It was only a week ago SEIU members lamented that conservatives learned the rules so fast. Indeed. Jim Geraghty over at “The Campaign Spot” has a partial transcript.
Big Government’s James O’Keefe, doing the work 60 Minutes just won’t do anymore, is now back with Part 4 … and this involves a California ACORN office, murder and prostitution. Watch it all.
UPDATE: If you are not already aware … the Senate voted yesterday to cut off all federal housing money rom ACORN … but the Republicans want more … and they should.
House Minority Leader John Boehner introduced legislation Tuesday that would break all federal government ties with ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. House Republicans also wrote a letter to President Obama asking him to use his authority to end all federal funding for ACORN.
The call for a congressional probe came from Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., ranking Republican on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. Shelby made the request in a letter to committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-Conn.
Let’s hope Senator Dodd gets this right.
Update 2: Oh man … this from the Wall Street Journal On-Line.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters Tuesday that the behavior shown on the videotapes was “despicable,” but that it isn’t clear whether problems at Acorn are isolated. If such behavior is widespread, Hoyer said, “I think we need to look very carefully at the assistance that we give.”
Well if four cases doesn’t convince the Democrat my guess is Tape 5, 6, 7, 8 …. won’t either.
