Hitting Them Where It Hurts

Senator Mike Johanns sponsored  amendment#2355 to H.R. 3288 for the purpose of banning funds in the current transportation and housing appropriations bill from going to ACORN.  The amendment passed by a vote of 83-7.  Here are the seven Democrats that support providing ACORN federal funds to help people start prostitution rings for underage illegal immigrant girls:

Burris (D-IL)
Casey (D-PA)
Durbin (D-IL)
Gillibrand (D-NY)
Leahy (D-VT)
Sanders (I-VT)
Whitehouse (D-RI)

Illinois you win the double ding dong award for having BOTH of your senators vote against the amendment…gotta a little work to do there! 

If you have a senator on the “I support federal funds for prostitution” bandwagon I would urge you to give them a call!  ACORN is still eligible to receive taxpayer funds through mortgage counseling, Community Development Block Grants, and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.  The only way we can put an end to this corrupt group is to continue to hack away at the federal funds crucial to their survival.

    Great article, Beth. Makes me sad for my home state of Illinois. Calling all Illinois voters, take your state back and kick these guys out of office!
