Republicans Call for Hearing on ACORN

 

   





Washington, D.C. – Judiciary Committee Republicans today sent a letter to Chairman John Conyers calling for a hearing on ACORN. Specifically, Republican members expressed concern about allegations of voter registration fraud and activities that undermine the integrity of our election process. 

Ranking Member Lamar Smith (R-Texas) issued the following statement urging Judiciary Committee Democrats to schedule a hearing on ACORN: 

“As guardians of the Constitution, members of the Judiciary Committee have a responsibility to look into allegations that ACORN employees have engaged in activities that undermine the integrity of our democracy. Despite numerous allegations of wrongdoing against ACORN, including voter registration fraud, the Democratic leadership in Congress continues to stonewall Republican requests for a full investigation. 

“The American people have a right to know the truth about ACORN’s activities. Congress should hold a hearing before the end of this year.” 

All 16 Republicans on the Judiciary Committee signed the letter to Chairman Conyers.
