Although most of them are starting to wake up in our government, ACORN will find some kind of loophole to fund their ongoing, out-of-control corruption.  Now if we can only get them to investigate ACORN.  The Roll Call Votes follow the story…

House Votes 345-75 to Ban Federal Grants to Acorn

Brody Mullins reports from Washington.

In the latest fallout from the Acorn flap, the House voted overwhelmingly this afternoon to ban the community organizing group from receiving any federal grants.

The House, voting 345-75, approved legislation that would ban Acorn from receiving federal grants. House Republican leaders forced a vote on the legislation by adding the funding ban to legislation dealing with student loans. But the vote indicates Acorn has lost support among a large number of Democrats.

The Senate approved a similar ban this week on an 83-7 vote after a conservative Web site, BigGovernment.com, posted hidden-camera videos of Acorn employees offering advice on evading taxes on a brothel business. The latest video from a San Diego Acorn office was released today.

Acorn, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, has been a top target of the GOP for years because Republicans believe the group uses federal grants to help low-income people register to vote, and some former Acorn employees have been charged with voter registration fraud. Acorn’s primary role is to help low-income Americans find housing, but the group also works to empower low-income Americans by helping them get involved in the political process by voting.

Earlier in the day, Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California declined to say whether the House would follow the Senate for legislation that would prevent Acorn from applying for federal housing grants.
