Obama is ACORN, and ACORN is Obama. Before reading this story, please remember that pertinent nugget. Obama defended ACORN as an attorney and he trained its leaders. He is in tight with the corrupt community organizing group.
Most important of all, he needs ACORN in 2010 when angry patriots come to the voting booths to rid the country of his socialist comrades who are destroying our country. Without ACORN, Democrats may have no means of cheating their way to victory in a close election.
Anyone remember the Minnesota Senate race in which Norm Coleman was in the lead, but that lead was stolen from him? How much of a factor was ACORN in that power grab?
That said, we find out that Obama's Justice Department has ruled that ACORN will receive government funding. What a surprise that in the Age of Corruption the most corrupt organization in the country will continue to be funded so it can continue in its corruption.

The Most Corrupt Administration in US History: NY TIMES: Attorney General Holder Says ACORN Can Be Funded by Federal Govmnt...
"Where are the defenders of our great nation? Where are our checks and balances? Where are the decent men elected to protect us from carpetbaggers like Obama and his criminal gang?
ACORN has been found guilty of voter fraud, illegal voter registration, conspiracy to traffic in child prostitution, human trafficking, and G-d knows what. My taxpayer dollars cannot be used to fund these vile criminals.
And they dump this on a Friday night during the Thanksgiving holiday. Who are these people?
NY TIMES: Attorney General Says ACORN Can Be Funded by Federal Govmnt...
WASHINGTON — 'The Justice Department has concluded that the Obama administration can lawfully pay the community group Acorn for services provided under contracts signed before Congress enacted a law banning the government from providing funds to the group.
The department’s conclusion, laid out in a recently disclosed five-page memorandum from David Barron, the acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel, adds a new wrinkle to a sharp political debate over the antipoverty group’s activities and recent efforts to distance the government from it.
Since 1994, Acorn, which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has received about $53 million in federal aid, much of it grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development for providing various services related to affordable housing.
But the group has become a prime target for conservative critics, and on Oct. 1, President Obama signed into law a spending bill that included a provision that said no taxpayer funds — including funds authorized by previous legislation — could be “provided to” the group or its affiliates.'
'Conservative critics' -- man, what asshats reside at the Times. Is 'rule of law' a conservative issue? Is prostitution, ripping off the government, child trafficking a progressive platform for liberals?
'A Housing and Urban Development lawyer asked the Justice Department whether the new law meant that pre-existing contracts with Acorn should be broken. But in a memorandum signed Oct. 23 and posted online this week, Mr. Barron said the government should continue to make payments to Acorn as required by such contracts.'
There's more. Read it.
