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 Obamas 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 HUDs 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 isnt 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).
