Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order to keep any state money from going to the controversy-wracked Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has its national headquarters in New Orleans.


According to the state’s Division of Administration, no state agencies have existing contracts with ACORN.


Think Progress » Jindal blocks non-existent state funding for ACORN.


Ooops, poor Bobby...

Do you have a more reliable news source? I searched and found nothing in any mainstream media source about this.

Here is the story:

Jindal Bans La. State Contracts With Acorn - WGNO

He wants to be sure that there is nothing going to any subsidiaries of ACORN either.

Quote:
But Sellers said the governor wants his cabinet secretaries and all state departments, boards, commissions and agencies to scour their contracts and subcontracts to ensure no such funding exists - or is planned - for ACORN or any of its subsidiaries.

ACORN isn't a corporation, it's a non-profit organization.

"me-me"?? Liberals? The ones who want things for others? Who care about and want to help their fellow Americans? More right wing projecting. It's the right wingers who are constantly whining "mine-mine."
