In a bi-partisan fashion, the House of Representatives voted to defund ACORN. In the past couple of weeks, several undercover videos were released, exposing ACORN employees advising individuals on how to file fraudulent taxes, run prostitution rings and much more.
The US House today joined the Senate in voting to defund ACORN, the community advocacy group beset by allegations of voter registration fraud and videotapes apparently showing employees advising conservative activists posing as a prostitute and pimp how to break the law.
The measure, offered as part of a motion on a student loan bill, passed by a vote of 345-75, according to the office of House Republican leader John Boehner.
The Senate voted earlier this week to withdraw housing and urban development funding. Last week, the Census Bureau severed ties with ACORN, which on Wednesday said it is suspending accepting new clients during an investigation.
