Trey Grayson Takes On ACORN. Good For Him. Read More Below.

Dear Friends,

I am sure you have seen recent reports exposing the corruption of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) after several of their employees were caught on hidden video attempting to aid tax evasion, prostitution and other illegal activities.

This is the same group that was investigated for turning in fraudulent voter registration cards in several states in the last election.
Unfortunately our tax dollars have been funding this left-wing organization for years. Since 1994 ACORN has received at least $53 million in taxpayer funding. Republicans in Congress are working to cut off the funding and asking federal agencies to rescind recently awarded grants, but according to a recent report "House

Democratic leaders are making no promises that the defunding measures will actually make it into the final version of the housing appropriations bill."
As your Secretary of State I am proud to have taken action against ACORN and other groups engaging in "pay-per-card" voter registration activities in Kentucky. I wrote a bill in 2006 that prohibits payment to individuals for voter registration activities based on the number of voters registered. We were able to find bi-partisan sponsors for this bill who shepherded it to passage in the Kentucky General Assembly, and that law has prevented voter fraud shenanigans in Kentucky similar to what ACORN was accused of undertaking in other states in 2008.

Incredibly, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has rejected a call by 28 Republican Senators to hold a Congressional inquiry into the activities of ACORN. If I am elected as your U.S. Senator next year, I will continue my efforts to fight voter fraud and corruption.

The activities of ACORN and its employees and directors deserve close scrutiny, and those who have violated the law should be prosecuted.
If you want to write Harry Reid to demand an investigation of this corrupt organization, you may email him here.

Thanks for your support for my campaign for U.S. Senate.


Trey Grayson
