Pawlenty Orders Halt To Minnesota Funding of ACORN -- Which Reportedly Does Not Exist
Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN), a potential presidential candidate in 2012, has taken the bold step of ordering his state government to suspend and review all funding of ACORN -- a move sure to please the GOP base.

But here's the catch, according to the Star Tribune: ACORN says that they don't have any funding from the state of Minnesota. A spokesman for the group told the paper that ACORN has never received money from the state government, "and there's certainly not a dime to cut off right now."

Pawlenty's order to the state Management and Budget Commissioner ordered a halt to all ACORN funding "unless the state is legally obligated," and to conduct a "thorough" investigation into the state's relationship with ACORN.

7. Somebody want to change Timmeh's nappy?
Sounds like another case of Republican faux outrage overload. Thank the good lord above, though, that the bulldogs of the Fourth Estate will never ever bring this stupidity up again to throw in the face of the Right Honorable Governor of Minnesota. Pawlenty and the Republicans know that they can never act so stupidly as to invite actual ridicule from the popular media.
