ACORN: Obama's "Crass Roots" Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- September 14
Lou Dobbs: New developments now -- the Senate has passed a measure tonight cutting off some federal funding to the left wing activist and advocacy group ACORN. That vote, 83-7, on an amendment that has been offered by Senator Mike Johanns, a Republican from Nebraska. The amendment now blocks ACORN from receiving millions of federal tax dollars through the transportation and housing legislation. It could, however, still receive money from other federal sources. [...]
The funding amendment comes as new accusations against ACORN continue to surface. ACORN staffers and a third office have been caught on tape apparently giving advice to a pair of undercover filmmakers who were posing as a pimp and a prostitute.
