Wow read this whole article and be disgusted! (http://townhall.com/columnists/MatthewVadum/2009/09/10/acorn_exposed_stealing_democracy?page=full&comments=true) This is the 0s army.



In the parallel universe occupied by many left-of-center Americans, the increasingly controversial Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a high-minded poor peopleís group similar to crusading civil rights groups of the 1960s.

They believe ACORN is a public-spirited organization that registers the poor to vote and encourages citizen involvement in morally uplifting projects and community development. They believe it spurs production of affordable housing, protects tenantsí rights, keeps unjustly exploited borrowers in their homes and rages against predatory lenders. They believe it fights for the rights of workers, immigrants and utility ratepayers.


But it does so much more.

When the extortion and vote-fraud conglomerate ACORN isnít busing schoolchildren to the nationís capital to protest proposed tax cuts, itís busy campaigning to expand the size and scope of government, raising the dead from cemeteries and leading them to the voting booth, and promoting the so-called Fairness Doctrine in order to bludgeon conservative-dominated talk radio.

Although congressional Democrats refuse to investigate ACORN, so far this year alone voter registration fraud charges have been laid against former ACORN employees in Nevada and Pennsylvania. Nevada charges were laid against two former senior ACORN executives and against the nonprofit entity itself.

ACORN is also under investigation in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, after a man who was registered to vote multiple times by ACORN was indicted in June by a grand jury for fraudulent voting. This is significant because ACORN has long claimed that the illegal casting of ballots is a myth. The Ohio prosecutor continues to probe ACORN.

ACORN frequently claims to be a victim of GOP persecution but that lie wonít work this time: All of the officials laying charges in the three states are Democrats. ACORN also loudly proclaims its nonpartisan status, but thatís nonsense. ACORN works for and endorses only Democrats. During last yearís primaries, the Obama campaign paid $832,598 to Citizens Services Inc., an ACORN affiliate, for get-out-the-vote work.

The activities of the ACORN network, a tangled mess of interlocking directorates and upward of 100 affiliated tax-exempt groups that routinely swap seven-figure checks, have long cried out for a probe under federal racketeering laws. The network has taken in at least $107 million in donations and $53 million in federal funds since 1993, yet it owes millions of dollars in back taxes and is eligible for up to $8.5 billion in federal funding this year.

No one knows how big the entire ACORN networkís budget is. One of the reasons is that tracking housing and community development grants administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is difficult. HUD often distributes the money to states and localities, which then allot the funds to many different nonprofit groups. Getting a total financial picture would require enlisting an army of Freedom of Information Act requesters.

Did you see the story Megyn did on them this morning?

They were advising a "prostitute" (undercover journalist) on how to get a home loan for her "brothel" and declare her co-workers as "dependents" to the IRS.

They suggested that she list her profession as "performance artist".
