Public Funding for ACORN Will Continue

House Minority Leader John Boehner has a very small surprise for us: despite lopsided votes in favor of cutting off public funding to Comrade Obama’s outrageously corrupt enablers at ACORN in the aftermath of the O’Keefe/Giles videos, the Big Government fire hose will continue to blast a torrent of our money at these vermin. On Tuesday night,

Tom Latham (R-IA) offered an amendment during deliberations on the Democrats’ massive year-end appropriations bill to clarify the prohibition on federal funds going to ACORN or its subsidiaries. That amendment was shot down on a 5-9 party line vote as Republicans sided with taxpayers while Democrats stood with ACORN.

Rep. Latham’s amendment is necessary to prevent taxpayer money from going to ACORN because the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice has taken advantage of a legal loophole to allow ACORN to continue to receive federal funds — despite the passage of the House GOP’s Defund ACORN Act in the fall.

Democrats can’t let their ACORN storm troopers go unfunded no matter how awful it makes them look, because their votes on Porkulus, Cap & Tax, and healthcare nationalization will make them reliant on the industrial scale voter fraud that is ACORN’s specialty if they are to stand any chance of reelection.

We are quickly reaching the point where the charade that the statist looters running Washington represent the people they rob, suppress, and exploit can be dispensed with altogether.

Obama et al. will continue to rely on ACORN’s help at election time.
