Obama Continues to Funnel Our Money Into ACORN

by Dave Blount | September 19, 2011 2:20 pm

Obama’s alma mater[1] ACORN is dead[2], you say? Not hardly — the Moonbat Messiah is still stuffing its coffers with our money[3]:

An affiliate of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) received another $300,000 in taxpayer funding[4] in early August, The Daily Caller has learned.

President Barack Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded the $300,000 grant to the post-ACORN ally: The Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA). The Obama administration awarded the money despite a 2010 law saying no taxpayer funds could be issued to ACORN “or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, or allied organizations.”

AHCOA was previously named “Acorn Housing Corporation,” a group that did a lot of business with ACORN. Acorn Housing changed its name to AHCOA in late 2009.

Until the end of August, AHCOA’s website boasted[5] that it was “formerly Acorn Housing Corporation.” The organization has since removed[6] that bit of history.

The “new” organization[7] has the same Chicago address and phone number as Acorn Housing did[8]. AHCOA has also been using Acorn Housing’s old Data Universal Number System (DUNS) code to apply for and receive taxpayer-funded grants. A DUNS number is unique, organization-specific and location-specific, implying that AHCOA may be no different from Acorn Housing.

Similarly, ACORN and the SEIU are for all intents and purposes the same organization[9].

Whether out of desperation or arrogance, Obama will continue to funnel massive sums of our money to this appallingly[10] corrupt voter fraud[11] outfit until the blessed day he is removed from office.
