Census Drops Criminal Group ACORN

The criminal organization ACORN, which has long and close ties to Barack Obama, has been shunned by the U.S. Census Bureau. ACORN was slated to help the Census Bureau until today, but there were already more than enough reasons to disassociate the federal government from ACORN, which receives millions of our taxpayer dollars annually for "community organizing" work. THE FINAL STRAW, however, was the shocking video tape of two ACORN workers giving advice on a hidden camera to people posing as a pimp and a prostitute. The ACORN women advised them how to conceal underaged, illegally imported girls for prostitution, how to cheat on taxes, and more. The Democrat Party has empowered this den of weasels for far too long. Perhaps they are finally about to be broken. Politico reports: ACORN's incredibly sloppy voter registration operation got it repeatedly into hot water last fall.... The latest ACORN expose, in which a conservative producer and his partner got two ACORN employees to give him advice on running his prostitution business and evading taxes with their underage Latin American prostitutes (really) has dealt the organization a final blow as far as the Obama administration is concerned: The Census has chosen to stop working with the group, with Census Director Robert Groves writing ACORN President Maude Hurd that public "concern" about the group has become "a distraction from our mission" and that recent events -- an apparent reference to the expose -- has "added to worsening negative perceptions of ACORN." From Breitbart: The decision comes on the heels of Andrew Breitbart's release of two undercover video investigations, which found ACORN employees in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. more than happy to aid and abet underaged prostitution with advice on tax status, getting grants, and avoiding notice by law enforcement.
