More Funding for ACORN in Budget

Investors Business Daily: Acorn-ucopia

Didn’t Acorn, the corrupt community organizer, get its federal funding yanked after its last scandal? Actually, no. Through municipal middlemen, it’s poised to rake in another $4 billion. Where is the outrage?

You’d think a group implicated in dozens of electoral fraud cases, theft of funds and, most recently, helping criminals interested in bringing child prostitutes to the U.S. would have been ruled ineligible for federal aid long ago.

But think again, because these aid rats are experts at survival.

FrontPage magazine reports that federal Judge Nina Gershon ruled that Acorn is eligible for the Obama administration’s proposed $4 billion in Housing and Urban Development grants within the $3.83 trillion federal budget proposal for 2011.

That cancels the ban Congress placed on Acorn funding late last year after at least five of the group’s offices willingly aided undercover reporters posing as a pimp and prostitute to get federal funding for a brothel and cheat on their taxes.

Do we even have to ask why?

    4 billion dollars, merely the cost of what could be spent to build another CVN, or better yet, pay down/slow down the debt.

    slcraig,

    Jeff Schreiber is a law student and is NOT an obot, clearly understands that President Obama is a natural born citizen. Perhaps, since you do not believe PJ lawyers, you might believe Mr. Schreiber. Here is his blog:

    Below is Mr. Schreiber’s comments from Donofrio’s blog.

    excerpts
    “More from Mr. Schreiber:

    “Secondly, United States law clearly provides now—as it did in August of 1961—that an individual born in the United States is both a ‘natural born citizen’ and ’subject to U.S. jurisdiction.’ ”

    Mr. Schreiber continues:
    “If that child was born in the United States, the nationality of that child’s parents has no impact whatsoever on his status as a natural born citizen of the United States of America, dual citizenship be damned; this, of course, is at the heart of the debate over “anchor babies” and illegal immigration.”

    Mr Schreiber continues:

    “Nevertheless, Donofrio suggests that it doesn’t matter what Obama’s birth certificate says because his father was a Kenyan national, but in fact it does. If Obama was born in Honolulu as he maintains (I’d still like to see a long-form birth certificate, of course), he is a natural born citizen.””

    Jeff Schreiber paid attention in his constitutional law classes.

    Wonderful.

    Elspeth — Thank you!

    Jeff — Still makes you wonder what information is on the long form that is so bad that he would spend millions of dollars to keep it concealed! That goes for his other sealed background information as well.

    The ONLY thing we know about this guy is what he has said about himself.

  5. Gail B. says:

    Why are we funding an organization that is not a department of the federal government?

  6. SHAM says:

    When does my group, A-THORN, get it’s funding?
    Oh yeh, I am white.

    Gail, why not?, it’s all funny money.
    My three month old grandson can’t speak up yet.

    9:35 thru 12:52, If we are to be called birthers, should not Obama be called an obfuscator in the same breath???? Should not EVERY presidents every constitutional qualification, of which there are so very few, be available to the public, seeing as it is the most important job in the world?

  10. Karla says:

    I do think it strange that Obama would spend over 1.5 million (and growing) to keep his records a secret. Why not buy a beach house in Hawaii,a Rolls Royce or help homeless children with the money? What are his intentions? Is he trying to hide something, or is he just enjoying creating tensions and discord among Americans? I can think of no postive reason for the secrecy. Common sense should make people question his motives. We require proof of citizenship from a janitor, why not a president? Duhhhh… The finger needs to be pointed at the person maintaining the secrecy, not the people questioning, “Why the secrecy?”
