#rsrh HUD: ACORN successor group just as rotten.

[UPDATE: Welcome, Instapundit readers.]

I paraphrase: the HUD actually indicated that ACORN had taken a lot of money from the government, hadn’t properly accounted for how it was spent, and that its ‘replacement’ AHCOA needs to make things right before it gets any more funding.  ACORN’s/AHCOA’s response? “Well, we took a bath from to the fallout from that underage El Salvadoran brothel sting operation thing last year, so we shouldn’t have to pay back any of that money that we spent on election fraud.  Err, low-income housing assistance.”

PS: If HUD is inclined to take this argument seriously, may I remind HUD that, starting next January, Rep. Darrell Issa is unlikely to be merely the Ranking Member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee?

    Personally, I say stay away from the “impeach the President” stuff next year, because there’s not enough there.

    But this type of investigation? Be still my beating heart. If all the (relatively) little corruptions can be aired and nailed to the wall of Democrats and progressives….I shudder with anticipation.

  • Duke says:

    It is effective that a bank robber’s punishment is restitution+jail. The punishment for the decision-makers at ACORN/AHCOA should follow the same course, well-proven to deter other frauds on the taxpayers’ purse.

  • Don Rodrigo says:

    AHCOA shoouldn’t get any funding, ever. The same should have been true for ACORN. No funding for any “community organizations” or activist organizations. None should ever get any federal funding whatsoever for any purpose whatsover. One of the big problems with federal social program funding is when the government subcontracts to NGO “mercenaries” that have blatantly obvious ideological agendas, and always syphon off money for their own nefarious purposes. This is corruption and embezzlement plain and simple. Federal money meant for community programs should be handled by federal, state or local government employees, and NEVER by any of these anti-social, subversive, America-hating NGOs.

    Our national financial sector and our national economy was brought low in spectacular fashion in large part because these “NGOs” have been empowered to cause mischief and wreak havoc contrary to the public interest.
