Oh my god Acorn is found to have some employees who try to scam the system.
In the last 15 year alone they have received 53 million dollars. And now they have been uncovered and been shown to have some unscrupulous employees who might funnel a few extra bucks to their friends or neighbors.
C'mon now is this really worth the attention it has been getting?
How about a reality check here. What about the no bid contracts given to some of the private contractors who were paid billions to help with the wars in Afganistan and Iraq. Or even worse the bailout of the financial industry who now we are finding out are using tax payer money to help pay out some of these absurd bonuses we hear about. I am not saying that these people at Acorn are justified in what there doing, if they are stealing or cheating the system then do what needs to be done including prosecution, but I think that the crumbs these people receive from Acorn should be put into perspective. When compared to the largess and excesses of Wall St it is not even a contest.
