Naturally. Of course. Not surprised. Wouldn’t have expected anything less.
The same guy who led us down the primrose path on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is now out there as ACORN’s loudest supporter.
ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, may have pulled off the most widespread voter fraud in American history last year. They’re being investigated or have already been convicted in 14 states.
In response, Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachman proposed an entirely reasonable amendment that would have barred any organization under federal indictment from receiving funds from the mortgage reform bill.
But blatantly Barney Frank, ACORN’s congressional sugar daddy, saw to it that the amendment was removed, defeated, condemned to the ash heap of history. Remarkably, ACORN will now have access to up to $8.5 billion (with a “b”) from President Obama’s various “stimulus” schemes.
Frank claims ACORN isn’t eligible for any of the moneyOf course, this is the same guy who defended Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and had a prostitution ring operating out of his condo.
Apparently the prostitution ring is still operating, but has moved its headquarters to Washington, DC.
