Not that Acorn is perfect, far from it -- but it's interesting to me how when conservatives decide who to criticize they go after the group that spends its time trying to help poor people while defending the big banks and businesses that give its CEOs million dollar bonuses while ruining the economy.
Seriously, it's kind of like that syndrome where the captors start identifying with their oppressors. I never get that.

“I don’t want an overzealous consumer protection agency,” Corker said. “We need balance. Right now in the bill, there’s too much independence and too little coordination between the regulators and the consumer protection side.”

That gives rank and file Americans an idea of where they stand with the GOP.
ACORN canvassing the graveyard vote again? SAY IT AIN'T SO!
How about just PHONY registrations?

Yes "ACORN has done a great deal of good for people regardless of their political affiliation", as long as they are pro-Obama or just Leftist Liberals.
There is no end to ACORNS corruption and that's not even counting the fraud in Housing or the help they wanted to give a Hooker in buying a whole house for illegal alien children hookers.
Yes let's us all pat ACORN on the back. But only if you have moral compass what ever.
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything. We know them as Liberals.

You're talking about "help they wanted to give" to a nonexistent child prostitution ring. Those who gave advice were subsequently fired. No violation of the law was committed. How do you feel about Dyncorp who receives billions from taxpayers after they have twice been accused of running actual child prostitution rings?
Did you bother to watch the unedited videos? Over and over Okeefe was told they couldn't help and harrassed them until someone felt sorry for Giles. The videos don't show what O'keefe tried to make you believe when taken in their full context. Even so no laws were broken.
As for the banks being "forced" CRA loans were backed by the government and were the safest of the housing loans. 3/4ths of the subprime loans came from banks not under full CRA control. So yes blaming CRA for the housing market collapse has no basis in fact. Banks chose to sell their debt around, hide assets, cook the books.
Instead of waiting
You are talking about the CRA which was designed to encourage lending into poorer minority communities
The punishement was.
The CRA would provide a score on how well the bank met the CRA regulations. That score would be taken into advisement by Banking regulators on whether or not to allow banking expansion through opening new branches or buying out its competitors.
Operative word advisement. The CRA by itself could do nothing, its score would only be part of what would be used to determine if the bank should be allowed to buy out a competitor
Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
