ACORN Hits Back at Bachmann
The Minnesota Independent’s Andy Birkey has the details:
Days after Rep. Michele Bachmann [R-Minn.] launched a petition against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, ACORN is shooting back with a petition of its own.
“When you pick on ACORN, you pick on ME!” the petition says. “Congresswoman Michele Bachmann would rather pick on ACORN than stop the foreclosure crisis — even though Bachmann’s district has the highest rate of foreclosures in Minnesota.”
In April, the Minnesota Independent found that Bachmann’s 6th Congressional District had Minnesota’s highest rate of foreclosures as a percentage of households, at 1.80 percent.
