Connie Hair at Human Events has the news:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has issued a stay on the December 2009 injunction by Clinton-appointed Judge Nina Gershon that declared the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) funding ban was unconstitutional.

The result of the stay is that the Congressional funding ban will go back into effect, and ACORN will not receive taxpayer dollars while the court reviews the case.

“I applaud the Court of Appeals for immediately addressing the effects of Judge Gershon’s attempt to legislate from the bench,” said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif), top Republican on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. “Today’s action immediately restores the congressionally mandated ban on funding ACORN and its affiliates as a result of their criminal conduct and wasting of taxpayer dollars. Congress does have the constitutional right to deny an organization the benefit of taxpayer dollars.”

In related news, ACORN’s Bertha Lewis proclaims the resurrection of the community organizing racket and Matthew Vadum reports that the “dissolved” ACORN is still grubbing for money from donors.
