    Senate Votes to Cut Off ACORN Housing Funding

    Senate Votes to Cut Off ACORN Housing Funding - Political News - FOXNews.com

    The Senate voted to cut off ACORN Housing funds following the release of three videotapes that show employees of the activist group advising a "pimp" and "prostitute" on how to break the law.

    The amendment, offered by Nebraska Republican Sen. Mike Johanns, passed in a vote of 83 to 7 and prohibits the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now from receiving funds from the current Transportation and Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill. It marks the third time this year Republicans tried to block the organization from federal funding.

    Jeeze it took them long enough now lets have a complete investigation into this Group

    How is it that this is not on every network instead of just Foxnews? How can CNN.com ignore this and still claim any credibility at all?
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    Because its not a adulterous republican or a gay republican or a democrat governor who cheated on his spouse was a brave man for coming out of the closet.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I'm still waiting for the video where they are sitting across from Obama getting advice. Think that will make CNN news?
