Congress Should Say Nuts to ACORN (updated)

The Washington Examiner is quickly becoming a formidible publication with a bevy of first rate writers.

Today's expose of Congressional largesse to ACORN  by Kevin Mooney is a good example:
At least $53 million in federal funds have gone to ACORN activists since 1994, and the controversial group could get up to $8.5 billion more tax dollars despite being under investigation for voter registration fraud in a dozen states. The economic stimulus bill enacted in February contains $3 billion that the non-profit activist group (Snip) could receive, and 2010 federal budget contains another $5.5 billion that could also find its way into the group’s coffers.
Update - Clarice Feldman writes:

Days ago ACORN workers were indicted in Nevada. Today they are charged with registration wrongdoing in Pennsylvania.
Seven Pittsburgh-area ACORN workers were charged with falsifying voter registration forms, with six accused of doing so to meet the group's alleged quota system before last year's general election.District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. said he's hoping the workers charged Thursday will help authorities determine whether Allegheny County ACORN officials will be charged with requiring the illegal quotas or otherwise directing that voter registrations be faked.[snip]Six suspects forged a total of 51 cards, a felony that carries up to seven years in prison. The same six also were charged with illegally accepting payments to meet a quota of 20 registrations per day — a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.
