Moran Goes After ACORN

First District Kansas Congressman Jerry Moran says his mission is to stop taxpayer dollars from being given to a group called the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now or better known as ACORN.

Congressman Moran has requested President Obama cut funding to ACORN, urged the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to investigate ACORN activities and has sponsored legislation to prohibit government funding.

Moran says he refuses to let taxpayers’ dollars fund an ethically problematic organization whose activities are compromised.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
