The House has now joined the Senate in voting to cut off Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). The resolution was attached to a student loan bill and passed by a vote of 345-75.
Before you celebrate though, realize that this is only a portion of the federal funding that ACORN receives. I also assume that many other organizations that are under the direct control of those at ACORN also receive federal funding. All funding to all orgs attached to the control of ACORN should be cut off immediately.
And I agree with the sentiment below that the FBI should begin investigating the group. They should do so under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute.
congressional Republicans are calling for all federal funds to be cut off and for a Justice Department investigation.
"ACORN has violated serious federal laws, and today the House voted to ensure that taxpayer dollars would no longer be used to fund this corrupt organization. All federal ties should be severed with ACORN, and the FBI should investigate its activity," Representative Eric Cantor, the No. 2 House Republican said in a statement. "This united Republican effort to defund ACORN is a victory for the rule of law and taxpayers across the country."
La Raza is just as bad or worse. It has to be one of the most racists organizations in America and our government also gives them millions in grants! La Raza in English means "The Race".
