Feds blacklist crooked Murtha-linked firm. Why can't they cut off ACORN? 

Clearly, this contractor should follow in ACORN's footsteps and assert his right to your money:

A defense contractor with ties to Rep. John Murtha has been suspended again from bidding on government contracts, this time for paying more than $200,000 in kickbacks to another contractor turned government witness. Kuchera Defense Systems Inc., of Windber, was suspended Dec. 22 for allegedly paying off Richard Ianieri. Ianieri is awaiting sentencing Feb. 23 in U.S. District Court in Pensacola, Fla. after pleading guilty in July to fraud stemming from a research contract at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.?

As we editorialized recently, there are many situations in which the federal government simply refuses to do business with crooked organizations, including defense contractors and doctors who cheat Medicare and Medicaid. Why should ACORN, after it was caught on tape abetting tax and mortgage fraud, continue to get business from taxpayers via the Department of Housing and Urban Development or any other government agency?
