The Obama administration has showered its allies at ACORN Housing with $729,849 so far this year despite powerful, newly unveiled evidence of corruption and massive accounting irregularities at the longtime affiliate of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now).

Watchdog group Cause of Action recently pressured NeighborWorks America, a taxpayer-funded federal nonprofit that funneled more than $26.5 million in federal foreclosure-avoidance money to ACORN Housing, to disclose an internal audit furnished to then-Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, Connecticut Democrat, late last year.

The to do list for 2013 is absolutely huge. People need to be put in jail. This slap on the wrist stuff has got to stop.

That fraudulently criminal prick should be thrown in jail, and the key to his cell melted into the shackles he'll wear for life.

That was why I wanted Palin to be President so badly... so we could be sure that Bukkaki O'Bunga would do hard time.

I don’t think even Palin would break the “tradition” of prosecuting a former president for corruption.

Now, the left REALLY wanted to do it to Bush,
and they would, because historically, this is what leftists do - criminalize political opposition.

You’re wrong. She’d have made an example of him within one year of taking office. And he’d have had alot of company.

Probably not, but she does have a track record of both imprisoning criminal politicians AND keeping her campaign promises.
