What Budget Problems? Illinois, Federal Government Funnel Millions to Acorn Operatives

Illinois Review 5 September 2012 No Comment

ACORN is still alive!  According to CJ Ciaramella of The Washington Free Beacon,”many of ACORN’s affiliates, allies, and old chapters remain active under different names—and at least two have received federal dollars—despite the left-wing community-organizing group’s official dissolution and ban on receiving federal funds, according to a new report.”

Ciaramella also pointed out in his column, published yesterday, that “Cause of Action, a nonprofit government watchdog group, recently identified 174 active or rebranded ACORN affiliates, as well as organizations that share former ACORN staff.”

Interestingly, Illinois’ Democrat Attorney General Lisa Madigan has been pumping money into other or similar mortage assistance programs. See:

Madigan gives $4.5 million in mortgage settlement funds to politically connected, legal assistance organization

AG Madigan gives out $4.7 million more
