The Nut has Been Cracked: Senate Votes to Cut Off Federal Funding for ACORN


ACORN’s excellent adventure, this is going to leave a mark.

What a difference a week makes as a community of corruption is exposed.

The US Senate has voted to defund ACORN housing as The Johanns Amendment # 2355 to Acorn_crackedH.R. 3288 passed by a margin of 83 to 7. As stated at Michelle Malkin, “Johanns cited the sting videos as evidence that ACORN cannot be trusted with government money.”

Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to the HUD and Transportation appropriation bill to strip ACORN of all federal funding. As stated by Hot Air, a week ago this amendment wouldn’t have gotten the amendment to the floor. However, that was before released not one, not two, but three video exposing ACORN and their child prostitution supporting ways. Andrew Breitbart has also promised more.

Here are the seven Senators that are against an amendment that would punish an organization that is pro-child prostitution, whoring and pimping. NICE!

Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Roland Burris (D-IL)
Robert Casey (D-PA)
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Now law makers look to have an IRS audit and go after ACORN’s 5013(c) non-profit status.

“We are going to be taking a look at the situation,” Schmetterer said Monday.

A spokesman for Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said ACORN’S tax status as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization should also be probed.

BTW … where was the MSM in this story? No where, just like with Green czar Van Jones. It took the new media and the Internet to crack this nut and show the light of truth.

Senate Votes to Deny Funds to ACORN

Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb., said that ACORN has received $53 million in taxpayer funds since 1994 and that the group was eligible for a wider set of funding in the pending legislation, which funds housing and transportation programs.

What next for ACORN and those community organizer?

      Think about it, child prostitution -

      Those enablers of predators should not be only fired, they should be criminally charged, were it only possible.

      …and ACORN is angry at O’Keefe.

      Another DIVERSION much like the Van Jones thing….does anyone really think ACORN or one of it subsidaries or sister groups will not receive funds channeled from somewhere else OR they will not be helping the Census in 2010?

      Another video is coming out today on ACORN. They are partners with SEIU. SEIU has CA. in a strangle hold and bleeds money from tax payers. Time for both of these leech groups to brought down.

      Now would be the time for investigative reporting
      if we had any of those folks that were not captive
      government guided robots. The ACORN is not about
      to fold up it’s tent and fade into the desert, so,
      we must do the work normally left up to FOX News
      and find out what the new name for the gang is.
      They are chameleon-like in their persistence.
      Cancer is also hard to overcome.

      Holden’s silence on Acorn speaks volumes.
      A special prosecutor is needed ASAP. But Obama does not want to go down with is barrel of rotten apples.
