ACORN Used Public Funds For Partisan Projects?

Senate Republicans released documents than appears to show ACORN taking public funds meant to help the poor and transferred it to projects with political motives or profit generating operations. ACORN is often referred to unflattering as playing giant shell game, this would show that the shell game is hiding illegal activities.

"Documents released by a Senate Republican on Thursday show that leaders of the ACORN community organizing network transferred several million dollars in charitable and government money meant for the poor to arms of the group that have political and sometimes profit-making missions.

ACORN's tax-exempt groups and allied organizations, long a target of conservative ire, used more than half their charitable and public money in 2006 to pay other ACORN affiliates, according to an analysis by the tax staff of Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa).
