The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has suspended funding of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) following reports of embezzlement, according to CCHD executive director Ralph McCloud. The CCHD has given over $7.3 million to ACORN projects in the past decade despite concerns raised over the years by the Wanderer Forum Foundation, the Capital Research Center, and others.
US bishops’ agency suspends ACORN funding
Good for CCHD. I've been appalled by ACORN's brute thuggery as of late, hammering poor people into multiple voter registrations with promises of cash and cigarettes. It's outrageous. Whether the Bishops are trying to distance themselves from ACORN's highly suspicious activities or if a straw finally broke the proverbial camel's back, I don't know. I just am happy they've washed their hands of ACORN.
