Democrats just can't stay away from ACORN. Even as scandal piles on top of scandal, they continue to embrace the organization. The latest is that the Senate just confirmed Patrick Corvington as chief executive of the Corporation for National and Community Service. Corvington and ACORN have quite the history as Matthew Vadum notes:

That is all democrats know....scandal. Without it, their lives are empty and incomplete.

the media are trying to play it like that, but the only evidence for that is that the Whale endorsed nobo. “Their” official biographer got really angry with Cris Matthews for suggesting it

The FY 2011 budget for this includes a staff increase of 85,000 to 105,000, and a monetary increase from 2010 of 1,054M to 1,298M.

But Border Patrol and the Coast Guard get cut.

They will continue to attempt to get as much money from the government as they can prior to the Mid-Terms. After the Mid-Term elections, they will most likely be cut off.

Exactly but the question is will they steal the elections with rides to vote for Obama with a free lap top driving state to state voting for him? I don’t think they could organize for the Mass. Special election. They are organizing now for an Obama win, revolt or not.

President Proposes Budget Increase for National Service

On February 1, President Obama released his Fiscal Year 2011 budget request for the Corporation for National and Community Service. The $1.4 billion request will strengthen our nation’s volunteer sector, foster innovation and civic engagement, and mobilize more than six million Americans to solve critical problems through national service.

One way to trim the budget is cut all government workers by 10% per year.

This is the only hiring going on in our current economy. More taxpayer’s dollars going into a black hole.

Looks like they hired 135,000 people to find people work? and even pay for relocation, food, childcare, rent etc. etc. etc .

Two people I’m aware of both decided to return to school...both went to same classes and often studied together. One paid her own way...the other paid by Americorp...Both passed those classes.

status to date...the one who paid for her own classes has now gone on to get her degree and is working in the field of which those classes prepared her for. The Ameri-corp gal continues to turn down solid job offers and remains working at a retail store...excuses every opportunity offered her.

Links from this site also proved interesting.....looks like this whole thing is about hiring people to help people where there are already agencies which do this..and so 135,000 gov. jobs we’re paying these folks to do what’s already being done.....looks like they are surely up to far more than helping....

Fascists. They employ crooks , just like in Germany of the 1920s and 1930s.

Now this Corporation is nothing but a Dem "get out the vote" front.

I will gve themcommunity service. They do not need my tax dollars doinng it.

I'd rather have NASA than this wimp organization of socialist prigs, training our kids top be communists.

Yep.

The Corporation’s FY 2011 budget request of $1.416 billion will strengthen our nation’s volunteer sector, foster innovation and civic engagement, and mobilize more than six million Americans to solve critical problems through national service.

Corruption as usual. Now they just rub it in our faces knowing we can’t do dip about it. The fed.gov enablers and ACORN are immune from prosecution. Nothing else could explain their bold and overt corruption where billions of taxpayer dollars flow into their coffers.

Heck, some high court even ruled that the fed.gov had to give them the money inspite of their exposed corruption. That court offered that to not pass the taxpayer bucks would be discriminatory.
