Justice Department Seeks to Reverse ACORN Ruling

The AP reports:

The government has asked a federal judge to let it cut ACORN’s funding, saying a report commissioned by the embattled community activist reinforces Congress’ concern about misuse of federal funds.In papers filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, government lawyers sought a reversal of Judge Nina Gershon’s ruling last week that the government’s cutoff of ACORN funding was unconstitutional.

Gershon said ACORN was punished by Congress without “judicial, or even administrative, process adjudicating guilt.”
