resident's spokeswoman says ACORN dispute will be addressed-good news


About time someone speaks on behalf of Prez!

Justice Department will investigate where needed'

The Justice Department will investigate whether action is warranted in the growing dispute over the submission of fraudulent voter registration forms nationwide by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizers.

The confirmation came today in response to a question from Les Kinsolving, WND's correspondent at the White House.

"House Minority Leader John Boehner said, 'The latest allegations of voter registration fraud by ACORN are further evidence that this group cannot be trusted with another dollar of taxpayers' money.' And my question: Does the president agree or disagree with Mr. Boehner?"

"I don't have specific information about that group. But what I can tell you is that the integrity of the vote is essential to our democracy. And the Justice Department investigates where needed, but they don't comment on those investigations, and I can't either," responded White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.
"All federal funding to ACORN must be stopped. The ACORN slush fund must be disbanded. Sources of federal funding through the Department of Housing and Urban Development or any other agency must be stopped. Contracting for services between candidates for federal office and ACORN, as Senator Obama has done, must end. Now that the taxpayers own Fannie Mae, any funding from Fannie Mae’s nonprofit foundation to ACORN must stop."
