BREAKING: It Turns Out Obama Gave ACORN $541K This Year, Not $80K
Big Government ^ | 7/11/11 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 07/11/2011 5:06:04 PM PDT by Nachum

Remember that story from a few days ago, the one about the Obama administration giving ACORN a $79,819 grant in March despite a federal law that prohibits the government from giving money to ACORN?

It turns out that sum is a lowball figure.

I discovered Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) gave ACORN another $461,086 in January. The funds were earmarked for ACORN Housing Corp. in January under HUD’s Self-help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP), according to the government website USAspending.gov.

In order words, the Obama administration gave fraud-ridden ACORN nearly a half million dollars to be used on housing development.

The administration isn’t even trying to conceal the fact that it gave this money to ACORN.

USAspending.gov identifies the recipient as “ACORN Housing Corporation Inc.” even though that nonprofit entity filed papers last year legally changing its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA).

Betting the 541K is also a low figure.

I’m thinking it’s time for Breitbart to break out some more of the ACORN sting videos he says he’s been saving. Git ‘em, git ‘em!

There is nothing ethical about this administration and those that support it. They are dirty, rotten snakes.

Atlanta has this big cheating teacher scandal going on (all are Democrats) where the “teachers” erased answers and filled in the correct ones for the youth. Do you have any doubt those same districts would commit massive voter fraud for what they think is a good self serving reason?

It is sick what our nation has become.

Didn't you hear? That was GW Bush's fault. Seriously. The "thinking" that the LSM pimped was that GW was to blame because he signed a law that made the testing mandatory. See, insisting teachers teach was what caused all this.

Not kidding.

PS I thinking forcing teachers to "teach to a test" stinks, but it's better than having teachers not teach at all. WAY better!

The money was given to ACORN apparently in defiance of Public Law 111-117 which spells out in pretty clear terms that ACORN shouldn’t be getting any government funding.

The level of corruption is staggering. On top of it all, he acts like a dictator, he doesn't have to observe the law.

He doesn't have a Constitutional bone in his body.

Why should he observe the law? We have shown him with the birth certificate issue that he can do anything and his skin color will protect him.

You know what the irony is? The leftwing knee jerk reaction would be to call you a racist because you referred to his skin color.

You are absolutely right. I would expand the definition of racist to include those who use color to get over on people.

Racism isn't a word anymore. It's a state of mind. A manipulative one at that.

The left can call me whatever they want to, and I simply don't care. The triviality of the term, the overuse, has had the effect of inoculating me. I'm immune.

I used to fear the term, but now I would just tell any one who dared to use the term at me, screw you.

I know who I am, and I reserve my judgment of people based on the individual. However, I am not ignorant of statistics that basically say the worse two segments of our population are leftist and blacks, with 90% of blacks overlapping into the leftist group.

I don’t know what the problem is with the majority of the US black population. I think the leftist welfare state destroying work ethic, family structure, morality and infusing a hatred and entitlement of that hatred against “whitey” is the core of the problem. It is horribly sad.

I have many good black friends who are good people and good parents or children of their parents. Most don’t have an ounce of the above traits. Several have some deep seeded issues from “community” pressures and pressures from how they were told they should act and feel.

It is horribly sad. Leftist, Satan have twisted and broken so many people throughout our country and the world.

I was on another forum and some guy pulled the race card. I told him I didn't hate black people; I told him that I believed we had a lousy president who just happened to be black. Ended that debate real fast.
