House passes bill to defund ACORN 345-75

From Michelle Malkin’s blog:

The US House today joined the Senate in voting to defund ACORN, the community advocacy group beset by allegations of voter registration fraud and videotapes apparently showing employees advising conservative activists posing as a prostitute and pimp how to break the law.

The measure, offered as part of a motion on a student loan bill, passed by a vote of 345-75, according to the office of House Republican leader John Boehner.

The Senate voted earlier this week to withdraw housing and urban development funding. Last week, the Census Bureau severed ties with ACORN, which on Wednesday said it is suspending accepting new clients during an investigation.

But congressional Republicans are calling for all federal funds to be cut off and for a Justice Department investigation.

Every last one of the 75 No votes were Democrats. Shameful! has the complete list of votes, including one who voted “present” and 8 who did not vote at all. See if any of your Congress Members still supports ACORN.

There are 75 people who certainly deserve to be replaced by anything with a pulse next election.

Not surprised to see Rangel, Waters, Clyburn, Ellison, Jackson-Lee, McDermott, Linda Sánchez, and Waxman on that list.

The worst of the worst voted to save ACORN. They probably did it because they know there is little chance of getting reelected without voter fraud.

It's great that they want to defund ACORN.
The bad part about this is that the House tacked the ACORN defunding onto their "Student Loans Bill" that will nationalize the student loan industry. Now it goes to the Senate.
This student loan takeover is something Obama has been wanting to do all along.

How stupid is that? We are desperately in need of a better class of Republicans.
