Democratic Illinois Senators Durbin and Burris both voted to stand behind ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) in a Senate vote to defund the criminal organization this week.
A measure placed in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations bill was overwhelmingly passed by the Senate to defund the group over the latest round of bad publicity of this nefarious organization.
On top of the last decade of constant convictions for vote fraud all across the country, ACORN offices have been caught in a tri-city “sting” of sorts where ACORN employees were helping to cover up what they understood to be a mortgage fraud and prostitution business by helping fudge IRS forms to disguise the activities. These ACORN employees even thought they were helping to cover up sex trafficking in underage, illegal aliens.
And we in Illinois can stand proud that our two Senators, Dick “Turban” Durbin — he of saying our troops are like Nazis — and Roland Burris — that accidental Senator appointed by our soon to be jailed ex-Governor — are standing behind this criminal enterprise. We are so lucky to have them.
Yes, Durbin and Burris are happy to stand by sexual slavery, tax cheating, mortgage fraud, and vote fraud. What a pair, eh?
The list of Senators that voted to shield the criminals are as follows:
- Roland Burris, D-Ill.
- Bob Casey, D-Pa.
- Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
- Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.
- Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
- Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
- Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.
