BROOKLYN, NY — April 6, 2015 — ACORN may be defunct, but it still gets a reappropriation in the budget. ACORN, which was closely tied to the labor-backed Working Families Party, was reconstituted New York Communities For Change, based in Brooklyn; ACORN’s former head, Bertha Lewis, started her own new nonprofit, the Black Institute. Will the Governor do the right thing and use his veto pen on this line item?
ACORN’s cash was a reappropriation of money not spent yet, however, beer, onions and pit bulls are granted monies in this year’s budget among other well-known entities like the Buffalo Bills.

The NY Post editorial opines on Obama’s big success and is well worth the read. On Friday, they wrote in part, “Obama also promised Thursday to “fully brief” Congress on this dubious deal (the Iran deal) and said he welcomes “a robust debate.” And he may even get that debate from some in New York that are democrats, but Senator Schumer seems to be ducking the discussion. Strange that he is, since he has a hard time ducking the press most of the time.
