The U.S. Supreme Court has denied a petition for review, ruling in effect that Congress was absolutely entitled to cut off federal taxpayer funding of ACORN, the depraved radicals who used to employ President Obama, according to reports.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now had asked the high court to review a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit which found that the funding cutoff was not a “bill of attainder” banned by the Constitution. ACORN had advanced the nonsensical argument that Congress had no power to stop funding the group unless it could prove it had done something wrong.
ACORN became well known nationwide in 2009 for its advocacy of brothels for pedophiles. Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe caught the group on undercover video offering advice on importing underage illegal alien sex slaves from El Salvador, tax fraud, and tax evasion.
