    Default ACORN Official Grabs $445 Million Grant From Obama Admin

    ACORN Official Grabs $445 Million Grant From Obama Admin
    June 10, 2012

    ACORN, the supposedly defunct organization defunded by Congress in the aftermath of James O’Keefe’s video exposing ACORN employees’ willingness to help out pimps and prostitutes attain government benefits, is back. As Judicial Watch has uncovered, the Obama administration offered $445 million to a former ACORN official as part of a $7.6 billion government program designed to help “unemployed or substantially underemployed” Americans make their mortgage payments.

    The ACORN official, Joe McGavin, is director of Hardest Hit, an Illinois program that received that massive Treasury infusion. Prior to his time at Hardest Hit, McGaven was director of counseling for ACORN Housing in Chicago, and the operations manager for Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA), an ACORN affiliate.

    While ACORN was supposedly cut off from taxpayers, the facts say otherwise. And this is just the latest indicator. As Judicial Watch reported, “ACORN got tens of thousands of dollars in grants to ‘combat housing and lending discrimination.’ The money came via Housing and Urban Development (HUD), which awarded a $79,819 grant to AHCOA.”

    Don’t be surprised to see the new, reorganized ACORN – now spread out across the country, without benefit of the ACORN label – play a role in the 2012 election cycle.

    Just in time for the election. This isn't about mortgages, it's about paying foot soldiers to ensure the ineligible halfrican gets enough live votes to match with the dead ones to ensure reelection.
    "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
    -- Theodore Roosevelt

    The maggots want everyone to vote, including the dead, moved, illegal alien and hell, even the friggin' Russians.

    Why don't we just let the whole stinkin' planet vote for President?

    I'm gonna say it... At what point has Obama and his administration just gone too far? No one with half a brain would think the millions given to ACORN have anything to do with housing opportunities. Obama is using taxpayer's hard earned income as his own personal funding source for whatever he wants. It's blatantly criminal and it has to stop. Any... way... possible...

    In fact, even if the money were used for the underprivileged, there isn't one component of the US Constitution that gives the executive branch or any other branch of government the power to use taxation in this manner. It's wrong and people need to start bringing this to the surface and stop rolling over.

    Feds give housing grant to ACORN affiliate despite federal ban

    Posted on August 16, 2013


    Judicial Watch: Feds give housing grant to ACORN affiliate despite federal ban | WashingtonExaminer.com.


    A spinoff of the scandal-ridden community organizer group ACORN received more than $200,000 in federal housing grants despite a ban on money going to ACORN affiliates, watchdog organization Judicial Watch announced Thursday.


    ACORN, which officially folded in 2009 after a string of scandals, rebranded into more than 100 spinoff groups, including Affordable Housing Centers of America — also now defunct — and Mission of Peace, an affordable housing nonprofit.


    In February, the Department of Housing and Urban Development transferred $201,222.07 from AHCOA to Mission of Peace “specifically to pay for the activities of former AHCOA affiliates,” according to a memo obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request.


    HUD approved the transfer despite a federal ban on tax dollars being used to fund any ACORN affiliate.


    “None of the funds made available under this Act or any prior Act may be provided to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, or allied organizations,” according to the 2010 budget appropriations act.

    There is no longer much of a way to prevent such things. We all know the gov have grown so large and spending so much that much of the country will not likely bitch because they are recipients of the spending. Morals are largely gone for many.
