So says Rep. Steve King about ACORN corruption and its one-party government protectors.

Gershon’s ruling is “sweeping and far reaching and she even opined that ACORN has some kind of an implicit right to future contracts because they’ve succeeded in bidding on contracts that were similarly competitive,” King said.
Congress, he noted, has voted overwhelmingly to defund ACORN, yet federal funds continue to flow to ACORN. “We haven’t proved that we have a non-punitive motive,” as Gershon’s ruling requires, he said.
Attorney General Eric Holder has made it abundantly clear he has no interest in investigating his radical friends at ACORN. Holder’s Justice Department released a legal opinion late last month that allows the Obama administration to ignore the will of Congress. He’s also ignored the 88-page report on ACORN’s systemic corruption and flagrant racketeering activities that was issued this summer by Republican investigators on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
King said he doesn’t hold out much hope that the Obama administration or Congress will decide to do the right thing and investigate ACORN.
“This is one-party gangster government and they know what they’re doing,” he said.
