ACORN has recently been indicted in Nevada and Pennsylvannia as well as ten other states, yet the organization is in line to receive at least $8,000,000,000 in federal funds. To correct this egregious example of corruption, Michele Bachmann (R MN) introduced an amendment in the House Committee on Financial Services to prevent appropriated money going to any group that has been indicted or convicted of fraud. It quickly passed. Then Barney Frank got to thinking about it and saw that the amendment was eviscertated. Read Bachmann's op-ed in the Washington Times to get the full details. Rumors, indictments, and convictions follow this group everywhere it appears, yet ACORN only gains in influence. It will participate in the 2010 Census by providing workers and oversight. And some of them have begun work already in preparation for 2010.
