    While everyone has been watching the so-called Health Reform battle, Obama (through the OMB) on 16 March, quietly ordered Federal agencies to resume payments to ACORN (despite a Congressional ban on such funding). The Dems are obviously gearing up to try to steal back as many Congressional seats as possible in November to nullify the voters reaction to their leftward march.

    America has reached a level of corruption that makes us little different than any 3rd world oligarchy.

    Barrel I too have 1 of those so called blue dogs representing my district. Just too let you know there is no such thing, should be called puppy dog. I have sent emails,faxes and phone calls daily to my representative to no avail. My conclusion is if it's a democrat it's liberal. No two ways about it. We will just have to make this a November to rememder, because I can guarantee you I will not forget.

    By MICHAEL TARM, Associated Press Writer Michael Tarm, Associated Press Writer – 14 mins ago
    CHICAGO – The once mighty community activist group ACORN announced Monday it is folding amid falling revenues — six months after video footage emerged showing some of its workers giving tax tips to conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    "It's really declining revenue in the face of a series of attacks from partisan operatives and right-wing activist that have taken away our ability to raise the resources we need," ACORN spokesman Kevin Whelan said.

    Several of its largest affiliates, including ACORN New York and ACORN California, broke away this year and changed their names in a bid to ditch the tarnished image of their parent organization and restore revenue that ran dry in the wake of the video scandal. They will continue to operate under their new names and aren't affected by ACORN's decision to shut down.

    ACORN's financial situation and reputation went into free fall within days of the videos' release in September. Congress reacted by yanking ACORN's federal funding, private donors held back cash and scores of ACORN offices closed.

    Earlier this month, a U.S. judge reiterated an earlier ruling that the federal law blacklisting ACORN and groups allied with it was unconstitutional because it singled them out. But that didn't mean any money would be automatically be restored.

    Bertha Lewis, the CEO of ACORN, which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, alluded to financial hardships in a weekend statement as the group's board prepared to deliberate by phone.

    "ACORN has faced a series of well-orchestrated, relentless, well-funded right wing attacks that are unprecedented since the McCarthy era," she said. "The videos were a manufactured, sensational story that led to rush to judgment and an unconstitutional act by Congress."

    ACORN's board decided to close remaining state affiliates and field offices by April 1 because of falling revenues, with some national operations will continue operating for at least several weeks before shutting for good, Whelan said Monday.
