Obama: Tied to ACORN

The McCain campaign has spent much time during this latest news cycle going after Obama’s ties to unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers.  There are many other dubious associations in Obama’s corrupt machine-politics Chicago past.  One of these which is which is equally as damning as Ayers, and even more relevant to the current debate going on in America:  his ties to ACORN. 

ACORN has been tied to voter fraud in numerous states this election cycle.  While rampant voter fraud is par for the course for Democrats, this election cycle seems to have more concrete examples than usual.  The Wall Street Journal today has an Op-Ed on ACORN, its purpose and stated mission, and Obama’s close ties to the organization. 

ACORN is an organizaiton that, among other things, supports the following:

  • A government-enforced “Living Wage”
  • “Affordable” Housing (a-la Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac)
  • “Tax Justice”
  • Union Causes
  • Environmental Causes
  • Anti-School Choice
  • Anti-Welfare Reform

In other words, it is a leftist radical group.  The worst part about it is that it is funded with taxpayer money!  It’s housing wing alone, which helps give loans to people who can’t afford it, received $16 million in the last decade.  And in gratitude for its Democrat liberal benefactors in Congress, ACORN spends large sums of money committing voter fraud and assisting Democrats in getting elected. 

Obama has had numerous ties to ACORN throughout his career as a community organizer.  He headed up “Project Vote” in 1992, a Democrat get-out-the-voter-fraud effort which included ACORN, he served as their lawyer for a case in 1995, a trainer for their new recruits, and has funneled large sums of money into the coffers of ACORN while the head of other organizations, including the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and the Chicago Woods Fund. 

The Obama campaign has attempted to distance him from ACORN, saying he never was a trainer for ACORN on his “fight the smears” website.  However, once that proved to be a lie, they changed the website to state that he was never hired as a trainer. 

The fraud of ACORN and the connections between ACORN and Obama need to be exposed for the American people.  There are some unconfirmed rumorson the blogosphere about a RICO investigation into ACORN by Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald (of Plame-gate fame).  Lending some credence to this, the Boston Herald is reporting that the FBI is investigating the group and the allegations of voter fraud.   In any case, the McCain campaign needs to keep pounding this message home: 

  • That ACORN is a corrupt voter fraud organization trying to dilute the votes of ordinary citizens
  • That Obama has ties to ACORN going back to the early 1990s
  • That ACORN was an advocate for loans in the sub-prime mess that we are in

Pounding this message home will resonate with voters, and give the McCain campaign a needed boost.
