Acorn Funding Restored: Acorn Funding Slips under the Radar

Peter Orszag, Obama's director of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) ordered resumed funding  for ACORN. With recent news that ACORN, a community organizing group that Barack Obama once worked for has gone underground, changed their tainted name...and somehow is back in the saddle with taxpayer monies.

After several ACORN offices across the U.S. were videotaped giving advice on how to avoid paying business taxes and how to hide the fact that the business was prostitution of 13-year-old girls smuggled into the U.S., Congress cut off funding.

ACORN took it to court and won a temporary injunction by Judge Nina Gershon, which has now turned into a permanent injunction.

ACORN has been charged with election fraud in Nevada. Two ACORN workers in Wisconsin are charged with election fraud. Ohio has filed a RICO suit against ACORN. Read here about ACORN's fraudulent voter registrations. Read Gateway Pundit for Obama's past association with ACORN. Read BigGovernment for a link to Orszag's letter directing the spigot open, and asks why the DOJ cannot achieve a stay in this case until the appeal is concluded.
