CSR Gives ACORN Clean A Bill Of Health

From Fox News:

ACORN Properly Spent Federal Funds, Congressional Study Says

By Chad Pergram – FOXNews.com

The beleaguered community organizing group ACORN properly spent all federal dollars it received in the past five years, according to a study by the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service (CRS).

We should probably stop right there. This finding should be enough to forever prevent the CRS from being called “nonpartisan.”

The report, requested by House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., also found that no voters who were allegedly registered to vote improperly cast any ballots

The CRS said officials have probed ACORN 46 times.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, has asked Conyers to hold hearings to scrutinize ACORN’s activities but Conyers has declined.

ACORN came under fire in September when a series of undercover videos showed a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute receiving advice from ACORN employees on how to evade tax laws. offices.

The CRS report indicated that the filming may have violated laws in Maryland and California, where some of the taping was done. The CRS study says both states "appear to ban private recording of face to face conversations absent the consent of all the participants."

Oh, yeah. The CRS is “nonpartisan,” all right.

As nonpartisan as John Conyers.

    ACORN is much too valuable to the statists in Washington to let it die.

    Didn’t Martha Stewart and Lucky Libby Owens Ford Scooter or whatever the guy’s name is go to jail for lying and not breaking the law.

    What is different with registering nonexistent people or someone twice even if the person doesn’t vote.

    For one thing, registering to vote in error wastes the registrar’s time and money…never mind, only I might care.

    In 99.9% of cases in which Congress wants to find out if appropriated funds have been misused, the job is given to the truly non-partisan Government Accountability Office (formerly Government Accounting Office) (GAO).

    This is the agency known as the “Congressional Watchdog” and the “Investigative Arm of Congress.”

    Any questions?
