Shuster Statement on House Vote to Defund ACORN

Today, Congressman Bill Shuster joined 344 of his colleagues to pass a Republican Motion to Recommit that prohibits ACORN from receiving any federal funds, including federal grants or contracts.

“Today, House Republicans acted in unison to force Congress to stop taxpayer dollars from being used to support ACORN’s illicit activities.

With new revelations coming out about this corrupt organization every day, it is clear that the federal government should sever any remaining ties with ACORN. The Department of Justice should be called in to investigate the group and the Internal Revenue Service should move forward with a comprehensive audit of the organization.”
