WASHINGTON (AP) — The Census Bureau on Friday severed its ties with Acorn, a community organization that Republicans have accused of voter-registration fraud.
“We do not come to this decision lightly,” the census director, Robert Groves, wrote in a letter to Acorn that was obtained by The Associated Press.
In splitting with Acorn, Mr. Groves sought to tamp down negative publicity that the partnership would taint the 2010 census.
I'd imagine the straw that broke the camels back was the recent release of tapes where ACORN employees in two different locations were suggesting to people posing as a prostitute and a pimp how to evade taxes. Even more disgusting they child prostituion to which the Acorn employee replied "I don't need to know about that" or something similar.
Good riddance, hopefully this will lead to full investigation of the incidents and jail time.
