Skip to comments.Democratic Ally Group Linked to Voter Fraud Gets Money from New Housing Bill (Obama's ACORN)

This is deeply troubling. Acorn is responsible for voter fraud in several states. They pay their workers a fee to register new voters. They have been found to sign up people who are convicted felons, illegal immigrants, dead people, etc. Several people from multiple states have been indicted. Acorn is closely affiliated with the Democratic party and they have also been found to throw out Republican registration forms -- leaving citizens unable to vote on election day. It is a disgrace that any taxpayer money would go to such a corrupt group.
The housing bill signed Wednesday by President George W. Bush will provide a stream of billions of dollars for distressed homeowners and communities and the nonprofit groups that serve them.
One of the biggest likely beneficiaries, despite Republican objections: Acorn, a housing advocacy group that also helps lead ambitious voter-registration efforts benefiting Democrats.
The organization's main advocacy group lobbied hard for passage of the housing bill, which provides nearly $5 billion for affordable housing, financial counseling and mortgage restructuring for people and neighborhoods affected by the housing meltdown. A third Acorn arm, its housing corporation, does a large share of that work on the ground.
Then, some wonder why there is the lack of passion for the Party in the conservative base.
Is this an indication that GOVERNMENT is CORRUPT? I ssay ‘yes”...what say you?
The loss of integrity within our electoral system is the greatest internal threat to this nation.
“Representative Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota), a member of the House Financial Services Committee, says she finds it “unconscionable” that the legislation included funding for the two groups, which serve as political action arms of the Democratic Party.”
