Obama Restores Cash-Strapped ACORN’s Funding

Obama Restores Cash-Strapped ACORN’s Funding As Reward For HealthCare Support

By Matthew Vadum on 3.20.10

President Obama has quietly moved behind the scenes to restore full
funding to the radical group ACORN, which was his former employer and legal client.

In a move ignored by the media, OMB director Peter Orszag circulated a directive to federal agencies ordering them to begin funding ACORN again. ACORN is the hyperpartisan lead group in the Health Care for America Now (HCAN) coalition and has long supported a government takeover of the U.S. health care system.

The fiscal floodgates will soon re-open for ACORN despite a
congressional ban on funding the activist group that has long been a
practitioner of election fraud.

In a March 16 memo Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Peter Orszag ordered federal agencies to resume funding the group
whose employees were caught on hidden camera videos last year condoning and encouraging a variety of crimes including child prostitution and tax evasion.

The memo came a week after renegade 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 memo also came despite the fact that the Department of Justice is planning to appeal Gershon’s ruling and seek a stay pending appeal.

ACORN is under indictment in Nevada for election fraud. Jury selection in set to begin in the summer in Las Vegas.

ACORN is also teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. The New York Times noticed this fact only today and got around to reporting it four months after I reported it right here at TAS.

    The funding should never have been stopped. If ACORN was helping rich white people it would never have been investigated. A few bad apples doesn’t mean we defund an entire organization that does nothing but good for the poor. Whether they are black or white. Why y’all always on the wrong side of history? I just don’t get it!!

    That’s the problem exPatriot, You just don’t get it. ACORN is a dishonest group who are lining their own pockets and it’s run by thugs who never give an accounting of where the money goes. They’re involved in crooked voting scams. Why is it you always champion everything and everyone who are crooked. The “poor” don’t benefit from any moneys that ACORN gets. Only the crooks running it benefit, thanks to the hard working tax payers.
