It’s strangely but pleasantly ironic that on the evening of Obama’s “Day of Community Service” that the Census Bureau would blow out one of Obama’s favorite community service organizations, but that’s just what happened yesterday:
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.
“Over the last several months, through ongoing communication with our regional offices, it is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with the 2010 Census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 Census efforts,” read a letter from Census Director Robert M. Groves to the president of ACORN.
Well there goes any chance at a fair and honest count of pimps and prostitutes. And I’m guessing Democrats lost thousands if not millions of imaginary or dead voters that would have been discovered during the census.
Keep an eye out though. The people at the helm of organizations like ACORN have plenty of resources, so something similar will be back under a new label. There are 30,000 groups and organizations “partnering” with the Census Bureau in the count, so it wouldn’t be tough to sneak back in under a different name.
Let’s take a quick census as a reminder… how many famous people do you count in this picture:
That wasn’t the ACORN he knew.
