UPDATE: Can't believe it: IRS & Census Bureau no longer with ACORN, 11 ACORN workers arrested, and 2 fired?
UPDATE: Another ACORN falls from government grace: IRS severs ties with ACORN over scandal Sept. 23, 2009: "The IRS says it is severing ties with ACORN, the community activist group involved in a scandal after employees were caught on video giving advice to a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp"
Last week, ACORN turned in Florida workers on voter fraud charges, (My emphasis) "Armed with a tip from the grassroots group ACORN about its own workers, authorities on Wednesday began arresting 11 people suspected of falsifying hundreds of voter applications during a registration drive last year."
And now this was reported later on Friday, often the time news you don't want to create a stir with is released: Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count: "In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count."
"The Census Bureau on Friday severed its ties with ACORN, a community organization that has been hit with Republican accusations of voter-registration fraud."
"In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count."ACORN was also in the news last week when 2 ACORN workers were caught on hidden camera giving tax advice to 2 people posing as a pimp and prostitute on how to scam the system. You have to watch it to believe it. There was also the Child Prostitution video. The article says the 2 workers were fired from ACORN.
Monday I saw that there was yet another sex slave case that ACORN HOUSING workers approved of in New York. You can't make this stuff up! This case involved 3 ACORN employees. None of which seemed to bat an eye at their illegal enterprise or keeping the money they earned from the prostitution hidden in their backyards! Talk about creative bookkeeping.
Is ACORN falling from grace? Will they have to give back their $4 billion or so in stimulus money?
Senator Mike Johannes of Nebraska called for an amendment to block Federal funding of Acorn also on Monday.
For over a year, Conservatives and Republicans couldn't get any traction on the ACORN voter fraud front or ACORN at all.
So what is going on?
