WASHINGTON (AP) — A government audit says the advocacy group ACORN should reimburse the government $3.2 million for failing to adequately show that lead removal work was performed at a reasonable cost.

The auditors also say some grant money was spent inappropriately, including for political campaigns and fundraising.

Congress already has cut off ACORN's federal funding after allegations of voter registration fraud and embezzlement.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development's inspector general looked at spending designed to eliminate lead poisoning.

About $2 million was questioned because the group didn't document open competition by contractors. Another $1.2 million was found to have been spent on ineligible activities.
