This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who hasn’t been living in a cave for the past few weeks. Since the video of the ACORN staffers and the pimp/prostitute clients went viral, the media has been buzzing about ACORN and their low-rent tactics (no pun intended).
Now the Baltimore Sun is reporting that the MD Attorney General is calling for an investigation of our local ACORN office. Frankly, ever since the incident with Louis Beverly and Donna Hanks back in February, we haven’t been too keen on ACORN. Especially when we dug a little deeper into Mr. Beverly’s activities and found that he had quite the nasty criminal record, along with being the defendant in a couple of lawsuits involving unsafe housing conditions.
Besides the Maryland Attorney General’s investigation, the group is also the subject of an investigation by the US Department of Justice, at the request of Rep. Lamar Smith (R) of Texas. Additionally, the Senate voted 83-7 in favor of cutting off all Federal funding to ACORN, according to Fox News. The US Census Bureau has also cut ties with ACORN.
