Senate votes 83-7 to strip ACORN of Federal Funding

Or as MSNBC reported, "GA Congressman compares Obama to Hitler". Via Hot Air:

Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to the HUD and Transportation appropriation bill to strip ACORN of all federal funding. A week ago, Johanns wouldn’t have gotten the amendment to the floor. Today, however, after three straight days of’s video exposés of ACORN offices in Washington DC, New York City, and Baltimore offering assistance to pimping, tax evasion, and trafficking in underage Salvadorean girls, Johanns not only got his vote — but he got an impressive bipartisan showing. The Senate passed the Johanns amendment 83-7.

The nay votes:

Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Roland Burris (D-IL)
Robert Casey (D-PA)
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Well, it appears that there are at least seven selfish sleazebags that didn’t care that federal money was going to a corrupt organization. I mean, look at that list. Not very impressive accomplishments from any of them, with the possible exception of Leahy’s ability to get into Batman movies or Durbin's frequent appearances in that annoying "Cookie Jar" Weight Loss Commercial.

Your thoughts.
