Acorn gets slammed

Acorn has been voted on today, in the House of Representatives, to be defunded. That is not the only defunding bill that has come across and been voted on. The vote was 345 to 75, with only Democrats voting to keep the funding in Acorn. NY Democrat Meeks said "he needed more evidence" to make sure the fraud was systemic. Its been filmed five times now.. at five different Acorn offices across the country. It's ingrained in ACorn, entrenched, and it goes all the way from the top to the bottom. 70 Acorn employees have been convicted in voter fraud in twelve states (so far).

Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) has sponsored another amendment prohibiting the use of federal money for ACORN in the Interior and environment appropriations bills.

An amendment passed Thursday by an 85-11 vote was sponsored by Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb) prohibiting the use of federal money in the Interior and environment appropriations bills.

Earlier this week, Acorn got hit by that vote that was 83-7 prohibiting the use of federal money in Transportation and Housing and Urban Development spending bill.

It appears more amendments are going to make their way to the floor every time Acorn pops up. Its about time this wolf is stripped of its sheeps clothing, and put away.

Full story from The Hill.


  1. It is about time something is done about ACORN. The only federal funding they need is as prisoners making license plates and brooms...

  2. The prisoners used to make some really nice furniture.. I saw it at the Prison Museum up in Huntsville.

  3. Damn shame they stopped making plates (at least for Indiana)...the EMBOSSED plates sure beat these "decals on tinfoil" ones we have now.
    Prisoners CAN make a lot of good things...we just have to get their asses BACK OUT on a chain gang to rediscover them.
    That would AT LEAST get our ROADS repaired.

    But that's just "my" opinion.

    Good post.
