GAO to Probe ACORN....

I wish I may, I wish I might.....

Kind of like they have been "probing" the American Taxpayer?  Not Likely....

The Hill--The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has informed two House Republicans that it will investigate ACORN’s use of federal funds.

The GAO sent a letter to Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, informing them of its decision. Smith and Issa on Thursday released the letter, dated Dec. 7.

“GAO accepts your request as work that is within the scope of its authority,” wrote Ralph Dawn, managing director of GAO’s government relations department.

Dawn also noted that in September, Issa, Smith and 20 members of the Senate, as well as Rep. Rush Holt (D-N.J.), requested the GAO investigation.

Issa applauded the GAO for looking into the ACORN controversy.

“ACORN’s criminal acts over many years have robbed taxpayers and charitable donors of the honest public services ACORN was paid to provide,” he said. “This GAO study should be another step toward understanding the scope of funds from across the federal government that were sent to ACORN yet cannot be verified that they were used as intended.”

Smith said the GAO probe is a “good start” but called on the FBI to launch its own investigation, considering the large number of criminal allegations related to ACORN that have surfaced in recent months.
Write your Congressman and Senator; CUT OFF ALL ACORN FUNDING NOW!!!
These fuckers need to rot in prison....
