Good news on the anti-corruption front

Byron York reports in the Washington Examiner that the Census Bureau has severed its relationship with the organized crime syndicate known as ACORN.
In the wake of devastating video reports revealing corruption at local offices of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, the U.S. Census Bureau has cancelled its agreement calling for ACORN to work on the 2010 census.

"The Census Bureau has established criteria for partnerships…and reserves the right to decline partnership or terminate an existing partnership agreement with any group that 1) may create a negative connotation for the Census Bureau; 2) could distract from the Census Bureau's mission; or 3) may make people fearful of participating in the census," wrote Census Director Robert Groves in a letter today to ACORN President Maud Hurd. "To that end…we are today terminating our Partnership Agreement with ACORN."
ACORN, and its affiliated organizations across the country, are set to receive upwards of $4 billion in federal funding through the stimulus. The Obama Administation has been aggressively working to turn over large parts of next year's decennial census to ACORN, which would have put a group dedicated to rampant voter fraud in charge of counting voters.
