House votes to deny all federal funds for ACORN

Now, investigate them and get our money back.

Listent as the AP writer, Abrams, tries to blame Republicans and cover for 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.

On Monday the Senate voted 83-7 to deny housing and community grant funding to ACORN, which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now."


Remember, the Democrats control both houses of Congress and could have stopped this if they wanted to. So, if Democrats are in control, why wasn't this a Democrat-led "strike"? Abrams inadvertently shows the Republicans are at least leading.

Next, Abrams tries to downplay ACORN's voter fraud crimes.

"Republicans accelerated their attacks on the liberal-leaning group a year ago when ACORN, in conducting a massive voter registration drive, was accused of submitting some false registration forms
."

Nasty Republicans. Imagine the nerve of them trying to stop voter fruad. As for the "some", 30 ACORN employees have now been convicted.

Notice also that Abrams leaves out the part about child sex slavery.

That's your left wing media, or as some call it now, the fringe media.
