Senate votes to cut ACORN funding

Only now could I get around to this, but the Senate has voted to stop funding for ACORN. While I'm happy to know that, does the lower House have to vote on it as well? If so, this may not be over yet.

Update: Hot Air has a video of Michelle Malkin on FOX discussing ACORN's prostitution scandal, and the MSM's "protection racket".

Update 2: and now, the House has voted to stop funding for ACORN too (also via Michelle). About time.

Update 3: the governor of Louisiana has stopped local funding for ACORN as well (also via Michelle):
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal today cut off state funding for the community activist group ACORN.

Jindal has also blocked any state agency for entering into contracts with the organization.

The executive order also cuts off any future state funding of ACORN, on the heels of a series of embarrassing incidents for the organization.

The governor’s action follows a subpoena of documents from the group’s national headquarter office in New Orleans.

According to Jindal’s executive order, “ACORN’s actions make clear that financial involvement with ACORN is contrary to the public policy of the State of Louisiana and the best interests of its citizens.”
Congratulations to Jindal for doing the right thing.
