Corrupt Acorn To Get Nearly 4 Billion in 2011!


ACORN slated to get nearly $4 billion in Obama's fiscal 2011 budget!
How in the world can this happen after all the corruption and countless under-cover sting operations that showed multiple Acorn Offices gave advice on money laundering/tax evasion and assisting with illegal alien under aged girls (as young as 14) being brought to the USA to be used as child prostitutes?!?! Not to mention the voter registration fraud charges all over the country in many states. The Million dollar embezzlement that was covered up by the MSM and ACORN/SEIU. If ACORN does get this money it will enrage the people of this country like nothing seen before in our life times!


The Washington Times Reports
To add to the list of outrageous earmarks in Obama's fiscal 2011 budget, ACORN, the embezzlement-prone, voter-registration-fraud-plagued, leftist community organizing group, is slated to receive nearly $4 billion from a taxpayer-funded slush fund.

The money will come from the Community Development Block Grant, one of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's longest-running programs. The HUD Web site cryptically defines the grant's purpose as providing "communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs," not a reassuring description given the group's recent past history of aiding the community through gratuitous missappropriation of funds.

Has Congress already forgotten the Sept. 2009 ban it passed on ACORN and ACORN-afiliate funding? Or the video that led to the ban, footage showing ACORN employees urging individuals they thought were a prostitute and her pimp to set up a brothel and advising the pair on evading taxpaying? It would have had a hard time doing so, cosidering that ACORN is currently suing the federal government for the attempted ban.

Though the largely Democratic House Appropriations Committee voted against the block last December, it is a Bill Clinton-appointee, U.S. District Court Judge Nina Gershon, who has truly aided the corrupt ACORN cause. Also in December, Gershon issued a federal injunction against the Congressional funding ban, crying that it ran afoul of the Constitution because under the ban, ACORN was "singled out by Congress for punishment that directly and immediately affects their ability to continue to obtain federal funding, in the absence of any judicial, or even administrative, process adjudicating guilt."

In essence, Gershon has said ACORN can't be punished now because the Obama administration failed to punish it earlier--through a long-overdue, much-needed criminal investigation into the group. But this is absurd, because ACORN's not receiving such funding does not constitute its being deprived of a right. The funding is a gift, and Congress has the right to cancel contracts whenever it feels like it.

Just ask Blackwater, a company we are wondering whether Gershon would so heroically rush to defend were it to make the same move ACORN is now making.
