Show us the names

The House has just voted to 345-75, to cut off all federal funding to ACORN -- using a procedural trick to force a vote on an amendment.

The overwhelming majority of Democrats voted with all Republicans to ram through the measure, which follows the Senate's passage of an amendment barring HUD from funding the community group, which specializes in social services, housing preservation and foreclosure mitigation.

The "Defund ACORN Act," introduced by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) would bar the federal government from doing business with the group, citing several voter registration fraud investigations. But it would also go much farther, prohibiting "any organization that shares directors, employees, or independent contractors" with ACORN from receiving federal cash.

Now we need to see the names of those who voted for child prostitution, tax evasion, and false imprisonment.
