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 H.R. 3288 passed by a margin of 83 to 7. As stated at Michelle Malkin, “Johanns cited the BigGovernment.com 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 BigGovernment.com 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.
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?
