Lawmaker Demands Probe of ACORN’s Finances

By on 5.28.09 | 7:35PM

House Judiciary Committee member Steve King (R-Iowa) is demanding congressional hearings about the twisted finances of the radical activist group ACORN.

"This spider web, this myriad web of ACORN dollars and revenue streams, every bit of them should be looked at, all the corporations that they are networked with all of the boards of directors of those corporations, the inner locking connecting, the faces that are the same from board to board," King said. 

I explored this very topic at length in the November Foundation Watch.

King's call came the same day that Judicial Watch released a pile of documents from the Department of Commerce. The documents show internal communications at Commerce regarding ACORN and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Meanwhile, Kevin Mooney of the Washington Examiner tried to attend a meeting at the Center for American Progress Action Fund and was denied entry by an ACORN spokesman. The meeting attended by representative of various left-wing groups was organized to come up with a PR strategy to deflect attention from ACORN's corruption.
