Housing is just one of the many facets of ACORN's involvment. It would be interesting to see if the corruption leaks into other aspects of ACORN. Since they've admitted to voter fraud in the 2008 election, I would say there is ALOT more dirt to uncover. ACORN probably needs to be investigaged altogether. Until there is something conclusive to the investigations, Congress should freeze all further funding.

People in their disricts need to make sure as many as possible know what this bums did and that they must support child prostitution. Also conservatives must try to gain jobs with ACORN and expose them at every opportunity.

ACORN has received $53 million in taxpayer funds since 1994.

No more.

It looks like the gravy train is about to be cut off.

The Left has never been able to stand people finding out what they're really doing. I guess some things never change.

Senate votes to deny funds to ACORN

by ANDREW TAYLOR
The Associated Press
Monday, September 14, 2009; 6:50 PM

WASHINGTON -- The Senate voted Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN, a community organization under fire in several voter-registration fraud cases. The 83-7 vote would deny housing and community grant funding to ACORN....

Excellent news.

Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., said last week that the videos suggest multiple incidents of tax fraud, and called for a hearing to investigate ACORN's tax filing assistance programs.

"In light of the apparent flagrant and willful attempts to suborn tax fraud, I ... (am seeking) a hearing of the Oversight Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee as soon as practicable to investigate ACORN's activities," he said Friday.

Of all my friends who are political, I have yet to hear one Democrat defend ACORN. In fact, I don't even know what they'er all about.. My Republican friends bring that group up constantly. But we don't know why the heck they like to talk about ACORN so much. I know FNC brigns them up 100x/day. I also know they are one of the most overused acronyms of the decade.

Amazing.

Leahy and Durbin should know better but I guess they are in ACORNS pockets also.

Casey is probably the most psycho minded of them all. The man is flat out scary.

These names should be on billboards so we cannot forget them.
