More Hypocrisy from ACORN

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now—aka ACORN—wants taxpayers to pay for affordable housing slush funds and other big government schemes, but it doesn’t pay its own taxes. Matthew Vadum reports:

… more than 200 federal, state, and local tax liens adding up to more than $3 million have been filed against the ACORN network since 1989. All of these liens, which are only issued by creditor tax agencies after a tax debt has become seriously delinquent, are associated with ACORN’s 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue address in New Orleans, Louisiana. That address is the official headquarters for nearly 300 ACORN-affiliated groups.

This is the same organization whose voter registration drives have led to criminal convictions for voter fraud in Colorado, Washington, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
