Update on ACORN 09/14/09

Link to Reuters story.

ACORN’s federal funding….stopped In a Senate vote 83 – 7 .  The Not-So-Magnificent 7 are:

  • Dick Durbin (D-IL)
  • Roland Burris (D-IL)
  • Robert Casey (D-PA)
  • Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
  • Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
  • Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
  • We need some new DNA in VT, RI, NY, IL and PA.  Vote these enablers out!

    ACORN’s reply?    “Fortunately, ACORN derives most of its income from its members and other supporters, so the decision will have little impact on overall operations.”

    We shall see as the fallout continues.
