The De-Fund Acorn Act of 2009: Shame. Maybe even illegal.

Never mind defence contractors, look at who else should be defunded according to the act .
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.
