Senate Votes to Cut ACORN Funding

September 15, 2009

FOX News reports that the 83-7 vote would deny housing and community funding to ACORN.  ACORN is suffering from bad publicity after www.BigGovernment.com released several hidden-camera videos of conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute.  In the videos taken at ACORN offices in Baltimore, Washington DC, and Brooklyn, NY, ACORN employees give the couple advice on how to purchase a home (that the couple planned to  use as a brothel for young girls) and how to account for income from prostitution on tax forms.

On Monday, Bertha Lewis, ACORN’s chief organizer called the Senate vote a “rare and politically convenient step.”  She also noted that ACORN gets most of its funding from “its members and other organizations, so the decision will have little impact on overall operations.”
