BofA, ACORN Go Their Own Ways

Two of America’s most unpopular organizations have, sadly, decided to go the tough road ahead alone: According to a statement, Bank of America has "suspended current commitments" to ACORN, an affiliated group, and "will not enter into any further agreements with ACORN or any of its affiliates," pending assessments by the bank of the organization's operations. BofA and America had worked together since the 1990s, with ACORN counseling first-time homebuyers on how to handle mortgage debt.
