After three days and three videos (two of which are here and here) showing ACORN employees at three different ACORN locations aiding a pimp and his whore evade taxes, commit bank fraud, break immigration laws, and place children in dire situations, the Senate has voted to terminate all federal funding for the liberal front group and Barack Obama's favorite organization. Finally, a bill I can support out of this Democrat hell hole of a Congress. This comes just one day after the Census Bureau announced it will no longer use ACORN as an assistant during the national census next year.
There were seven dissenting votes on the ammendment, sponsored by Mike Johanns (R-NE), all of which were liberal Democrats and self proclaimed socialists. They are the usual suspects:
- 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)
Hot Air is reporting that several Democrats voted against the amendment at the outset of the vote, only to change their minds. Many could be heard shouting, "I want to change my vote!" Among those who suddenly had a meeting with reason were (again all Democrats) Tom Udall, Frank Lautenberg and Herb Kohl.
Meanwhile, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, the two young patriots exposing this catastrophe, are being threatened with lawsuits from ACORN. James O'Keefe says, "Bring it on!":ACORN stood to gain billions (!) of dollars from the stimulus. Maybe we could use all of that money to buy Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) a new face. Poor guy.
