A government audit said Tuesday that the advocacy group ACORN should pay back $3.2 million in federal funding, mostly because it hasn't shown that its lead-removal work was performed at a reasonable cost.
It looks like the congenitally corrupt, still-operating Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) won't be getting any more U.S. tax dollars - for the time being.

Mr. Schwartz said ACORN Associates' contracting practices were known to HUD officials and expressly or implicitly approved before money was spent.
