ACORN does have tax-exempt status?

Jesus, this never ends.

Yesterday, state Sen. Jeff Mullis, R-Chicamauga, was blasted by ACORN, the controversial grassroots organization that was accused of voter fraud during last year's presidential campaign, for the lawmaker's resolution that urges the Internal Revenue Service yank its tax-exempt status. ACORN said it didn't have such status.

There was much guffawing. But blogger Anita Moncrief says Mullis was right.

Sentator Mullis was correct in calling for ACORN’s tax exempt status to be revoked because it does have one, it just happens to be registered in the name of Project Vote. Civil RICO charges filed on January 7, 2008 allege what the liberal voter registration world has known for years. The complaint details a report done by ACORN’s own lawyer Elizabeth Kingsley. The complaint also quotes part of the document that was leaked to the New York Times.

There's lot more to Moncrief's argument, which can be viewed through the link. (Click that little word "says" up there. Success!)

(A big tip of the hat is due to Jason Pye, who along with Chris Farris, is providing great Gold Dome coverage this session at Georgia Legislative Watch.)
