Glenn Beck is doing the job the MSM won’t do: Investigating the thoroughly corrupt, and heavily subsidized left-wing group, ACORN. You can skip to about 2:50 on the first video:

Just so you know how much the Dems in Congress appreciate ACORN’s efforts:
ACORN-ELIGIBLE BLOCK GRANTS
DIP: $1 Billion in Stimulus: “For an additional amount for `Community Development Fund’ $1,000,000,000, to remain available until September 30, 2010 to carry out the community development block grant program under title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.)” (H.R.1, Enrolled As Agreed To By Both House And Senate)
RE-DIP: $3.9 Billion in Omnibus: “The bill provides $3,900,000,000 for the Community Development Fund…” (“Division I – Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2009; Joint Explanatory Statement” Rules Committee, U.S. House Of Representatives, Pg. 106)
$5.7 Billion for the Obama Youth Corps.
Okay, I’m just getting around to watching the videos, now, and I am stunned (not really) to hear Beck say that Conyers has backed down from investigating ACORN after promising to do so.
Michelle Malkin has the story.
I appreciate Karen Inman for suggesting that no more taxpayer money should be going to ACORN.
It’s clear that ACORN is populated with many decent, well meaning people, who are mainly interested in empowering the disadvantaged, but ACORN is obviously a huge money making racket, and has made dupes out of these well meaning people.
Scroll down from here to see all previous posts at Nice Deb concerning ACORN.
And John Fund has still MORE on ACORN’s voter fraud at the WSJ.
