GAO exonerates ACORN -- Gee! What a shocker!
The right wing's obsession with destroying the community organizing group ACORN was never about criminal misdeeds, corruption or mishandling government grants. ACORN played a fairly substantial role in the run-up to the 2008 election in making inroads in poor neighborhoods and communities in registering voters - the majority who happened to be minority and Democrat.
So in essence what truly horrified the right wing about ACORN's work was that that they were registering too many darkie and beaner Democrats to vote. It really is as simple as that.
