Senate Votes to Cut off ACORN Housing Funds

Via the drudgereport: "This afternoon the Senate voted 83 to 7 to accept the Johanns Amendment # 2355 to H.R. 3288, the THUD Appropriations Bill... Developing..."

SA 2355. Mr. JOHANNS submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill H.R. 3288, making appropriations for the Departments of Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, and related agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:
After section 414, insert the following:

Sec. 4__. None of the funds made available under this Act may be directly or indirectly distributed to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).

Score 1 for the people! As soon as we know who voted against this amendment and who abstained we will be sure to let you know so you can let them know your displeasure.
