The Johanns Amendment # 2355 to H.R. 3288 passed by a margin of 83 to 7.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate voted Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN, a community organization under fire in several voter-registration fraud cases.The 83-7 vote would deny housing and community grant funding to ACORN, which stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

The action came as the group is suffering from bad publicity after a duo of conservative activists posing as a prostitute and her pimp released hidden-camera videos in which ACORN employees in Baltimore gave advice on house-buying and how to account on tax forms for the woman’s income. Two other videos, aired frequently on media outlets such as the Fox News Channel, depict similar situations in ACORN offices in Brooklyn and Washington, D.C.

    Hey Patsy- aren’t you dying laughing anymore???

    There is nothing to be happy about- this ACORN disgrace is a blight on all American taxpayers. And, it is just the tip of the iceberg.
