that Acorn's federal funding cranks back up November 1. That's right.

Their congressional "defunding" was for 30 days.

Funny how certain parts of Congress never got around to letting other Congressmen and Senators in on this little secret.

Also, did you know that in the Community Re-investment know the legislation that forced lenders to loan money to less than credit worthy applicants also provided another option? That option was to donate or donate in kind, (thats giving something like computers, office furniture, etc) to "community" based groups and Acorn was the single largest benefactor of this 'largesse'.

Did you know that in coming legislation, credit card companies and consumer lending companies will be mandated to do the same?

This info is just now coming to light via several congressional investigations.
