ACORN creates front group for “Anti-Capitalism” protests…by the way you are paying for it.

Your tax dollars are paying for this very partisan protest.
Busload of Crazies to Tour Homes of AIG Executives This Weekend
See these crazies protesting an an AIG employees home with signs that say “Capitalism is Organized Crime”? They are from a group called “Connecticut Working Families” but who are they really…. ACORN (the vote registration fraud people – 16 states multiple indictments and guilty pleas but they insist its all trumped up).
It gets better….
YOU are paying for this. ACORN receives millions from the “Affordable Housing Trust Fund”. It is a fund that is authorized by Congress and bureaucrats hand this money out to groups like ACORN and La Raza (the race). They say that they are helping people who are in need with the money. Instead they engage in protests, law suits, thuggery and vote fraud. Do these people seem non-partisan to you? The stimulus bill that no one read has $2 billion for that trust fund that ACORN gets paid from.

Working Families Party Making Inroads
by Scott Whipple (New Britain Herald) Oct. 28th, 2008
… Asked about the party’s joint founder, ACORN (The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), Dinkin said “while it’s fair to say that ACORN has a role in Working Families, allegations of voter fraud against ACORN are trumped up. At worst, a couple of people who worked for ACORN tried to cheat ACORN and not do their jobs. These people were identified and fired. I’m impressed with what a good operation they run.” …
So it all becomes clear.
The only question is why does ACORN feel the need to hide behind a front group?
By the way did we mention that the govermnment is hiring ACORN to “work” the Census?
ACORN to Play Role in 2010 Census
The U.S. Census Bureau is working with several national organizations to help recruit 1.4 million workers to produce the country’s 2010 census, including one with a history of voter fraud charges: ACORN.

The U.S. Census is supposed to be free of politics, but one group with a history of voter fraud, ACORN, is participating in next year’s count, raising concerns about the politicization of the decennial survey.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people.
A U.S. Census “sell sheet,” an advertisement used to recruit national partners, says partnerships with groups like ACORN ”play an important role in making the 2010 Census successful,” including by “help[ing] recruit census workers.”
But ACORN’s partnership with the 2010 Census is worrisome to lawmakers who say past allegations of fraud should raise concerns about the organization.
“It’s a concern, especially when you look at all the different charges of voter fraud. And it’s not just the lawmakers’ concern. It should be the concern of every citizen in the country,” Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., vice ranking member of the subcommittee for the U.S. Census, told FOXNews.com. “We want an enumeration. We don’t want to have any false numbers.”
ACORN, which claims to be a non-partisan grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people, came under fire in 2007 when Washington State filed felony charges against several paid ACORN employees and supervisors for more than 1,700 fraudulent voter registrations. In March 2008, an ACORN worker in Pennsylvania was sentenced for making 29 phony voter registration forms. The group’s activities were frequently questioned in the 2008 presidential election.
