UPDATE!!! The House Voted – Who are the “75” That Support ACORN?

The House voted yesterday 345-75 to block further funding to ACORN. I wonder what kind of hidden agenda the “75” who voted against the block has with this corrupt organization. You may want to reconsider these individuals in the 2010 election. This bill and the Senate’s recent bill will need to merge and then the president signs off on it (that will be interesting since Obama is a big ACORN fan).

It will take several months for the whole process to be completed. In the meantime, tell your representatives and senators who voted for support with ACORN that they have lost their support with you!

    I finally received an email from Senator Burris (D-IL). I really don’t think he read this blog. Here is his response. Take it for whatever its worth:

    Dear Mr. Day:

    Thank you for contacting me about the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). I appreciate the benefit of your views.

    ACORN is the nation’s largest grassroots community organization that advocates for low income families for social justice and employs thousands of Americans. It has been instrumental in assuring that the voices of poor, minority, and underrepresented citizens are heard. ACORN has played a major role in advocating for improvements in urban education, neighborhood safety, job conditions, and other critical issues in the United States.

    While I fully support the fight for social justice and stronger communities, I also understand the concerns you have raised. I am troubled by the serious allegations against ACORN and believe we need to exercise stronger oversight and demand accountability, as with any private contractor. However, I believe it would be a mistake to jeopardize ACORN’s mission based on a few isolated incidents. As your Senator, I am committed to finding solutions to eliminate unnecessary spending in all organizations that serve our communities while requiring more transparency for the American people.

    I will continue to listen closely to what you and other Illinoisans have to say about matters before Congress, the concerns of our communities, and the issues facing Illinois and the nation. My job is not about merely supporting or opposing legislation; it is also about bridging the divide that has paralyzed our nation’s politics.


    Roland W. Burris
    United States Senator
