Only when recent videos taken at multiple ACORN offices across the country revealed their willingness to help a "pimp and prostitute" evade the law and set up a brothel - for underage sex slaves no less - did Congress take action. One would hope such action would be unanimous, but sadly 75 Congressmen voted to maintain ACORN funding.
I'm certain that ACORN does some good. So does cancer - after all, it brings families together, makes you reevaluate your priorities, encourages biomedical research etc. But who would argue that the good resulting from cancer outweighs the damage done? If a researcher were to ignore a cure for cancer because they wanted their grant money to keep coming, wouldn't that researcher be considered corrupt and evil?
So what do we make of Congressmen who voted to continue funding ACORN in spite of compelling evidence of widespread corruption? Here are their names:
By the way, Barney Frank, D-Mass courageously declined to vote.
If any of these clowns are YOUR representatives, you might want to give their office a call and thank them.
