Resolution to Honor ACORN Sting Video Stalls Out

At the beginning of the month, with very little fanfare, Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas), a freshman member who holds Tom DeLay’s old seat, introduced H. Res 809 to honor James O’Keefe III and Hannah Giles, the young conservatives who filmed the ACORN sting that grabbed headlines last month.

So far, the resolution is lacking support. Only two other members, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) and Rep. Henry Brown (R-S.C.), have co-sponsored it. And yesterday Olson said, dryly, that he didn’t expect Democrats to let it come to the floor. Nevertheless, here is the resolution:

111th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. RES. 809

Honoring the fact-finding reporting done by Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III in their investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN).

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

October 7, 2009

Mr. OLSON submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

RESOLUTION

Honoring the fact-finding reporting done by Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III in their investigation in the fraudulent and illegal practices and misuse of taxpayer dollars by the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN).

Whereas Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III filmed investigatory videos uncovering the fraudulent and illegal practices of the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN);

Whereas the House of Representatives voted to completely defund ACORN on September 17, 2009;

Whereas these videos resulted in the potential annual savings of millions of taxpayer dollars to organizations that contract with ACORN;

Whereas Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III have displayed exemplary actions as government watchdogs and young journalists uncovering wasteful government spending; and

Whereas Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III are owed a debt of gratitude by the people of the United States: Now, therefore, be it

  • Resolved,* That the House of Representatives–

(1) honors Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III for their work as investigative journalists;

(2) commends Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III for bringing to light the fraudulent behavior of the Association of Community Organization for Reform Now (ACORN) and helping save millions of taxpayer dollars that otherwise would have funded ACORN; and

(3) respectfully requests the Clerk of the House to transmit an enrolled copy of this resolution to Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe III.
