US Senate Votes 83-7 to Strip HUD Funding for ACORN!!!
Update: List of 7 Senators Who STILL Support ACORN


According to Michelle Malkin, the US Senate has passed the Johanns Amendment #2355 to HR 3288 to strip ACORN of HUD Funding!!!


This is a Victory for our Constitutional Republic!



More from the Senate Republicans website:


Senator Johanns: (3:14 PM)

· Called up the Johanns Amendment #2355 to H.R. 3288.

· Spoke in favor of the Johanns Amendment #2355 to H.R. 3288.

o "Mr. President, the people of Nebraska sent me to Washington to protect them from waste and fraud and abuse, and they asked me to change the status quo. And I take that responsibility very seriously. That is why my amendment would prohibit one more penny, one more penny of taxpayer money from going to ACORN in the Transportation and Housing Appropriations bill...Until a full investigation is launched into ACORN, no taxpayer money should be used to fund its activities. A vote in favor of my amendment is a vote in favor of the taxpayer and a vote against the status quo."




I'll have the roll call and video up when it becomes available.

This action follows evidence of widespread corruption of ACORN that was first broken on Glenn Beck's radio program. Here are a couple of the videos of ACORN employees assisting what they believed was a future politician who was setting up a brothel for underage girls from Latin America:
