Report Finds Acorn Broke No Laws.

Fox News, Michelle Malkin, and the other right wing loons should be embarrassed and mortified by this latest report, but they won't be:

The controversial community organizing group Acorn has not broken any laws in the last five years, according to a Congressional Research Service report released Tuesday evening.

The report, requested by Representative John Conyers, Democrat of Michigan, said that federal agencies, mainly the Departments of Justice and Housing and Urban Development, have awarded money to the group 48 times since 2005. But, in none of those instances did Acorn violate the terms of their funding, the report said.

Since the 2008 elections, the group, which works primarily to expand voter registration and affordable housing, has become a key Republican target. A series of scandals brought to light by conservative activists led to multiple Congressional hearings and repeated attempts to deny it taxpayer funding.

Acorn has been the subject of scores of investigations—a total of 46 inquiries by federal, state, and local agencies, including the FBI and the Treasury Department, and five by Congress as of October 2009, according to the report.

The report found no evidence that voters attempting to cast ballots at the polls had been improperly registered by Acorn, a chief Republican accusation.

They simply won't report that their claims have been found to be utterly wrong and they'll still use the word Acorn as a synonym for all that is wrong with leftist thinking.

They really are a shameless bunch. And the truth matters not a jot to them.

How many pet conservative groups that get government money cannot say the same as Acorn?
