Treat Felon Corporations Like ACORN


Congresswoman Betty McCollum is proposing that Congress treat corporations convicted of a felony the same way it treated ACORN. Her bill says corporations convicted of a felony would not be eligible for government contracts for 5 years, could not make campaign contributions for 5 years and would be limited in the amount of lobbying they could do.

 

Rep. McCollum talks about her bill with The UpTake’s Mike McIntee and notes that there were already 345 votes in Congress for defunding an organization that hadn’t even been convicted of anything yet.
