    Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count

    Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count


    WASHINGTON – The Census Bureau on Friday severed its ties with ACORN, a community organization that has been hit with Republican accusations of voter-registration fraud. "We do not come to this decision lightly," Census director Robert Groves wrote in a letter to ACORN, which was obtained by The Associated Press.

    In splitting with ACORN, Groves sought to tamp down GOP concerns and negative publicity that the partnership will taint the 2010 head count.

    "It is clear that ACORN's affiliation with the 2010 census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 census efforts," Groves wrote.

    Stephen Buckner, a census spokesman, confirmed the letter, but declined additional comment.

    ACORN spokesman Scott Levenson did not immediately return a request for comment.

    And here boys and girls, is what I call "AP liberal white-wash of the day" from that piece:

    ACORN fired two employees who were seen on hidden-camera video giving tax advice to a man posing as a pimp and a woman who pretended to be a prostitute. Fox News Channel broadcast excerpts from the video on Thursday. On the video, a man and woman visiting ACORN's Baltimore office asked about buying a house and how to account on tax forms for the woman's income. An ACORN employee advised the woman to list her occupation as "performance artist."

    In a statement, ACORN Maryland board member Margaret Williams said the video was an attempt to smear ACORN, and that undercover teams attempted similar setups in at least three other ACORN offices. Williams said no tax returns were filed and no assistance was provided.
    It was posted by the AP less than 3 hours ago... But somehow they forgot to mention that the DC office were guilty of the same thing in new video uncovered today... Wonder why?

    They also left out the fact that they were supporting CHILD PROSTITUTION and they wanted the house for a BORDELLO.

    Wasn't that nice of the AP to not make ACORN look too bad?

    Were you expecting the left to defend the actions of these two individuals from ACORN, or what were you expecting exactly?

    They have to wait for DailyKos, Amy Goodman, and all the other Soros outlets to tell them the official spin on this. Democrats are pretty much just like their partners the Republicans, when it comes to saturating the message boards with their Party lines.

    Any shill who shows a capacity for independent thought is a threat to the Hive, so wait for your Leaders to guide you. Wait for your assignments.

    acorn is radical, criminal, extremely close to obama and going down

    everyone knows about the voter registrations, tens of thousands in 11 battleground states, clearly the product of centrally concerted and planned effort

    obama was a key player in acorn's YEARLY training seminars well into the 90's, according to toni foulkes, chicago chapter head

    Inside Obama’s Acorn by Stanley Kurtz on National Review Online

    very few, tho, are aware of acorn's crucial role in SUBPRIME, the particular pointy pin that popped our overinflated national economy about a year ago

    that is, many blame dodd and bawney fwank, the national recovery act, bush's bragging about his record number of minority home owners...

    but those compromised players are all shifty, they wiggle and deny

    acorn, on the other hand, openly BRAGS about its role in SUBPRIME

    madeline talbott famously "dragged banks kicking and screaming" into brokering these bogus loans with suicide adjustables and killer balloons

    floating folks in flats they frankly can't afford

    acorn openly touts its "affirmative action lending policies" (its own words)

    acorn physically took over bankers board meetings, chanted outside lenders homes

    O'S DANGEROUS PALS

    acorn's founders, the rathke brothers, are known embezzlers, to the tune of a million dollars, and they covered it up, never even told other board members

    Wade Rathke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    and now COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS work their corrupt butts off, in TWO separate offices, to cover up tax fraud and CHILD PROSTITUTION

    a pattern of openly criminal behavior

    yet, acorn has received for years tens of millions in taxpayer money, federal, stimulus, as well as multi millions from the OBAMA CAMPAIGN, 2008

    no wonder the POWERS THAT BE called off CONYERS

    Conyers abandons plan to probe ACORN - Washington Times

    by any objective standard, acorn's proven criminality, aside from its radicalism, is a scandal of the highest order

    as is the admin's blocking all efforts to discover the truth

    just cuz the media cover acorn's crimes so reluctantly and half assed, don't think the word's not getting out

    people are INTERESTED in their president, you see, naturally

    they PAY ATTENTION

    why do you think the obama's polls are plummeting so precipitously?

    why do you think he's so MISTRUSTED by millions of americans, they go ballistic just because he wants to say to their kids, do your homework?

    it's a lot of things, but acorn's huge

    and GROWING

    unbelievable arrogance on the part of pelosi/obama to include funding for the red t-shirts in the stimulus

    beyond stupid to let commerce count acorn in as census takers

    obama is the most incompetent politician at the national level america has ever seen

    he thinks stuff that sounds good surrounded by harvard ivy and south chicago sweat plays well across our 57 states

    ie, he simply does not understand america

    this is why elected dems will not support his health care, he's just way too far out there for normal americans

    So far it looks like the Hive has decided the story hasn't become big enough, and is hoping it goes away. When a op ed hits the major control centers, we'll see some activity as their operatives make the rounds of message boards. This story hasn't shown up on a couple of the other boards I visited yet.
