Official reponse to MyTwoCensus from the Census Bureau over ACORN issues…
Stephen L. Buckner of the U.S. Census Bureau wrote the following to us:
“Any charge or claim that a Census Bureau partner could influence or have
direct input into census operations is baseless and inaccurate. The sole
entity that will conduct the 2010 Census is the U.S. Census Bureau, along
with its hundreds of thousands of dedicated workers.
Further, the Census Bureau has strict quality assurance procedures in every
operation to prevent the introduction of errors and/or fraudulent
information into the national count.
The Census Bureau remains committed to producing an accurate 2010 Census
count — counting everyone once, only once, and in the right place.”
More analysis coming tomorrow as we mull over this response…
