Guess who's still on the list of 'HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agencies'?
As of September 28, 2009, the Department of Housing and Urban Development still lists ACORN as one its "HUD Approved Housing Counseling Agencies."
Today, one of ACORN's biggest corporate partners -- Bank of America -- announced that it has "suspended current commitments" to Acorn Housing and "will not enter into any further agreements with Acorn or any of its affiliates" pending a review.
It's bad enough that ACORN has received the fourth-most taxpayer money -- roughly $25 million -- since late 2007 for distressed mortgage borrowers.
It's an absolute disgrace they're still permitted to receive any funds from taxpayers -- through HUD or anyone else.
