Nebraskans can be very proud of Senator Mike Johanns.
This past Monday he took to the Senate floor and thoughtfully articulated the reasons why the Senate should support his amendment to prevent taxpayer dollars in the transportation and housing appropriations bill from going to fund ACORN (Assoc. of Community Organizations for Reform Now).
Thankfully, the Johanns Amendment passed. Now, as a result of Sen. Johanns' leadership, a national movement to completely wean ACORN from taxpayer dollars has started.
Employees of ACORN have been convicted of various acts of voter fraud and other illegal actions.
ACORN activists have been present and active in Nebraska as well, reportedly taking an active role in helping Democrats in Omaha.
Now, without the benefit of our taxpayer dollars, perhaps they'll pack their bags and go home.
