN office in the country right now sifting through email and other records?  Who is protecting this organization and why?
