The story of the ACORN prostitution scandal is finally beginning to spread like wild fire even some of the Liberal Media has been covering the story, like the Washington Post and Politico. The White House has begun the process of throwing ACORN under the bus, the Senate has voted to cut off ACORN from receiving HUD funds and Republicans have asked for a the same action to take place in the House. Just about everyone in the world knows about the ACORN prostitution scandal, well…except for one person, the self-proclaimed most powerful woman in the world, Nancy Pelosi:
Pelosi: I’m clueless about cash cut-off
By GEOFF EARLE and DAPHNE RETTER, Post Correspondents
WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said yesterday she is clueless about an amendment to prohibit government funds for embattled ACORN, although it overwhelmingly passed the Senate Monday and the White House is calling for the group to be held accountable.
“I don’t even know what they passed,” Pelosi told The Post yesterday. “What did they do? They defunded it?”
The amendment to suspend housing grants was a stunning blow to the community-activist group — and came as some Democrats and the White House have been backing away from the group.
HUH? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday as she claimed ignorance of Senate action on an amendment (below) calling for the defunding of ACORN.
The vote was preceded by the release of videos by conservative activists posing as a pimp and prostitute soliciting — and receiving — tips from ACORN employees about how to shield income, avoid taxes and set up a brothel.
The issue now goes to a House-Senate conference committee for a spending bill. Its fate is up to Democratic leaders, particularly Pelosi, since the House passed no such provision.
Some fellow lawmakers were surprised that Pelosi wasn’t following the issue.
“I think that she’s not focused on the issue of corruption,” said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who has been hammering ACORN.
Speaker Pelosi is either lying or neither she nor her staff has read a newspaper over the past few days. Either way she is truly clueless, not only about ACORN, but about the anger and lack of gullibility of the American people.
