Obama Has Illegally Given at Least $540,905 of Our Money to ACORN So Far This Year

Obama violated federal law[1] when he gave $79,819 of our money to his malignant alma mater ACORN in March, but I don’t blame the media for not thinking it was worth mentioning — at least not in comparison with this[2]:

Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) gave ACORN another $461,086 in January. The funds were earmarked for ACORN Housing Corp. in January under HUD’s Self-help Homeownership Opportunity Program (SHOP[3]), according to the government website USAspending.gov.

In order words, the Obama administration gave fraud-ridden ACORN nearly a half million dollars…

This means the Obama administration has given at least $540,905 in taxpayer money to ACORN this calendar year alone.

The money was given to ACORN apparently in defiance of Public Law 111-117[4] which spells out in pretty clear terms that ACORN shouldn’t be getting any government funding.

Obama will be relying heavily on ACORN’s vote fraud expertise in 2012. He has already begun paying for it with our money, in direct violation of federal law.

We are literally living under an outlaw regime.
