Yep... I think it was ACORN, I have no idea why the boneheads aren't raising the red flag on this.
OBAMA-BACKER ACORN USES TAXPAYER MONEY FOR PHONY VOTE REGISTRATIONS - Some 20% of any "profit" from the rescue bill will go into a Housing Trust
Fund to be tapped by ACORN and its ilk.
Here is more information on the Democratic effort to slide money from the bailout bill into the hands of socialist activists such as ACORN, which has
a long history of working with Barack Obama, as well as a long history of involvement in voter registration fraud. Some 20% of any "profit" from the
rescue bill will go into a Housing Trust Fund to be tapped by ACORN and its ilk.
Who is ACORN and why should we care?
ACORN routinely commingles funds from its housing arm into political projects such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives. Money is
fungible. Any taxpayer money that ACORN gets for housing makes it easier for the group to put its other funds into voter drives.
"These are taxpayer funds, in an indirect method, being used to subsidize political activism," says Rep. Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican and
chairman of the conservative House Republican Study Committee. "I'm sure they're not going out and registering any Republicans."
Obama cut his community organizer teeth with ACORN. As a young lawyer he represented the group in a suit against the state of Illinois, which was
concerned that postcard registration and a new motor voter law might invite fraud. ACORN later invited Obama to train its staff in leadership
ACORN has a political arm that endorsed Barack Obama for president in February and has stepped up its registration efforts to help elect a future
benefactor. The Obama campaign admits to failing to report $800,000 in campaign payments to ACORN. They were disguised as payments to a front group
called "Citizen Services Inc." for "advance work."
Consumer Rights League official Jim Terry says: "ACORN has a long and sordid history of employing convoluted Enron-style accounting to illegally
use taxpayer funds for their own political gain. Now it looks like ACORN is using the same type of convoluted accounting scheme for Obama's political
A major part of ACORN's sordid history is vote fraud. ACORN has been implicated in voter fraud and bogus registration schemes in Missouri, Ohio
and at least 12 other states. Last July, ACORN settled the largest case of voter fraud in Washington state history, involving nearly 2,000 bogus voter
forms. In Ohio in 2004, ACORN submitted forms for the likes of Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and someone named Jive Turkey.
ACORN uses taxpayer money to elect people like Barack Obama who will work to get them more taxpayer money. Democrats are willing to rip off
taxpayers in a national crisis to make it happen.
