Barak Obama has tried hard to distance himself from ACORN, but there’s no getting away from the reality of his intimate associations with the community organizing group.
He has been recorded bragging about his work for and with ACORN. He was on the board of directors for Chicago Woods Funds, a major contributor to ACORN, with Bill Ayers, a noted terrorist. And Obama’s current campaign gave $800,000 to ACORN for a get-out-the-vote project.
Obama: “I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.”
That kind of campaigning reeks of corruption. You give a big wad of cash to a group so they can go out and get people to vote, and you expect me to believe that you aren’t paying for those votes? Non-partisan, my elbow! One branch of ACORN or another has been in the news for voter fraud nearly every year of this century, and it’s always fraud that would favor the Democrat. How is that non-partisan?!
ACORN should be disbanded, it’s leadership rounded up and thrown in jail, and legislation MUST be passed to prevent these groups from ever existing again. If you want a community organization, great. Go to it. But voting is a personal, private, non-community type of thing. Voter privacy shouldn’t be messed with. I even have difficulty justifying campaign volunteers giving poor or older voters rides to the polling stations. It just doesn’t sit right.
By the way, the election is only three weeks away. Obama must NOT win. His politics are bad for any country, and especially antithetical to what America is. Get registered, and go vote!
