This is a really bad idea.

The 2010 census is right around the corner and Obama wants ACORN help out with count.

"It's a concern, especially when you look at all the different charges of voter fraud. And it's not just the lawmakers' concern. It should be the concern of every citizen in the country," Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., vice ranking member of the subcommittee for the U.S. Census, told "We want an enumeration. We don't want to have any false numbers."

The blatant power play by Obama in allowing ACORN to "help" with the census is dumbfounding.

ACORN, which claims to be a non-partisan grassroots community organization of low- and moderate-income people, came under fire in 2007 when Washington State filed felony charges against several paid ACORN employees and supervisors for more than 1,700 fraudulent voter registrations. In March 2008, an ACORN worker in Pennsylvania was sentenced for making 29 phony voter registration forms. The group's activities were frequently questioned in the 2008 presidential election.

Just in case you weren't aware, the census is what is used to apportion the House of Representative's 435 seats. If Obama follows through, don't be surprised if future representation is lacking in current republican districts.
