Obama Gives Half a BILLION American Taxpayer Dollars To ACORN CronyTopics: Political News and commentaries
Despite his intimate and long-term association with the radical leftist, profoundly corrupt,
ACORN having been outed by Stanley Kurtz, and despite the Obama-tied community organizing organization having been revealed to be one of the most profoundly corrupt institutions in America, Barack Obama has no qualms whatsoever in handing over $445 million of taxpayer money to his crony:
The Obama Administration has given a former director at the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) nearly half a billion dollars to offer "struggling" Illinois homeowners mortgage assistance, a Judicial Watch investigation has found.AS the piece goes on to point out, the legal scandals led Congress to pass a 2009 law banning federal funding for ACORN, which for years enjoyed a huge flow of taxpayer dollars to promote its various leftwing causes. Yet despite this, Obama sees fit to do as he damn pleases ... he "don't need no stinkin' rules"!
It means the ACORN official (Joe McGavin) will go from operating a corrupt leftist community group thatâ€™s banned by Congress from receiving federal funding to controlling over $445 million in U.S. taxpayer funds. The money is part of a $7.6 billion Treasury Department program to help the â€œunemployed or substantially underemployedâ€ make their mortgage payments.
In this case, JW found that a subcomponent of the state-run Illinois Housing Development Authority, known as the Illinois Hardest Hit Program, received a generous $445,603,557 Treasury infusion. The Obama Administration established Hardest Hit in 2010 to provide targeted aid to families in states hit hardest by the economic and housing market downturn, according to its website.
In early 2011 McGavin was appointed as director of Hardest Hit. Before that he was director of counseling for ACORN Housing in Chicago and operations manager for a Chicago ACORN offshoot called Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA). His strong ties to ACORN make him a suspect candidate to handle such a huge amount of taxpayer dollars.
The Obama-tied community organization supposedly shut down after a series of exposes about its illegal activities, including fraudulent voter registration drives and involvement in the housing market meltdown. Read all about it in Judicial Watch's special report, "The Rebranding of ACORN." The legal scandals led Congress to pass a 2009 law banning federal funding for ACORN, which for years enjoyed a huge flow of taxpayer dollars to promote its various leftwing causes.
