ACORN Under Federal Scrutiny

This inquiry is long overdue and let's hope it is a real investigation rather than just a whitewash, but the congressman is correct that given the magnitude of the corruption, the FBI should also come into the case:
The Government Accountability Office has opened an investigation into ACORN’s use of taxpayer dollars, two House Republicans said Thursday.
Reps. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) made the announcement in the course of demanding a separate FBI investigation into the group.
“Only an independent criminal investigation conducted by the FBI can get to the bottom of the nationwide allegations against ACORN,” Smith said in a news release.
The GAO investigation will be completed jointly with the executive branch’s inspector general.
