ACORN Closes Indiana Operations

A feature story in the Sunday edition of the Star tells us that ACORN has ceased business operations in Indiana. Its Gary office, the one that produced all of those fraudulent voter registrations during last year's presidential campaign, closed down in May. The last employee in the Indianapolis office was recently furloughed. Although reporters Jon Murray and Mary Beth Schneider note that Congress recently voted to cut off federal funding to the group, they completely ignore the fact that U.S. Rep. Andre Carson was one of only 75 members of the House to vote against cutting off funding and the only member of the Indiana congressional delegation to do so. If you didn't read Advance Indiana, you would never know how Carson voted on that issue. Ironically, the story notes the organization's continued participation in a lawsuit against the State of Indiana claiming its welfare offices aren't making sufficient efforts to register welfare recipients to vote.

Still think the Indy Red Star Rag is unbiased? Look at these two sentences in their article:
1) the fallout over videos SHOWING EMBARRASSING CONDUCT by ACORN employees..."
"EMBARRASSING CONDUCT?" What a joke. How about fraud? Tax evasion? Conspiracy to commit prostitution? Endangering children? etc. etc.
2) "Long a target of conservatives, ACORN ..."
Gee...imagine that! Conservatives upset at the government giving $BILLIONS of dollars to a "community group" that gives almost $1MILLION of those tax dollars back to Obama's campaign, commits illegal acts all around the country, and registers Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Jimmy Johns to vote.
What are those conservatives thinking!! /s off
