Good News: House Votes To Defund ACORN Successor Groups

Bad news: It remains to be seen whether the measure will be taken up by the Senate.

Still, good news is good news, and Matthew Vadum brings the glad tidings at the American Spectator:

Last week the U.S. House of Representatives voted to block funding to any remaining ACORN affiliates and to “new” ACORN groups that have sprung up over the last year.

The ACORN network of 370-plus organizations is not actually dead, as I’ve written. It is merely restructuring itself. The lead corporate entity, ACORN, filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but the state chapters and other branches of the infamous activist network continue to operate. Other affiliates including vote manufacturers Project Vote and housing bubble generator ACORN Housing continue in business. ACORN Housing changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America.

ACORN insiders acknowledge a reconstituted ACORN will emerge in time to help the reelection campaign of President Obama, who used to work for ACORN.

Three Republicans voted against the measure; Robert Aderholt (R-Alabama), Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), and Paul Gosar (R-Arizona).

Vadum is the author of the new book Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers.

  2. Fortunately, these people aren’t too clever when it comes to naming.

    if (( includes “Affordable) || ( includes “Center”)) then set == “TRUE”;


  3. I have no doubt that the most partisan racist to ever hold the office of the presidency will have all of his little minions running around collecting signatures of anyone dumb enough to believe his load of crap, and that we, the people, will be paying for that with our taxes (not to mention with a ruined society.)

    I really hope he is thrown unceremoniously out of office next year, and that the Republicans will devote a full measure of time investigating and prosecuting these scoundrels, especially the attorney general.
