ACORN , the Community Organization group will be running the Census, and the Census is no longer run from the Dept. of Commerce but from the white house.

ACORN is in courts across the country for Voter registration fraud and other law discrepancies.

If I'm not mistaken, the voter registration was committed by individuals attempting to get money from ACORN, but not actually doing the work they were supposed to do. So, the fraud was not because the organization itself condoned it, but because some individuals chose to cheat.

A lady came to my door a couple of weeks ago, checking addresses and so forth for the census. She seemed to know what she was doing, very professional.

and how many people have to be arrested for these violations before it becomes a managment issue?

Absolutely Not.   They are under investigation by many states for voter fraud.  During the campaign they registered made up people, double registered people and were caught on several occasions telling people who to vote for.    In addition there has been several reports and questions about embezzlement and  where the money to this non profit group is going.

i have no idea...but how long has this happen before people started noticing..now people just see the bad in it, and forgot the purpose..

until we can get back to a society thats not filled with greed or corruption more and more of these will keep popping up
