If only ACORN were a bank! They'd get trillions in bailout money!
The liberal political organizing group ACORN faced internal chaos and allegations of financial mismanagement and fraud long before two young conservatives embarrassed the group with undercover videos made at field offices in Washington and across the country.
Chaos, internal mismanagement, and fraud*? If ACORN were banksters, Obama'd be throwing 'em trillions! There's your problem right there....

NOTE * Assuming for the sake of the argument that WaPo's story is correct, of course.
NOTE DownWithTyranny makes a good point:
Can the Democrats attach an amendment to the motion to defund any federal corporate contractor that has been found guilty of violating a federal law with those funds? That would pretty much kill the amendment in its tracks since the list of corporate felons is pretty infinitely long. The fact that corporations with active fraud histories continue to receive federal funds while ACORN is being defunded based on a video of a couple of idiot employees offering advice that was never actually processed in any financial form is incredible.
