Firefighters lose large grant to ACORN
Nearly $1 million in Homeland Security funding typically earmarked for fire departments has been awarded to ACORN, despite a clear signal from Congress that it intends to cut off federal funding to the embattled group.
The money, formally awarded for fiscal year 2008, was given to the ACORN Institute, which bills itself as a research and training facility "to combat the poverty, discrimination and community deterioration that keeps low-income people from taking advantage of their rights and opportunities."Your tax dollars are going to a thoroughly corrupt organization that uses any means necessary, including voter fraud, to elect Democrats. This government-sanctioned, institutionalized corruption to create one-party rule is right out of a banana republic.
