(NECN: Boston, Mass.) - State Senator and U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown says he has filed a bill to suspend funding for ACORN, the advocacy group under national fire for misconduct and alleged voter fraud. "I'm disappointed that Attorney General Martha Coakley and Governor Deval Patrick did not agree with my request for an immediate and stern response to allegations of corruption involving ACORN," said Brown in a statement. "This is a group that has investigations, indictments and prosecutions pending against it around the nation. We should cut all our ties to ACORN until these issues have been resolved." According to the Boston Globe, a branch of the group, ACORN Housing, received a $33,000 grant last April from the Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation to counsel first-time homebuyers and homeowners facing possible foreclosure.
