They will serve as a "national partner" with the United States Census Bureau. ACORN's role will be to hire nearly 1.4 million workers to canvass for the 2010 census.
Why should we be alarmed?
ACORN has a long history of voter fraud charges and now they are going to be a part of the 2010 census! Republicans are already leading the fight against ACORN's illegitimate role in the census. "
ACORN has been accused of voter fraud, embezzlement, and more... and yet this is a group that the federal government wants helping with the census?" asks Bobby Eberle of GOPUSA.
"It's a concern, especially when you look at all the different charges of voter fraud. And it's not just the lawmakers' concern. It should be the concern of every citizen in the country," Rep.. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., vice ranking member of the subcommittee for the U.S. Census, told FOXNews.com. "We want an enumeration. We don't want to have any false numbers."
Why should we be further alarmed?
The census count not only determines congressional allocation, but it also provides the raw data by which government allocates spending on everything from roads to schools. Fraudulent or invalid data could skew congressional redistricting and enable public policy decisions that would unfairly favor the Democratic Party.
