ACORN receives money from the government and from private donations that are tax deductible. Does the American Public have a right to know how our tax money is being spent? Should any group that receives Tax Payer money ope their books to the American Public? Please respond and give reasons.

Yes they should open their books, and they and the 0bamunist should be prosecuted. Here is the reasons... http://www.onenewsnow.com/Perspectives/Default.aspx?id=547164

ACORN is structured like the old Communist party. It is made up of many tiny cells and each cell knows what it is doing and communicates through one person to another cell so no one cell could tell what the other cells were doing and no one person could bring down the whole group. The more I hear about this organization the more I see good people being destroyed by it. I am sure most of the employees are good people being used and duped by people who have a very different agenda and not one that is good for America. Good link

Well, the answer is always in the question, right? Of course they should. In fact, any attempts to block the public from access to records of benefit from public funds should be viewed as very guilty actions. Of course, by "public inspection" you're talking about government oversight, right? Because private entities poking around in other private entities' business is definitely not going to happen. Hear that GOP?

Eventually, all of 0bozo's secrets will be revealed... including his true BC... if there even is one.

If a business received as many convictions as ACORN has had against them the Federal Government would be using the RICO Statutes - A pattern of Criminal Activity across state lines. I think the count is up to 17 states have convictied ACORN of some crime related to voter fraud.

Yes. Throughout America's history, the country has had some extremely dark shadows but even more great moments! When you peel the proverbial layers back, looking at slavery, the attempted eradication of the Native Americans, and even our war triumphs and ultimate social justice, you'll find one common link: money. Money, value, wealth, worth, etc, has been either a predominant or underlining factor in everything America (the world, for that matter, but that's another discussion)has ever done. And like all countries, America is broke as a joke without its citizens' working. America is our country. America's money is our money. IF (and I'm not saying ACORN is guilty) someone is funneling our money into their bank accounts, committing fraud enabled by donations and tax dollars, and operating a racket to defraud other Americans of their money, we have a right to know. If ACORN is innocent, then they will be ever-more legit in the world! It will appear as if the right-wing crazy neo-cons simply wanted to stick it to the black man, once again, and their star will shine brighter than ever. But if they're dirty, well, they need to go away. There's only one way to find out. Moreover, we deserve to know where the money goes. I'm not calling for the heads of any person/people in particular. Lord knows that America has enough of that with the progressives trying to crucify ideology and the Bush admin. But it's time to see what's what with ACORN. They've been shrouded in mystery for a while now. The New York Times killed a story that could have possibly linked them with the Obama campaign. Their management keep claiming that the dirt was done by "rogue" employees (a lot of rogues!). And, like most leftist groups, they refuse to answer for anything. They think they can claim innocence and move on.

I feel the public has a right to know what the money is being used for if they are receiving any government money or people who are donating are receiving tax deductions or tax credits.

Well, I feel that any organization that gets government money should be open for inspection. Plus, I'd like to know all of their dealings and know if they're above board. I foresee them having something to do with the upcoming census taking and I have a bad feeling about that this time.
