“GOP Lawmakers Hit ACORN With New Report Alleging Misconduct. The Republicans’ latest report contains documents that they say confirms previous findings that ACORN is responsible for thousands of fraudulent voter registrations across the country and has used taxpayer money to support a partisan political agenda.” FOXNews.com
A second report issued by Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) and his fellow Republicans on the US House Oversight Committee further accuses ACORN, a non-profit organization, and its partner SEIU of multiple crimes. Among them are voter-registration fraud, using taxpayers’ money for political purposes, and violating election laws by having an unlawful partnership between a major labor union and ACORN and its many affiliates. The report says ACORN operates as a “Criminal Conspiracy” in conjunction with SEIU. Not only do they share the same the same office space in many cases, they also co-mingle monies that transfer from one arm to another. According to an audit, one organization, American Institute for Social Justice transfers federal funds to ACORN’s national organization for political purposes. The report also states that the Department of Justice (Eric Holder, Attorney General) and the FBI should be investigated for not delving into this issue of corruption and criminal activity. This is a 68 page report and the following are some of the salient points.
