ACORN Slated To
Get Nearly $4 Billion

... in Obama's fiscal 2011 budget

by Anathhartmann - February 10th, 2010 - Washington Times

To add to the list of outrageous earmarks in Obama's fiscal 2011 budget, ACORN, the embezzlement-prone, voter-registration-fraud-plagued, leftist community organizing group, is slated to receive nearly $4 billion from a taxpayer-funded slush fund.

The money will come from the Community Development Block Grant, one of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's longest-running programs. The HUD Web site cryptically defines the grant's purpose as providing "communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs," not a reassuring description given the group's recent past history of aiding the community through gratuitous missappropriation of funds.

Despite congressional attempts to cut off funding to this notoriously corrupt organization, ACORN always seems to find new ways to feed at the government trough. Barack Obama helped to train ACCORN in their use of Saul Alinsky techniques to extort money from the taxpayers and he continues to have a soft spot for their "community organizing" efforts.
