    The way I parse the defunding statement, it refers to fraud involving elections, not other types of fraud, and as such, the link in #1 does not show a top-100 of what it purports to show.

    However, it refers to mere indictment, rather than conviction/outcome of said indictments.

    I think that congress in general has now shot itself in the foot on this one.

    Passing the Acorn Act means now the act will be scaled down and made non-specific. Which means it won’t pass this time around.

    But we’re not stupid. I want to hold their feet to the fire and make them vote this bill so that any corporation that screws the government gets their funding cut.
