    I have no idea. In any case it doesn't eliminate the possibility of the audio being illegally captured.

    Oh...and no "civic" organization that is taking MY tax dollars has a right to any privacy. Their books should be a matter of public record.

    Bad choice of words on my part. I was simply saying that any ACORN employee caught up in this is being swiftly tossed overboard like a proverbial Jonah.

    Senate votes to block ACORN housing funds


    "WASHINGTON - The Senate voted Monday to block the Department of Housing and Urban Development from giving grants to ACORN, a community organization under fire most recently after workers in Baltimore were videotaped giving advice on evading tax laws to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    The 83-7 vote would deny housing and community grant funding to ACORN, which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now."


    Despite the coverfire from John Conyers they still lost some funding.

    I heard they are out of the census as well but not confirmed.
    Thank you

    The AP article also said this would have little impact on ACORN as the majority of their funds come from donations, not government grants.

    Pimps feel the need to give back, I'm guessing.

    When are those democrats ever going to learn. I'm glad we have a Republican majority in the Senate or this type of measure would never get passed...
    Should have been smart enough not to give it to ACORN in the first place.

    They were eligible to receive billions from the government.
