"ACORN has, since 1998, received an estimated $31 million in government funding," said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. "Now they have intervened in a New Jersey gun rights case in defense of an illegal Jersey City one-gun-a-month ordinance that violates the state preemption statute.



"It is an outrage that this group has intervened to defend an anti-gun ordinance that has already been declared illegal by the court," he observed. "So long as ACORN accepts one penny of public funding, the organization should remain absolutely neutral on social issues, political campaigns and especially legal actions defending the right to keep and bear arms.

I want to know how I can funnel off taxpayer extorted money to fund my own personal and biased crusades. This seems like a great scam they've got going.

Your second quote is dead on... if they are a non-profit org that accepts public funding, they should remain effectively neutral in all things politics.

I wonder if this coming to light will affect their non-profit status?

I think we'd be hard-pressed to find any org accepting public funds thats honestly neutral. It's a shame.

You have to make friends with Obama and Biden, or their new Treasurer. Start a defense or oil related company, or an investment bank. By the end of his term, Obama will have kicked trillions of dollars your way on no-bid contracts and bail-out plans and stuck the taxpayers with a debt of close to $60,000 for every man, woman and child. Then to express your outrage over that, you'll have to complain about a group that gets $3 million a year and wants to limit your gun buying to one a month.
