Remember ACORN?

ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) closed its doors a couple of years ago after a nationwide controversy.  It was alleged (and proved to my personal satisfaction) to be a far-Left, unprincipled, dishonest organization that would do anything and go to any lengths to ensure that its objectives were achieved.  It's reported to have been actively involved in voter fraud prior to the 2008 elections that brought President Obama to office, although this has yet to be prosecuted in an appropriate court.  I hope that will happen one day.

Be that as it may, the organization as such was effectively shut down in 2010.  However, like the manifold heads of the mythical Hydra, it seems that its members have simply continued their operations under different names.  The poison they represent in the American body politic is still doing its damage.  Cause of Action has uncovered the names of no less than 174 organizations that are offshoots of ACORN or are otherwise continuing its work.

It's worth your while to click over there and go through the list for yourself.  If you find one or more of these organizations at work in your area during the current election campaign, expect problems.

I'm still flumoxed as to how a political group could get funding through the government.

You obviously have that insider understanding. Could you write a post, outlining the law that allowed this travesty.

Yep, change the name to protect the guilty (literally in this case), and keep on lying, stealing and buying votes!
