That's like saying the optical corporation isn't responsible for any fraud committed by the salespeople in my office, or that your insurance corp. isn't responsible if one of your agents outright lies.
It's irrelevant if those employees are temporary or permanent, they're still Acorn's employees. It's Acorn's responsibility for making sure those employees are vetted properly and for turning in accurate registration cards--Acorn is the one with the gov't contract, not the temp workers. It's obvious Acorn at best didn't care about checking the cards, and at worst endorsed this activity.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
