How to Lie With Statistics

Americans for Limited Government today announced the launching of a new nationwide campaign, StopAcorn.org, urging President Bush to investigate allegations of serious wrongdoing by the left-wing community action organization ACORN. “With the launching of StopAcorn.org, and a massive outreach efforts to… Continue reading Investigate Acorn
