    Yup.. amid all the corruption the taxpayers should just keep supporting Acorn.. sounds fair......:lol:

    NEW YORK — A federal judge who found it unconstitutional that Congress tried to cut funding to the activist group ACORN has rejected a government request to change her mind and has ordered government agencies to make it clear the funding isn't blocked.

    In a written ruling Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon made permanent her conclusion last year that the cutoff of funding was unconstitutional. She ordered all federal agencies to put the word out about it.

    That's the rub. No one has shown any corruption on ACORN's part. They've had some ditzy employees, but as for as the organization's leadership and policies, nothing...nada.... Unless you know something the rest of us (and the judge) don't.

    wingnut should read his own links:

    for the comprehension-impaired, all she said was that there had to be an administrative process SHOWING that funds had misused...

    oh noooooooooo due process.

    why do the freaktards hate law?

    Well ACORN didn't do anything illegal in this instance. All they did was give advice to someone on how TO DO SOMETHING illegal. Big difference. The Congress had a meltdown and the was plenty of bad pr so they cut funding.

    Acorn seems to have some ditzy and somewhat dishonest employees but I guess you can't blame ACORN for that. Lots of companies have dishonest, ditzy employees.

    However. They are under investigation in 4-5 States for voter fraud and who knows what else. Will have to see how these come out.

    And with all of that, DOJ, OKeefe's sting operation, GOP congresspeople complaining, and all of the negative PR..........still no finding of wrongdoing.
