A federal appeals court in New York City has thrown out a decision that barred Congress from withholding funds from the activist group ACORN.Wonder if Rachel Maddow will continue to refer to this as some "bogus" issue FOXNews made up just to "scare white people".
The ruling Friday reverses a decision by a district court. That judge found Congress had violated ACORN's rights by punishing it without a trial.
ACORN describes itself as an advocate for low-income and minority home buyers and residents.
Critics say the group has engaged in voter registration fraud and embezzlement. They say it has violated the tax-exempt status of some of its affiliates by engaging in partisan political activities.
