Shocker! Senate Overwhelmingly APPROVES De-Funding ACORN
by

I’m in shock — but in a good way.

Maybe the message that ACORN is a corrupt criminal organization is finally getting through to lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

I write that because Michelle Malkin is reporting that on a vote of 83 to 7 the U.S. Senate passed an amendment banning federal housing funds in the pending transportation and housing appropriations legislation from going to ACORN.

The amendment was offered by Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Nebraska).

It is unclear what kind of reception the legislation will receive in the House.
