ACORN mafia still demands 'affordable housing'

Brazen union-backed group exhibits no shame for role in financial crisis

The vote fraud factory known as ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is apparently supporting Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s crazy push for $5 billion in so-called affordable housing.

As the nation stares into the economic abyss precisely because of housing-related tomfoolery, Villaraigosa’s plan calls for $1 billion in government to be spent as part of the $5 billion housing project.

The mayor essentially admitted that his plan is insane. “I know that budgets are tight . . . credit is almost nonexistent,” said the apparently psychotic Villaraigosa. “But we’re going to reject the cynics . . . and build a brighter future for those kids who are in the corner over there.”

Maybe Villaraigosa’s been using some of the same crack cocaine that ACORN has used to pay its operatives in its various voter registration drives.

And this isn’t the first time Villaraigosa has procured ACORN’s rent-a-mob services.

According to an LA Weekly report, ACORN received nearly $73,000 from an education-related pressure group founded by the mayor. The money went for campaign consulting services, travel and “meetings and appearances.”
