EDITOR OF REDSTATE

Can we cross reference votes to ACORN and the Contact List?

There were seventy-five votes in the House of Representatives against defunding ACORN. What if we put up a list of names and whether or not there are in-district ACORN offices. We get this:2/3 of the votes against defunding ACORN have ACORN offices in their districts.1/3 do not have offices in the districts.Congressman Delahunt has no ACORN office in his district, but has one so very close that we can consider him in the yes camp.Oh, and several of the Congressmen and a good number of congressional staff members are in Bertha Lewis’s contacts list. We’ll get to them later.See the chart below the fold.
