Government Report Absolves ACORN of Voter Fraud

Wow. Looky here, looky here. Previously, both internal and congressional reports have shown not only no illegal activity by ACORN... but a new federal report shows nothing resulting from the original charge of voter fraud either.

In fact, the only illegal activity... comes from Andrew Breitbart's fake pimp and ho wannabe videographers.

A newly-issued Congressional Research Service (CRS) study (pdf) on the activities of the community group ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) found no evidence the group has engaged in fraudulent voting or violations of federal financing rules over the last five years. Two members of the U.S. House of Representatives ordered the study after conservatives accused ACORN of conducting voter registration fraud in poor neighborhoods and contributing to the country's financial crisis by "pushing the banking system into a sinkhole of bad loans." The accusations led some members of Congress to push to cut off the group's federal funding.

A Federal District Court Judge recently ruled that cutting ACORN's funding was an illegal bill of attainder against the group, a term that refers to Congress targeting punishment at specific individuals or organizations. The CRS report also said that conservative activists may have broken privacy laws in two states when they secretly videotape an encounter with ACORN representatives while posing as a pimp and a prostitute, to see what kind of advice ACORN representatives would offer them about evading taxes and hiding their activities.

Sorry, but the Center for Media and Democracy is flat-out wrong. Try reading through the actual report, rather relying than the center's whitewashed account of it. There are literally dozens of voter-fraud investigations listed in the report, as well as many other investigations of ACORN-related violations of various federal and state laws. You can go on pretending there's nothing rotten with the state of ACORN, but the public knows better.

When you get a conviction, lemme know.

ACORN is getting its funding restored. And at this point, it doesn't look good for Andy Breitbart and pimpy/ho team.
