No IRS VITA "Seed" Money for ACORN

The Internal Revenue Service recently awarded about $8,000,000 in matching grants for its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program and the controversial community group ACORN was not among the receipents. ACORN was recently embarrassed by amateur videos of its activities subsequently shown on conservative outlets such as the Big Government website and Hannity's Fox News show. Among the almost 150 groups which did receive VITA funding were the Bay Area (CA) United Way and AARP.

I am somewhat puzzled as to why taxpayers are providing $8 million for a VOLUNTEER activity in the first place. Having said that, ACORN certainly must be a less worthy recipient that those who did receive awards.
