FOXNews.com - Government Report Cites ACORN Offshoot for 'Ineligible' Payments, Grant ProblemsFox News said: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 -- 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.
Poor innocent ACORN... err ahh... AHCA now, getting picked on again by the big bad government for misusing government grant money. Imagine that. I think this is all some government plot or conspiracy to degrade and enslave the good work ACOR... the AHCA is doing for the needy in the United States. For shame ... can't they see that the AHCA is simply helping out the disadvantaged and showing them how to get around taxes and other nonsensical government requirements? To do that they need highly trained scam artists to ply their trade and pass on their knowledge to the populace and that costs money ya know. Flimflam men and women aren't cheap so how else are they to be paid?
The government is so stupid sometimes.
