FEMA Gives ACORN A Million Dollars

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has an editorial on the site Big Government about a grant from the Department of Homeland Security to ACORN.

From his editorial:

"Earlier this month and despite the public scrutiny over the voter fraud and felony criminal activity associated with ACORN, the Department of Homeland Security went ahead and granted $997,402 to ACORN under the FY 2008 Fire Prevention and Safety Program.

"To most people, the timing and the amount of the grant would seem off base, but when you take into account the fact that DHS awarded ACORN–an organization with no clear expertise in fire safety and prevention–a fire prevention and safety grant, it’s just plain offensive.

He has written to Janet Napolitano and asked that the funding be rescinded but has gotten no answer. He has also introduced a bill to prohibit any company that received funds from TARP and still owes from giving any money to ACORN.
