In 2008, when Wade Rathke got caught for covering up his brother's theft of nearly 1 million dollars from ACORN, he formed a Union called, United Labor Unions Council Local 100. The ULUC will be signing up people for Obamacare in Louisiana. In the most recent Continuing Resolution, somehow the clause about banning money to ACORN vanished.
In 2009, thanks to an investigation sting run by James O'Keefe, ACORN was caught giving advice on topics from income tax evasion to pimping underage girls from South America. Money soon dried up and ACORN declared itself dead. They have changed their name but it's the same old people doing business the same old way.
ACORN has a long history of hiring felons and thanks to the Obama administration banning background checks, those people will soon have access to personal information of thousands of people.
"... it is ironic that America’s tax dollars are being doled out to an entity whose poor stewardship of our funds was well-established by Congress.”
- Dan Epstein, executive director of Cause of Action
Rathke could not be reached for comment, however, he did recently blog about with groups about Navigating in Louisiana.
Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Pa, who heads an oversight panel on the Navigator program said this:.
"With the administration rushing to hand out billions of dollars for the health law to countless groups, the potential for fraud and abuse is exceptionally high. The law's rollout has been a disaster, and we will continue our aggressive oversight of Navigators and all grant recipients on behalf of the American people to ensure taxpayer dollars are not misused or wasted."
