Deserting A Sinking ACORN

For those of you who have been stranded on a desert island for the last year or so, there is an community organizing group that the president has had fairly close ties to over the years known as ACORN (the Association for Community Organization for Reform Now)This organization has come under increasing scrutiny that I feel no real need to go into (lest it be assumed that I know enough to be called in to testify at some impending judicial case)

In spite of a lack of serious mainstream media attention and under serious fire at this point from all sides their ship rather than having sailed, appears to be slipping loudly beneath the waves. True to form, some of those riding the waves now appear to be looking for alternate travel arrangements.
  • The Census Bureau recently announced that it was no longer going to use ACORN as part of the latest ongoing census.
  • The House and Senate have separately voted to remove any and all government funding to ACORN for any projects.
  • The IRS has just announced that it has dropped ACORN from a program to provide tax assistance for low income households.
We have all heard the expression pertaining to "rats deserting a sinking ship", but this is the first time that I have ever heard of them deserting a similarly sinking ACORN.

Rats do what rats do..., to save their own worthless hides...

There is no loyalty (or honor) among rats, especially government rats.
