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.

The Buckeye State is ACORN Free!

March 12, 2010

The 1851 Center for Constitutional Law is reporting that ACORN has settled the RICO lawsuit brought against them.  Under the settlement, ACORN agreed to surrender all of its Ohio business licenses by June 1, 2010. Further, the organization cannot support or enable any individual or organization that seeks to engage in the same type of activity.

The Center’s initial legal action alleged ACORN engaged in a pattern of corrupt activity that amounted to organized crime , due to its perpetual submission of fraudulent voter registrations in Ohio. The legal center sought the dissolution of ACORN as a legal entity, the revocation of any licenses in Ohio, and an injunction against fraudulent voter registration and other illegal activities.

How sweet is that!  ACORN is out of business in Ohio.

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?
