From the Washington Times:
It only reinforces my belief that ACORN services Congress with bribes, campaign contributions, drugs, whores, boys, girls and anything else that these lying bastards want.
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 grant to ACORN's Louisiana office became public on Oct. 2, less than three weeks after the House and Senate voted to cut off ACORN funding after employees were caught on video advising a fake prostitute and pimp on scams.
It just makes sense that corrupt politicians are in bed with ACORN; that the ACORN chief organizer, Bertha Lewis, feels free to display her hubris so openly for all to see. She knows that a significant number of high powered pols are dependant upon her keeping her mouth shut.
It was one of only three such grants issued to the state and made up almost 80 percent of the firefighting money earmarked for Louisiana, prompting one of the U.S. senators from the state to demand that the funds be taken back.
"I request that you rescind this grant based on a history of abuse of federal dollars by ACORN and their clear lack of expertise in this area," said Sen. David Vitter, Louisiana Republican.
I do not trust Senator Vitter as he made his presence known by his absence when the Senate voted to deny funding to ACORN several weeks ago. A missed flight was the reason given for his absence.
Pray for the State of Louisiana; pray for Gov. Bobby Jindal and State Attorney General Buddy Caldwell to uncover the festering rats nest that is ACORN. It doesn't seem that anyone else in Louisiana will.
