An ACORN presidency – an ACORN census

You remember Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, more commonly known “ACORN.” That is the “community organizers” infamous for fraudulent voter registration and helping to bring about the financial crisis.

When Obama told community organizers they will shape his presidency, I had no idea that ACORN would get to “organize” the country’s 2010 census:

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people.

But ACORN’s partnership with the 2010 Census is worrisome to lawmakers who say past allegations of fraud should raise concerns about the organization.

“It’s a concern, especially when you look at all the different charges of voter fraud. And it’s not just the lawmakers’ concern. It should be the concern of every citizen in the country,” Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., vice ranking member of the subcommittee for the U.S. Census, told FOXNews.com. “We want an enumeration. We don’t want to have any false numbers.”

Now that the Obama White House has taken control of the Census from the Commerce Department and with ACORN to help organize it, the 2010 census ought to bring all the change the Democrats could hope for.

What’s next? An ACORN judiciary?
