I received this letter from Michele Bachmann this morning, asking me to invite all my friends to participate in the call this evening. So here it is friends. Rep. Bachmann wants you and me, along with all the rest of concerned taxpayers in America to help her stop all federal funding of ACORN!
Join us in our effort to keep ACORN from receiving another taxpayer dollar!

I want to invite you to join me in a conference call tonight for an update on ACORN:
Thursday, September 17, 2009
8:10 pm to 9:10 pm ET
7:10 pm to 8:10 pm CT
Call in # 877-269-7289
The past week has seen a flurry of activity around this scandal-ridden organization. With headlines of more voter registration fraud arrests in Florida and undercover videos of ACORN employees giving advice to pimps and prostitutes in city after city, ACORN had a very bad week.
Bad enough that the U.S. Census Bureau finally headed our calls to sever its ties with ACORN! I’ve been telling them for months that ACORN has not earned the public trust and should not be a partner in the 2010 Census. After these headlines, they finally agree!
But, there’s more work to be done!
ACORN could be eligible for as much as $10 billion in federal funds and that’s simply unacceptable! We need no more evidence that the organization is either unable or unwilling to live up to the ethical standards that the American people demand.
No one has a right to your tax dollars — especially not an organization with ACORN’s track record!
I’m continuing my fight to protect the American taxpayer. In fact, I’ve asked the IRS to revoke their tax-exempt status and I’ve asked the Department of Housing and Urban Development to bar them from any federal funds.
Please invite your friends to join our call, sign my online petition and join our fight to stop the flow of your tax dollars to ACORN! Visit my Online Action Center Here!
Thank you, and God bless,
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
