ACORN may have friends

Posted By on Wed, Sep 23, 2009 at 8:55 AM

Funny story. The bill to strip ACORN of its fairly paltry federal funding? It's written broadly. It might strip other government contractors who've had agents accused of wrongdoing.

Think: Defense contractors. Think millions and millions, maybe billions

You think Rep. John Boozman, the Third District Republican, may soon have some amendments for his proud legislative handiwork to punish ACORN? He may want to narrow the focus to tiny acorns, while the oaks of government largesse and misspending continue to catch government dollars. You think?
