ACORN and Charles Gibson

I heard a phenomenal radio clip on the way home from work today.

We've now seen the third undercover video on ACORN (more will soon be released) in which their employees are caught red-handed promoting tax fraud, prostitution, and child-sex trafficking. This from an organization that has received millions of tax dollars and is scheduled to receive billions in stimulus money! The scandal is so great that the U.S. Senate has voted to de-fund ACORN!

Today I heard a clip of a radio host asking ABC's Charles Gibson why this story hasn't been covered in the media. Gibson laughed and frankly admitted that this was the first time he had heard of the story!

I was blown away! This may turn out to be one of the biggest stories since Watergate (hmmm, what does Barack Obama know about ACORN and when did he know it?) and Charles Gibson has never even heard of the story? How can a world news organization possibly be so isolated?

To be exact on those numbers, since '93, ACORN has received over $107 million in donations and over $53 million in federal funding.

Before Congress voted to defund the Marxist organization, they were on track to receive over #8.5 billion in stimulus money.

"During last year's primaries, the Obama campaign paid $832,598 to Citizens Services, Inc., an ACORN affiliate, for get-out-the-vote work." -Townhall Magazine August, 2009
