UPDATE The Johanns Amendment # 2355 to H.R. 3288 passed by a margin of 83 to 7.

So, who said “nay?”  Burris (D) IL, Casey (D) PA, Durbin (D) IL, Gillibrand (D) NY, Leahy (D) VT, Sanders (I) VT, and Whitehouse (D) RI

TDN pays attention to details: Those who abstained should also be taken to task.

Senators who abstained from voting to cut off ACORN funding:

Burr (R-NC)
Byrd (D-WV)
Coburn (R-OK)
Graham (R-SC)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hutchison (R-TX)
McCain (R-AZ)
Mikulski (D-MD)

How much is too much?

…why is Congress still allowing taxpayer money to be funneled to the ACORN Housing Corporation?AHC has received an estimated $16 million in taxpayer funds between 1997-2007, according to the Employment Policies Institute.

This must end.  History links.  Add apartment management.  An untrustworthy housing fund — Housing bill has likely ACORN slush Fund.

ACORN Cracked:

What are our elected leaders covering up?  Congressman John Conyers (D-MI) said in March 2009 he would launch a probe into ACORN’s activities, but reversed course in June and told the Washington Times “the powers that be decided against it.”  Thus, no probe—no airing of just what ACORN has been up to.

Perhaps Conyers’ committee already knew what it was going to hear: ACORN’s “mob-style” tactics exposed!

Nebraska’s Sen Mike Johanns’ amendment  would block federal funding of  ACORN.
