ACORN finally Defunded! Now how about OCHLA?

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that a district court judge made a mistake by slapping an injunction on a congressional order to stop the flow of federal funds to Obama's nuts at ACORN. The original and misguided judicial decision interfered with the 2009 Protect Taxpayers from ACORN Act & congressional authority to control how government revenues are raised and spent.

Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns, sponsor of the Protect Taxpayers from ACORN Act, said the appeals court ruling affirms that access to federal funds is "a privilege, not a right." Johanns points out in his press release that ACORN has been under investigation for voter fraud in several states, more than 70 ACORN officials have already been convicted of fraud and since 1994, ACORN has received $53 million in federal funding according to a report by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Now we need to defund the Ohio Commission on Hispanic Latino Affairs (OCHLA). OCHLA is an Ohio state agency created in 1977 to advise the Governor, General Assembly and other state agencies on the needs of Spanish-speaking citizens. OCHLA, receiving in excess of $500,000 from the State of OH, has routinely operated as an ACORN type group by actively lobbying the state legislature to provide favorable treatment for illegal aliens in Ohio.

A complaint against OCHLA has been filed with Ohio Inspector General Tom Charles, but Charles is doing his best to ignore the complaint in attempts to shield Gov. Strickland in the upcoming 2010 elections.

It would also be a safe bet that OCHLA has most likely played a hand in the Justice Dept. singling out Cuyahoga County and demanding they print bilingual ballots at an extra cost of $500,00 for the upcoming 2010 elections.

Facing a projected $8 billion hole in our state budget, Gov. Strickland should be ashamed for his continued support & funding of this ACORN for Illegal Immigrants group.
