Who were the 75 Representatives and 7 Senators who refused to bow to FOX News?

When funding for ACORN was voted for in the House and Senate There were 75 Reps and 7 Sen who weren't buying that ACORN was a corrupt organization as reported on Fox News for months.

Who were these individuals who believed the whole thing was sham done just to discredit Obama and ACORN?

Update:

*LOL* I was being factious.

I haven't found out who the Reps were. But both of Illinois Senators voted to keep funding for ACORN. I wonder why. Not really.

There were also 8 no votes. 6 Republicans and 2 Democrats. I wonder why they didn't vote.

    Why would ACORN fire those workers over a sham?

    Come on, these are your tax dollars funding an organization that has multiple employees that have been caught helping others evade taxes, get away with prostitution, and import illegal immigrants. How can you not be outraged? This wasn't one incident, so far it's been five. Does the fact that they are indicted in multiple states across the country for voter fraud not mean anything to you? Those journalist didn't work for FOX News. This has nothing to do with bowing down to the news agency that reported it. If you are not outraged about this whole mess, you have more problems to be worrying about than Fox News. And who said anything about Obama? As far as I've heard, he is completely denouncing them. We don't need 7 senators and 75 represenatives to discredit ACORN, they've done a find job doing that themselves.

    Yeah I don't know but you could google COMMUNISTS IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE and that might get you a little closer. Seriously, ACORN was about to be in charge of conducting the census and I'm not sure that that has changed. Does anybody really think they would have done it properly. They are a fraud and if they get their hands on the census, noting how they ripped through the U.S. tax codes, they will destroy any government credibility.

    Well, the socialists/Marxists are at it again. fox tells the truth, unlike your choices who do not cover a story until the 11th hour because it is detrimental to far left liberal/socialist regime in power.

    BTW, the congressmen fear for their jobs by the voters. They ARE supposed to represent their people, not the lapdog liberal media.

    I thought Liberals said that Fox News is irrelevant and had no bearing on anything. Did I miss where that changed?
