"Inspector General Slams ACORN Spin-off, But Will it Matter?" (JudicialWatch.org, 10/1/10)

Talking of corrupt nonprofits, I wanted to see what has happened to ACORN... and... wouldnt you know!

Inspector General Slams ACORN Spin-off, But Will it Matter?

ACORN may be renamed and rebranded but a new government report details how the organization is up to its same old corrupt practices.

According to Fox News:

An official report released this week says an ACORN offshoot group cannot properly account for how it has spent millions of federal dollars and recommends that the group repay the government and be put on standby mode until it cleans up its act.

The report from the inspector general for the Department of Housing and Urban Development reviewed how ACORN Housing Corporation — now called Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) — has spent federal grant money over the past two decades. The report described the group’s book-keeping as “problematic and unsupported,” and claimed that more than $65,000 in “ineligible” salary expenses were charged to a federal grant last year, including costs for six employees after they were terminated.

(You can read the inspector general’s report in its entirety here.)



Same players, same goals...just another nonprofit entity.... You expect the results to be different??
