House votes to cut off funding, but 75 stand by ACORN

You know they did this reluctantly. But with mid-term elections coming up, they had no choice.
The House of Representatives just voted overwhelmingly to de-fund ACORN, 345-75. The vote came on a Republican motion to recommit the educational loan bill. As a result, the anti-ACORN provision made it into the House-passed bill.

You can see the list of 75 who continue to support ACORN here.
