How do we make sure organizations like Acorn do not get any government money? Who is watching out for the common man?

Who put the ACORN poison pill in the recent bailout?
Nancy Pelosi, Henry M. Paulson Jr, Charles B. Rangel, Maxine Waters, John Kerry, Barney Frank, Barak Obama

Barney Frank, the chairman of the Financial Services Committee, Affordable Housing Trust Fund is the man who wanted to keep ACORN in the bailout bill, and it took the Republicans and John McCain to remove it.

Shelby Holliday, a reporter for Palestra.net , filmed ACORN shuttling in some prospects. interviewed another homeless man targeted by the registration drive who exulted that he was voting for Obama because "I want him to do his thang. You know, do his thug thizzle."

"Thug thizzle" is street slang for performing your trademark move. Obama and ACORN have practiced their thug thizzle together for years: Organizing an ever-expanding community of ineligible and marginal voters to expand the Democrat power base. Rules be damned.

ACORN has helped register over 1.27 million people nationwide. It gets 40 percent of its revenues from the taxpayers, with the rest coming from left-wing heavyweights like billionaire George Soros and the Democracy Alliance.

Thanks for the information. Apparently both parties announced a change this afternoon. Sorry I didn't catch all info, but it's about no more funding for Acorn. OMG is it true? If so it about time!
