We the members of the national board of the ACORN 8 formally demand an immediate suspension of all federal, state and local funding of ACORN until after an independent audit and Congressional hearings on ACORN and its related entities. And that all members BOYCOTT ACORN and immediately cease paying their dues until after the following;
Truth, Transparency and Accountability
The more ACORN and the more than 200 related organizations under its umbrella work to maintain complete control of its money, the more they hide. The more they hide, the greater the number of questions that arise.
Beth Kingsley, an ACORN attorney, reported her concerns about the lack of a firewall between political and other ACORN functions. Yet this porous behavior continues. Why is the same audit firm that allowed the embezzlement to be carried as a loan still the audit firm? Why is the 2005 audit uncompleted? Why is there so much resistance to a forensic audit? In a nutshell, what we want is answers to these questions. We want the truth. We want transparency. We want accountability for ACORN corruption and its leaders.
