25 Republicans who voted to defund government contractor ACORN opposed contractor reform in 2006 when Democrats attempted simply to eliminate fraud and to open up the contractor selection process to companies beyond the defrauding hooligans at Halliburton. One of those GOP Senators is Lamar Alexander. An accomplice in 2006, Tennessee's senior Senator is obviously 2008's high horse; although given the relatively minuscule cost of the ACORN contract, the horse is an easy ride. The shallow GOP base are suckers for cheap righteousness.
