Well, according to a whistleblower report recently put out by the Consumer Rights League (HT: emailer Joe R.) -- based on ACORN's own internal documents -- the group has engaged in a variety of dubious and possibly illegal practices that harmed both taxpayers and consumers.
The report ends with a recommendation that the Congress investigate the organization (which, of course, has also been involved in vote fraud in Missouri and elsewhere). It seems like a great idea, given that 40% of ACORN's funding comes from you and me -- the taxpayers.
Republican Reps. Feeney, Royce and Hensarling have called upon Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee for an investigation.
Why the Democrat stonewall -- and the MSM silence -- about ACORN?
