    Maybe you can point to the enumerated power that gives congress the authority to fund ACORN, genius?

    giving it away in the first place was a separate issue. the issue of penalzing a company after without any due process is whats at hand here though

    It's not penalizing a company stripping them of funds they are not entitled to in the first place.
