The Census Director has sent a letter to the National Headquarters of ACORN notifying the group that the Census Bureau is severing all ties with the community organizing group for all work having to do with the 2010 census.

The news follows the firing Friday of two more ACORN employees after new hidden-camera footage showed workers for the group advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to subvert the law.

for those of you who didnt see the video, here (http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/30321/?ck=1) it is. i know you all dont like Glenn Beck, but thats just where i went to find the video. its like 9 min though, so you dont need to watch the whole thing, if you watch it at all.

however i still cant believe they would do this though. how can you tell a 20 year "prostitute" to be proud of here job?

It's not Glenn Beck that wins, it's the country. The less idiocy & corruption there is in the government, the better.

^ Wait, wait, you don't believe less whack jobs advising the POTUS & less corruption in the government is good?

It's not a matter of politics. When that happens, the country is better for it.

What's that noise? I think it's :cricket: :cricket:.

Was anyone defending these actions? Is there any question as to whether the Census shouldn't have severed ties?

Not when there already was another. I'm fine with an ACORN thread but 2 on the same day basically covering the same thing? Really?

this one was first, and they were not made on the same day.

the other one is a poll.
