ACORN To Swarm Capitol Hill for Porkulus Bill

An ACORN insider just told me that the group is planning to send hundreds of activists to Capitol Hill this Wednesday to press lawmakers to approve the porkulus spending legislation that would give the heavily tax-subsidized ACORN a shot at up to $5.2 billion in taxpayer dollars.

I wrote a massive profile of ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) in the November Foundation Watch, have written several articles about ACORN in the American Spectator, and talked about ACORN on “The G. Gordon Liddy Show” on Feb. 6.

Meanwhile, the D.C. Examiner has a good primer by Kristen Lopez Eastlick, senior economic analyst for the Employment Policies Institute, on the ACORN-friendly provisions of the so-called stimulus bill.
