After Census Severs Ties, ACORN May Face Scrutiny of Housing Grants - Political News - FOXNews.com
Conservatives have cheered the Census Bureau's decision to sever ties with ACORN because it had lost confidence in the group, but the hidden-camera videos that prompted ACORN to fire four workers this week could raise more questions about the federal funding ACORN receives for housing outreach.
ACORN Housing Corporation received $1.6 million to provide housing services to low-income communities in this fiscal year, ending Sept. 30, according to USASpending.gov, a federal government Web site for tracking government grants.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development Grants has given $8.2 million to ACORN in the years between 2003 and 2006, as well as $1.6million to ACORN affiliates.
I think it is time we honestly look very closely at ACORN's activities. Needless to say, I agree with the Census Bureau's decision to sever its ties with ACORN.
