Here We Go–
Founding Bloggers is reporting that Illinois is receiving copious amounts of federal tax payer dollars to “boost awareness” for the upcoming census.
How are they planning on boosting awareness? By handing out millions of dollars to Obama-Progressive friendly groups.
A push to reverse low census participation in Illinois will soon be coming via barber, baby-sitter, tax preparer, librarian and even iTunes download, part of a first-of-its-kind collaboration by local charities.
The “Count Me In” project on Wednesday will announce $1.2 million in grants to 26 groups for census outreach in 37 traditionally undercounted Chicago neighborhoods and cities around Illinois.
Team Obama confirmed in April that they will use community organizations like ACORN for the census count.
ACORN will help count the illegal immigrants, or as Speaker Pelosi calls them, the “American patriots.”
CNS News reported, via Mere Rhetoric:
The acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Thomas Mesenbourg, told CNSNews.com that the bureau intends to work with community organizations to make sure every illegal alien in the United States is counted in the 2010 Census. The Census is used to apportion the seats in the U.S. House of Representative. There are 435 House seats that are divided among the states in proportion to their population, which is determined by the decennial census.
