Funding cut to ACORN, a good first step.

By jdclyde ·**7/ap_on_go_co/us_congress_acorn

"WASHINGTON ? The House voted Thursday to deny all federal funds for ACORN in a GOP-led strike against the scandal-tainted community organizing group that comes just three days after the Senate took similar action."

This should come as no surprise to anyone. Adding to the good news was that ACORN will not be allowed to defraud the country by being put in charge of the census.

This is a good first step, but because of the VERY close ties to our sitting President, I doubt we will see a real investigation into this group.

....two were the numnuts from Illinois. Apparently, there are fans of this film representing the state:

Speaking of real investigations...did you hear about J3 (Jesse Jackass Jr)? An investigation into his wheeling and dealing were put on hold due to the former gov's trial.

Yeah, right!

Lincoln is doing full somersaults in his grave!

What ties are you referring to? Please don't tell me it is the misrepresentation put out by Rove.

I think some other posters were right, you do have an unhealthy hatred of our President.

This is about Acorn, not Obama

by jdclyde In reply to Yawn

But when is the last time you saw an organization with close ties to a sitting president that got real scrutiny?

ACORN is to important to the Democrat party, and being they have a monopoly right now, I don't see this going far.

Rove? Guess you couldn't be bothered to read the AP article, huh?

Didn't need to

Acorn had a good goal, but poor management and oversight. They needed to be cut off.

I was referring to your use of VERY close ties to our sitting ...

That is totally incorrect and is actually very abstract. Rove made a comment that Obama was a lawyer for them. In fact the law firm that he worked for represented Acorn and others in getting Illinois to allow voter registration during the driver licensing process (which federal law allowed). He also worked with the US Justice dept. during that trail, does that give him close ties to the USJ at that time?

Who can argue that ACORN isn't corrupt after seeing the video of the two ACORN employees coaching a (posed) pimp and prostitute on how to get public funding for their house.

Thankfully, they will have nothing to do with the census. Could you imagine?

It will be very interesting to see how Obama handles ACORN's improprieties. Slap on the wrist or harsh penalty? I always think back to Obama's handling of Reverend Jeremiah Wright. He basically cut that guy out of his life after 20 years because of his rantings. It could happen to ACORN too because they stepped over the line.

There will be MANY that have the "by any means" attitude the will excuse ANY improper behavior as long as it pushes their agenda.
