Somebody just took a big dump in the Christmas stocking of all the wingnuts:
A report by the Congressional Research Service says ACORN hasn’t broken any laws in the last give years, but the filmmakers who secretly taped ACORN workers may have violated state law.
The CRS report, however, will give the organization’s backers some comfort and conservatives some ammo. It details that the, the beleaguered community group has received tens of millions of taxpayer dollars in the past several fiscal years — including one $16 million grant and an additional grant worth $7.8 million. An ACORN aide noted that much of the money was to ACORN Housing, which is legally a separate entity.
