Were you aware?

Michele Bachman's claims regarding ACORN and the census are completely false AND she was wrong about what the Constitution requires of those being questioned. What do you think?

  • How could you have read the article and still not understand about ACORN and the census? ACORN is one of THOUSANDS of organizations helping with the census.

    Futhermore, yourspecialkid, it doesn't look like YOU read the articles either because they quote the Constitution and PROVE that Bachman is wrong and a liar!!!!

  • OK, great. Never been a big fan of Bachmans...

    How about the EMPLOYEES of ACORN requesting ACORN open their finacial records and ACORC declining? HOw about Fox News Also requesting? They could solve a lot of "corrupt" concerns if they just let the employees see...

  • OP here. I agree with you grly to a point. I don't think a news station or anyone should demand access to records that might be confidential.
    And wow. My opinion is different than yours so I work for ACORN?

  • the head count is the only part of the census that is called for by the Constitution. The code for the enumeration can be found in 13 USC 141

  • ok, I don't have tv so I am ignorant of the facts. I did link and read the articles but I'm not understanding the part about ACORN. Did someone get rid of the Census Bureau? Why is ACORN in charge of the Census and not the Census Bureau?
