House passes amendment to cut government funding for ACORN
www.cnn.com...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The House of Representatives approved an amendment Thursday that calls for halting government funding to the community organizing group ACORN.

The videos have sparked controversy over ACORN, already under fire amid election fraud claims.

The measure, added to a larger bill on reforming student loans that won House approval, follows a provision passed earlier in the week by the Senate that would halt Housing and Urban Development grants to ACORN.

Both measures would have to have their differences reconciled in Congress to take effect.

ACORN's chief executive officer says that the group gets most of its money from members and other supporters and that its operations would continue even if it is cut off from government grants.

However, approval of the House and Senate measures demonstrated the political fallout against ACORN after the recent release of videos that appeared to show the agency's employees condoning illegal actions.


And there ya have it folks...the rug has been pulled on the "Slime-Balls"!!!

Seems someone might of been in mortal fear for their "Political Lives"...
