In a move that's sure to anger the Big Cahoona (pictured above), the Census bureau cut ties with the community organizing group ACORN yesterday after the group's criminal activity was brought to light in hidden camera videos that hit the Internets earlier this week.
As most of you know, Barack Hussein Obama trained ACORN members in community organization tactics when he was an Illinois state senator.
What you probably don't know is, after Obama was elected president, his chief of staff, Rham Emanuel, attempted to seize control of the census bureau from the Commerce Department, but the power grab was shot down after a public outcry.
Shady Obama then announced ACORN as a "national partner" in the 2010 census. Obama and the Dems also funneled over $8 billion of your tax dollars to ACORN in the last stimulus package.
Part of the loot would have gone to hiring staff and training volunteers to "collect" census data in 2010.
The Democrats (and Obama) were counting on unscrupulous ACORN members to tamper with the collection "data" that would magically inflate the number of Democrats in urban districts and give the Democrats control over Congress in 2010.
But that won't be happening now, thanks to a very brave man who heads the Census bureau.
Robert M. Groves, Census director sent a letter to the National Headquarters of ACORN yesterday informing the group that it was severing all ties for the 2010 census work.
Citing "sufficient concern" from the public over past investigations against ACORN for multiple acts of voter registration fraud, Groves wrote:
“Unfortunately, we no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your many local offices. For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership."
Meanwhile two more ACORN workers were fired in Washington DC Friday after they were caught on tape advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to evade federal taxes and set up an illegal brothel in the city.
Less than 24 hours earlier, ACORN fired two Baltimore city workers who were also caught on hidden camera giving the same couple tips to evade taxes and smuggle underage girls into the country to be exploited as sex workers.
Not surprisingly, HotAir.com has learned that Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office is initiating an investigation -- not into ACORN's criminal activities -- but into a possible eavesdropping violation against filmmaker James O'Keefe (the fake pimp) because the audio portion of his videos "could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law."
Coincidentally, the State Attorney is a Democrat who donated the maximum amount to Obama's presidential campaign last year.
