House Blocks ACORN Funding

The ACORN has fallen from the tree: The House voted 345 to 75 to cut off all federal funding to ACORN, the community organization that has recently come under fire after a series of controversial videos exposed some of its employees giving career advice to a journalist posing as a pimp. The majority of Democrats joined Republicans in voting to defund the group. The Senate also voted to defund ACORN this week.
