Betty McCollum & Keith Ellison, D (ACORN)

From Anglicat:
This is actually a good news/bad news story. The good news is that Senators Klobuchar and Franken were among the Senate majority this week who voted to cut all federal funding for the corrupt ACORN organization. The bad news is that TWO Minnesota Representatives cast shameful votes AGAINST cutting off ACORN funding: Congressman Keith Ellison and Congresswoman Betty McCollum. Fortunately, 345 sane Representatives took the moral high ground and voted to stop the flow of federal dollars to ACORN.
No doubt Mr. Ellison and Ms. McCullom are merely circling the wagons to protect their gravy-train vote machine.

This isn't the first time that Ms. McCullom rode out on her pale horse to rescue her ideological soulmates:

As a matter of fact, it seems that Mr. Ellison has also been rubbing elbows with the likes of ACORN for quite some time, himself.

It seems that the nuts never do fall very far from the tree, do they?
