From the you’ve got to be kidding me file. ACORN, who’s government swindling exploits are well documented, feels so damn entitled after years of federal handouts totaling millions, they sue the federal government after their funding is pulled by Congress.
WAH WAH WAH
This is like embezzling from your employer for years, getting fired, and suing to get your job back since you got so used to the paycheck and extra cash under the table. Would you expect another company to hire you and give you access to the bank accounts with that felony on your record? Bertha Lewis does. Remember, she thinks she solved all the problems when she took over.
From the New York Times.
In an affidavit attached to the lawsuit, Bertha Lewis, the chief executive of Acorn, said she “underestimated” the effect of the [House] resolution. “It gave the green light for others to terminate our funds as well,” she said. “All of our state and local grants were frozen, as were most of our private foundation funds.”
And several applications made by Acorn for contracts with federal agencies have also been rejected, the suit said, including a bid for a $780,000 grant for outreach to poor communities about asthma and an application to set up public computer centers in five cities.
Suck it up you criminals.
Sure, you have yet to be convicted of anything, but if perception rules in politics and you play the political game…
Note how the Times describes the often-indited ACORN group in the first paragraph as an anti-poverty organization. Bull feathers. The anti-poverty organizations are the small, medium and large businesses who are trying to wade their way through government over-regulation and high taxes to provide jobs and keep the economy moving.
Those businesses are the real anti-poverty organizations in the United States, not the bozos at ACORN.
