What Took Them So Long?

The Senate has voted to withhold federal funds from ACORN, 83-7.

These are the seven:

  • Dick Durbin (D-IL)
  • Roland Burris (D-IL)
  • Robert Casey (D-PA)
  • Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
  • Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
  • Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
  • Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

If we had a halfway ethical Senate, this bill would have done this in the wake of the avalanche of voter fraud cases. Voter fraud allegations elicit a yawn, but the Senate finally steps in when ACORN workers get caught on tape helping a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute evade the law.

I bet P. J. O'Rourke's irony meter is going off.
