It’s a start!
No more taxpayer funding for this corrupt racket.
Cut ’em all off NOW.
Repeat after me: ACORN is a criminal enterprise.
House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) today applauded U.S. Census Bureau Director Robert Grovesâ€™ decision to terminate its partnership with ACORN in conducting the 2010 Census: â€śACORN had no business working on the Census. ACORNâ€™s partisan election efforts and its involvement in criminal conduct rightly disqualified it from working on the non-partisan mission of the Census to accurately and honestly count the U.S. population,â€ť said Rep. Issa. â€śHad ACORN been allowed to submit fraudulent information to the Census, it could have changed the boundaries of Congressional districts and altered Federal funding decisions to states and local communities. I applaud Census Bureau Director Robert Groves for making this independent decision following mounting evidence of wrongdoing by ACORN.â€ť
Here’s the PDF of the Census Director’s letter to ACORN’s Maude Hurd.
Takeaway quotes from letter: “Over the last several months, through ongoing communication with our regional offices, it is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with 2010 Census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has ineed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 Census efforts. While not decisive factors in this decision, recent events concerning several local offices of ACORN have added to the worsening negative perceptions of ACORN and its affiliation with our partnership efforts.”
Bottom line: “We no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your offices.”
