This is the latest press release sent out by the organization that has been the center of controversy in recent weeks. Apparently, the group is not getting involved in Houston politics this election season. Here is the press release:
The Texas ACORN Political Action Committee has announced that it will not endorse candidates in the November 3, 2009 Houston City Election.
“Given the controversy surrounding the national organization and specifically offices on the East Coast, our Houston members have decided to steer clear of politics for the upcoming local elections,” said Joe Lewis, Texas ACORN PAC Treasurer. “Some people are trying to use ACORN as a political football, but the work we do on behalf of everyday Houstonians who are trying to stay out of foreclosure, keep the lights on, and get health insurance is too important to let that happen. ACORN’s PAC will not endorse any candidates or ballot issues in the
upcoming November 3rd election.”
