 ACORNAlive And Trying To Wreck 2010 Election

Matthew Vadum is the foremost authority in America on the skullduggery of Acorn. He was a guest on my radio show Hair on Fire where we discussed his latest article on Acorn. I think he was expecting voter fraud to become an issue under Acorn's Poject Vote.
Matthew wrote: Disturbingly, Project Vote, ACORN’s scandal-plagued voter registration and mobilization division, remains open for business. Project Vote has been part of the ACORN family since at least 1992 when Barack Obama ran a successful voter drive in Illinois.

How ACORN Survives -- and Thrives
The Obama administration is stonewalling efforts on two fronts to investigate the still-operating ACORN and uncover what aid administration officials offered the radical advocacy group infamous for its thug tactics and election fraud.
The Obama administration is sitting on Capital Research Center's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that seeks correspondence between Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan and ACORN. HUD rules state that FOIA requests must be answered within 45 days, but at this writing our request has been pending for just over seven months.
Matthew Vadum
Matthew Vadum is a senior editor at Capital Research Center, a Washington, D.C. think tank that studies the politics of philanthropy with a special focus on left-wing advocacy groups.
During his seven years in the Washington bureau of The Bond Buyer, a daily financial newspaper based on Wall Street, he covered Congress, the Supreme Court, housing, and state and local finance. While a reporter for the Central Penn Business Journal in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he won an award for outstanding legal journalism from the Pennsylvania Bar Association for an article that focused on employment law.
Vadum is an expert on the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and has written more than 60 feature articles on the group and hundreds of blog posts. His groundbreaking research on ACORN was praised and cited by Michelle Malkin in her New York Times bestseller, Culture of Corruption. Malkin credits Vadum with being one of two people in the nation with the "foresight and insight in reporting on the [ACORN] story when no one else would." Vadum's work is also cited in David Freddoso's New York Times bestseller The Case Against Barack Obama, John Fund's Stealing Elections (revised edition), and Peter Schweizer's Architects of Ruin.
