ACORN Funding Controversy Update

The Times reports on the House action to deny ACORN federal funds.

Since 1994, the group has received an estimated $53 million in federal aid.

Bolstered by conservative news media outlets, Republicans have been on a crusade against the group for months, accusing it of voter-registration fraud and claiming it was being protected by Democrats who benefited from its political activities. Matters escalated when some Acorn workers were videotaped offering advice to conservative activists who were posing as people interested in establishing a prostitution business.
