NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo Opens Investigation Into ACORN

Breaking: New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is launching an investigation into ACORN!! From the NY Post article:

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.

ACORN in New York has been pretty well taken care of by NY legislators.

The group and its affiliates have received at least $1.5 million in city and state legislative grants in the last four years, according to a Post review of grant records.

Council budgets from fiscal years 2010, 2009 and 2008 show members showered ACORN and its affiliates with at least $644,500.

ACORN and the tax-exempt affiliate featured in the video, New York ACORN Housing Company, have received at least $890,000 in pork from state lawmakers in the last four years

I may be able to return to New York after all…
