According to Hotair.com, the Senate has voted to cut off federal funding to the criminal enterprise, ACORN. This move comes after BigGovernment.com's explosive hidden-camera expose's into the fraudulent activities of the community organizing group that has been under investigation for years for voter registration fraud.
In 2008 Barack Obama donated $800,000 to ACORN, whose 400,000 members helped "get out the vote" in many urban areas using deceptive means such as registering dead people to vote.
Obama worked for the organization in the early 90s, and even helped train the members in community organizing tactics. The photo above of Obama training ACORN members was scrubbed from ACORN's website before the election.
After two videos hit the Internet last week, and one video released yesterday showing ACORN workers in Baltimore, NY and DC giving tax evasion advice to a woman posing as a prostitute, Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to strip ACORN of all federal funding last night. The Senate passed the amendment 83-7.
And not a moment too soon: another damning video is set to hit the Internet today. According to Fox Channel's Glenn Beck, this video will "blow your mind."
So far there's been no word from Obama, who as a Chicago attorney once represented this criminal organization in court. And together with Nancy Pelosi, Obama earmarked $8 BILLION in federal funding to ACORN after bringing the group in as a "partner" in the 2010 Census count.
On Friday, the Census bureau moved to cut ties with ACORN citing the organization's questionable history.
