Who DIDN'T vote to defund ACORN?

Yesterday the House voted 345-75 to ban all federal funding for the scandal-plagued advocacy group Acorn. Coming on the heels of the Census Bureau's dissociation with Acorn last week and the Senate's Monday vote denying it housing funds, this is a welcome decision.

But the fact that there were 75 "no" votes is shocking, even for this Congress. All of the nays came from Democrats. Along with far-left backbenchers, they included Charles Rangel, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, and Henry Waxman, who heads the Energy and Commerce Committee. Both are key leaders in the ObamaCare effort.

One of Acorn's leading Congressional enablers has been Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts. Last year Mr. Frank appeared in a promotional video for "Acorn's Grassroots Democracy Campaign," and this year he led the effort to repeal a year-old legal provision barring groups from receiving housing subsidies while under indictment for voter fraud. This he called "a violation of the basic principles of due process." Mr. Frank was absent yesterday when the House voted to defund Acorn, although he had been on the House floor for another vote just half an hour earlier.

The House vote came a day after the release of the latest video by freelance investigators James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, who crisscrossed the country posing as a pimp and prostitute. Employees in at least five different Acorn offices offered them help in setting up a child-prostitution business. If that isn't enough to persuade 75 Democrats to stop supporting Acorn with taxpayer money, one can only conclude that the only way they'd defund the outfit is if it endorsed the war in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Good, I'm glad those fuckers lost all their federal funding. They had it coming.

75 Dems voted to keep their funding. That's insane right there.

The notable ones that voted for it are notorious crooks anyway. Rangel, if he was in the private sector, would be in jail for tax fraud.

Well, if the 75's constituency has any sense at all, they will see this as the rep signing his/her own death warrant. These people DO NOT need to be re-elected.

I'm not suprised, but as soon as this story broke the CEO of ACORN pulled the race card out. The left is going to find out that folks are tired of being called racists. Especially when the folks they keep calling racists are the same people that voted for a black man. Here is a video of the CEO pulling the race card but she doesn't do it to the very end of the video. Whats amazing is if you go to google and search CEO of ACRON pulls race card and look at the results. Obama's name is plastered all over the place and it seems alot of folks are getting sick and tired of this bull shit.

TRAIN TRASH it's like WHITE TRASH but with money.

Don't cupple up without protection.

If I'm not mistaken (and I may be as I didn't research it very much), I think the Repubs put an amendment on this bill to pull the funding for Acorn. I think that was a bill that was both going to pass and was current, so the Acorn amendment went in. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that's common practice.

It is common practice, which is exactly the point. It's all this piggybacking of bullshit amendments that has us where we are...

Its about time someone brought up Acorn's shady transactions. If our govt. looked more into organizations like Acorn they would find that the majority of them are defrauding the system. Imagine how much money the govt. would save!
But then the whole nagger community would rise in arms to protest claiming racism.
