House Follows Senate Lead, Votes to Defund ACORN
Well, I’ll be brutally honest… I was skeptical that Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives would do it, but it looks like they, too, have pulled the plug on ACORN.
WASHINGTON – The House voted Thursday to deny all federal funds for ACORN in a GOP-led strike against the scandal-tainted community organizing group that comes just three days after the Senate took similar action. “ACORN has violated serious federal laws, and today the House voted to ensure that taxpayer dollars would no longer be used to fund this corrupt organization,” said second-ranked House Republican Eric Cantor of Virginia.
The vote, on a provision attached to a student aid bill, was 345-75, with Democrats supplying all the “no” votes.
Congrats to all those who voted to remove this criminal enterprise from the federal trough; shame on those who voted to keep sending our tax dollars to this group.
