There were great concerns at every level (except the President's Office) that ACORN would misrepresent the number of people in various parts of the country. What was even greater concern was the possibility that ACORN would use "averaging" to dream up the make up of many cities and help redraw voting districts in favor of the Democratic Party.

Let's see where the Obama Administration goes from here. Maybe they'll just go direct and hire the SEIU, another very shady group.
