And Also, NYC Freezes ACORN Funding


I'd hit that like Ike Turner wanting to know
what she was doing for three hours with Berry Gordy.

Arousing attention:

State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo yesterday launched an investigation into pork-barrel grants given to ACORN by state lawmakers, as City Council Speaker Christine Quinn froze all city funding earmarked for the scandal-scared community-activism organization.

....Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes opened an investigation into the local office in response to a report in The Post.

Um, really? In response to a report in The Post?

Okay. If you say so.

A spokesman for Cuomo said the attorney general would seek to make sure pork-barrel grants directed to ACORN by state lawmakers were spent on tax-preparation and loan-counseling services, as intended.

"We are now closely monitoring that investigation to preserve the integrity of state funds," Cuomo spokesman Richard Bamberger said.

"We will be reviewing member-item contracts involving ACORN in light of the district attorney's investigation."

Read the whole thing. For the moment, while the heat's on, the state seems serious about freezing every ACORN dollar and subjecting the pork City Council members throw its way to "special scrutiny."
