Rep. Patrick McHenry (NC) was published today on Andrew Breitbart's new blog, BigGovernment.com. Read an excerpt of his post here:
When ACORN was announced as a national partner with the Census Bureau, I had grave concerns that the accuracy and integrity of the 2010 census would be jeopardized.
One of ACORN’s responsibilities would have been to recruit census workers. Given ACORN’s propensity for falsifying government documents, it seemed illogical that their employees would now be handling census forms. The Census Bureau was, in effect, inviting fraud in the 2010 census.
As the Ranking Republican on the Census Oversight Subcommittee, I privately encouraged the Bureau to reconsider. Subsequently, the Bureau and I engaged in a confrontational public dispute over their relationship with ACORN.
