<br> Statement On House Vote To Defund ACORN
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA) today issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted to cut all federal funding for ACORN:
ACORN has violated serious federal laws, and today the House voted to ensure that taxpayer dollars would no longer be used to fund this corrupt organization. All federal ties should be severed with ACORN, and the FBI should investigate its activity. This united Republican effort to defund ACORN was a victory for the rule of law and taxpayers across the country.
