Judge: ACORN Funds Freeze Unconstitutional

A Clinton-appointed judge has issued a temporary injunction preventing the government from cutting off federal funding to the corrupt community organization ACORN:
The U.S. government's move this fall to cut off funding to ACORN was unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Friday, handing the embattled group a legal victory.
U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon issued the preliminary injunction against the government, saying it's in the public's interest for the organization to continue receiving federal funding.
In general, this is the kind of politically motivated lawsuit that is "judge shopped" by the plaintiffs to a ideologically blinded, easily manipulated jurist to get a desired outcome. Although the Obama Justice Department is probably thrilled with the result, the judge's decision demands an immediate appeal to a higher court.
