ACORN Can Still Be Paid

Congress voted to stop paying taxpayer money to the liberal support group ACORN. This took place after damning videos were released which showed members of that corrupt organization showing a pimp and prostitute how to avoid the law, how to avoid taxes, and how to bring underage girls into the country to use for prostitution.

Attorney General Eric Holder has weighed in on the matter and has ruled that ACORN may still be paid under terms of contracts that existed prior to the Congressional ban.

If Congress voted to cut funding why is it OK to continue to pay them? Are we to believe that the contracts were made with the non-corrupt branch of this organization?

Seems to me that if a defense contractor was found to be breaking the law and Congress voted to cut funding then contracts would not be paid.

It looks like Obama’s AG figured a way to continue paying the corrupt organization our hard earned money. ACORN is a partisan group that supports Democrats and only Democrats. The government gives them our money to do just that.

Big Government has been on this story and has clearly demonstrated that ACORN is a wing of the Democrat party. Documents that ACORN threw away in order to destroy evidence shows that they work to get Democrats elected. It is time to stop giving them any taxpayer money.

And it is time for the Executive Branch to stop usurping the authority of Congress.

    The libbies have to find a way around the laws that prohibit ACORN’S funding, because it was only through the corrupt efforts of this thuggish organization that Barama was elected in the first place, so Holder and the other lackeys of this pretender in chief have to find a way for ACORN to exist- they are, after all, the other half of that thuggish, dumb-a$$ union, SEIU- and we know that Barry likes to kiss SEIU’S posterior at least once a day.
    It is his mecca.

    “…it was only through the corrupt efforts of this thuggish organization that Barama was elected in the first place…”

    I don’t suppose you want to prove that in any way? What efforts are you talking about?

    I guess it’s no surprise. You’ve got company in your lunacy:

    PPP’s newest national survey finds that a 52% majority of GOP voters nationally think that ACORN stole the Presidential election for Barack Obama last year, with only 27% granting that he won it legitimately.

    The funny thing I like to point out is that if you gave every state to McCain that Obama won by less than 10% then McCain still loses. If you want to claim foul play youa’re taking an insanely large scale operation that would leave a good size footprint and a decent paper trail. The level of delusion in the GOP is amazing to me.

      While I am sure ACORN played a part in votes I do not think they made a difference in the outcome, like they did with Franken, but I find it funny how you and your ilk still brood over the 2000 presidential election. I am sure an even larger portion of Democrats think Bush lost in Florida and that the election was stolen, a claim that has been disproved time and again.

      You were one of them, as I recall.

      Not worried about ACORN. The Democrats are the best vote-getters Republicans have right now.

      • Adam says:

        That you even feel the 2000 and 2008 elections are similar is a laugher. This whole bit about Obama stealing it just proves more of my view that you Conservatives know no other attacks except to parrot the opposite of how you saw or thought you saw Bush treated.

        Obama was called the worst president ever, a miserable failure, and that was just on day one. Then you started calling him a nazi and protesting him in the streets for destroying our country. That was followed by saying he’s politicized the white house too much. Now, the ultimate in mimicry is accusing Obama of stealing the election. Keep it up. It worked out so well for the Democrats in 2002 and 2004.

    Which part of I don’t think they made a difference int he outcome leads you to believe I am saying that they stole an election?

    I am saying that you are quick to dismiss legitimate concerns over a corrupt organization while running around screaming about the 2000 election that has been shown time and again not to have been stolen. You can’t admit that and you show it here by sayin that the two are not comparable.

    I guess that voter fraud is only unacceptable when you think Republicans are doing it but is OK when people accuse Democrats of doing it.

    And where was your outrage when your party was out with Bush Hitler signs? There were many more than we have seen of Obama or do you get your news from the MSM and failed to see them?

    As for protesting in the streets, a First Amendment right that I seem to remember you use to brag about (at your old website) when you took place in your liberal protests. You bragged about burning a Flag. Funny how you don’t think everyone is entitled to the same rights as you.

    I never saw where you defended Bush from the chimp, Nazi, Hitler pictures or even the picture of a retard. I guess it was OK then.

    Consequently, I happen to feel people have the right even if I don’t like it. Too bad you only believe in rights as long as they agree with you and how you feel.

      That “you” was meant more as a general conservative you, not you in the specific. That’s my fault for the confusion.

      The 2000 election was a shady election and you can pretend otherwise and compare it to an election with an unquestionable outcome all you want but you’re wrong.

      Where do I defend voter fraud? Please point it out. My only stance is the level of fraud required to change this election would have been so great that it would have been exposed long ago. It just didn’t happen that way, no matter what the 73% rube conservatives think it did.

      I’m not outraged by Obama Hitler signs any more than I was outraged by Bush Hitler signs. Were you outraged by them?

      Do I get my news from the MSM? You mean do I get it from legitimate sources as opposed trash sources like WorldNetDaily?

      As I said with voter fraud please point out where I said you shouldn’t protest or you can’t or it isn’t protected speech?

      I just think it’s awfully convenient that every attack on Obama appears to be a mirror of attacks on Bush. Just saying you should branch out, find your own path…

      • Big Dog says:

        I don’t know, perhaps it was the way you worded you comment that made it sound like there was something wrong with protesting.

        It odes not matter if the level of fraud required was enough or not, what matters is that there was any level and it was done by a group using taxpayer money.

        There were plenty of hinky things that gave Obama the election. Voter fraud was present but it is unlikely that it was enough to make a difference.

        Though when ACORN is busing college kids from one state to another and when they are admitting that they voted in more than one state what is one to think?

        WND is ONE source of information among many. It is no worse than HuffPo or Kos. In fact, it is better than those.

        Funny though, many things that were discussed there and other places are bearing fruit…

        Now that we have all the global warming science fraud going on it seems like things will be changing.

        Sooner or later it all comes back to bite one’s a$$. It all will, eventually.

          “There were plenty of hinky things that gave Obama the election.”

          If by hinky you mean millions more young people and minority voters going to the polls to slap down Republican after Republican, then you’re right. Otherwise that’s just what we call democracy. Maybe your side can return the favor in 2010 but I wouldn’t count my chickens before they hatched.

          I’m still looking forward to seeing how Blake figures ACORN’s actions were the reason Obama was elected…
