That’s One Small Step…

Senator Mike Johanns (R) of Nebraska late today introduced an amendment to HR 3288 that bans federal funds from going to ACORN in the current transportation and housing appropriations bill. This involves a possible tens of millions of dollars. The amendment was approved by a vote of 83-7 with both Illinois senators voting against the amendment or for ACORN continuing to receive funds. Over the weekend the Census Bureau dropped ACORN as part of it’s organization.

This could truly become a David and Goliath story if ACORN is eventially damaged. It is early and time will tell.
