De-Fund ACORN, Republican Leader Insists

From the story: “All federal funding to ACORN must be stopped,” House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Thursday, amid a widening probe into voter registration fraud by the liberal group.

Questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, have turned up in as many as nine states, including so-called swing states.

The “nonpartisan” community-organizer group works to recruit low-income, Democrat-leaning voters. Its national Web site says the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election.

“The latest allegations of voter registration fraud by ACORN are further evidence that this group cannot be trusted with another dollar of the taxpayers’ money,” Boehner said in a news release. Read more….

Funny how CNN can report on a raid on ACORN’s operation in Las Vegas regarding voter registration fraud, but not mention ACORN by name. The report simply referenced a “non-profit group” that was “disputing claims it committed voter registration fraud.” Yeah, right….

It is time that we shut down and reform the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).

CCHD has funded ACORN over $1million in 2007 and almost as much in 2006.

Spread the word not to give to CCHD and to redirect your funds to a Catholic charity that is faithful to the Church.

We need to stop funding secular organizations and fund Catholic ones.

Will you join me in calling for everyone to stop giving to CCHD and reform it now?
