Official at ACORN Funder Confirmed as Head of Corporation for National and Community Service

On Feb. 11 the Senate confirmed Obama nominee Patrick Corvington as chief executive of the Corporation for National and Community Service, which oversees Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America.

Corvington was a senior official at the left-wing Annie E. Casey Foundation of Baltimore, Maryland, which  granted funding to ACORN during his tenure. Although there is no indication that Corvington has any connection to ACORN, he comes to CNCS from the same cluster of organizations that provides financial and other support for the radical group that is a longtime fixture in the activist community.
