But ACORN officials say that GOP operatives — and John McCain in specific — are fanning nonexistent flames. And while the group's Colorado operations are in the clear, it was mischaracterized as "under investigation today" by Republican Rep. Marilyn Musgrave during a debate last week with Democratic challenger Betsy Markey.
