Skip to comments.Taxpayer gets his day in court against ACORN on Tuesday
Posted on 12/18/2009 10:29:09 AM PST by FromLori
A hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday before Judge Nina Gershon on whether Congress can ban federal funds to ACORN. Rep. Darrell Issa, ranking Republican on the House Government Reform committee, released this statement:
Next week, the federal government has the opportunity to vigorously defend what the President signed and Congress overwhelmingly passeda bipartisan recognition that ACORN is not fit to receive federal funds to perform duties on behalf of the American people. After hearing the government's case, hopefully Judge Gershon will reconsider her previous ruling and the taxpayers will no longer be forced to subsidize this criminal organization."
Last Friday, Gershon enjoined the government from cutting off ACORN's federal funds, calling the provision of law an unconstitutional bill of attainder.

Impeach that stupid ass judge. Cut all funding to the federal courts until they quit being stupid.
