An ACORN COVER UP?????


Judge: ACORN Entitled to Taxpayer Money


NEW YORK -- Despite being plagued by scandals and accusations of corruption, ACORN should get its money.

That's what a federal judge has said in a ruling stating that the embattled community activist group is entitled to taxpayer money after all.

U.S. District Judge Nina Gerson said Wednesday that Congress acted unconstitutionally when it tried to stop federal funding of the troubled group last fall.

In her ruling, she said it was "unmistakable that Congress determined ACORN's guilt before defunding it. ACORN alone was singled out for adverse treatment."

She said there is a process when federal contractors can be suspended or cut off and that wasn't followed.


Congress moved to stop taxpayer money from going to ACORN following a series of undercover videos released in September that showed employees of the group appearing to offer tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute.

ACORN applauded the judge's ruling.

"The court's ruling and ACORN's vindication in other forums make clear why the protections of our Constitution are so dear -- all of us suffer when a politically motivated frenzy feeds a rush to judgment," ACORN chief executive Bertha Lewis said in a written statement.

"After nearly two years of continual attack by the extreme right -- aided by many who should have known better -- ACORN has now been exonerated in many forums. The dedicated volunteers and organizers who have worked with ACORN will continue our efforts to create a more fair and just nation."

ACORN has been under fire for nearly two years now, accused of misusing funds for political purposes and voter registration fraud. It faces criminal charges in a Nevada voter registration case, among a variety of other allegations. ACORN says it's the victim of political attacks.

Despite Gershon's ruling that the government should open the financial floodgates for ACORN, troubles continue for the group.

New documents released Thursday by Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates government corruption, reveal that the Obama Justice Department shut down a federal investigation into ACORN last year, claiming the group broke no laws.

Judicial Watch said it has obtained documents showing that the FBI and Justice Department opened an investigation into two specific complaints alleging corruption and voter registration fraud in Stamford and Bridgeport, Conn.

In Stamford, Republican Registrar Lucy Corelli said her office rejected 300 of 1,200 ACORN voter registration cards because of "duplicates, underage, illegible and invalid address," causing $20,000 in extra work. In Bridgeport, Republican Registrar Joseph Borges said an ACORN drive "produced over 100 rejections due to incomplete forms and individuals who were not citizens."

The Justice Department noted that ACORN had engaged in "questionable hiring and training practices" but closed the case.

"These documents reflect systematic voter registration fraud by ACORN. It is a scandal that there has been no comprehensive criminal investigation and prosecution by the Justice Department into this evident criminal conduct," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a written statement.

"Given President Obama's close connections to ACORN, including his campaign's hiring of the ACORN's Project Vote organization, it seems rather obvious why Attorney General Holder has failed to seriously investigate these and other alleged ACORN criminal activities."
