It seems that every time ACORN makes the headlines, it's for scandalous activities and criminal investigations. As if the investigations, indictments, and consent decrees related criminal voter registration fraud activities in more than a dozen states wasn't enough, recent videos show ACORN employees in three cities giving advice to a couple for evading tax laws and getting federal grants to establish a prostitution ring. Enough is enough! Since 1994, ACORN has received more than $53 million in direct federal funding. And, bills passed this year could give ACORN access to as much as $10 billion more. Democrats in Congress are finally wising up, voting overwhelmingly to stem the flow of your tax dollars to ACORN. The Census Bureau even severed its ties with ACORN for the 2010 Census. And, governors are cutting ACORN off in their states. But, President Obama has the power to stop ACORN from getting any more money NOW. For months, I have fought to cut ACORN off from any more tax money. Using your money is a privilege and their repeated violations of the law and public trust mean they haven't earned that privilege. I have introduced legislation, offered amendments, and written letters to the IRS, the Census Bureau, the Speaker of the House, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development -- to anyone who could take action to stop this travesty! It is time for President Obama to step up to his fiduciary duties to you, the taxpayer, and immediately suspend and bar ACORN from any federal programs or funding. I urge you to sign this petition and join me in the fight to protect your tax dollars from being used and abused. --Rep. Michele Bachmann President Obama, I urge you to immediately suspend all federal agencies from doing business with ACORN and using our hard-earned tax dollars to perpetuate their scandalous work. The Senate voted overwhelmingly to cut off ACORN. The House voted overwhelmingly to cut off ACORN. And, now individual states are taking this action as well. We want to know when you will use the authority you have to suspend and bar ACORN from federal funding. Paid for by Bachmann for Congress
