Obama Campaign Paid $800,000.00 To ACORN Entity!

October 8, 2008

The Chicago Sun Times has an article on their site that carries this quote from McCain campaign spokesman, Ben Porritt, regarding the Obama campaign’s shady dealings with Citizens Services Inc., a subsidiary of ACORN.

“ACORN is one of the largest radical organizations in America that represents another questionable association of Barack Obama’s. Obama’s campaign has been endorsed by ACORN’s political action committee and their sister corporation received nearly $1 million from Obama’s campaign which they originally misrepresented on their FEC report. ACORN masquerades their efforts as good yet the endless examples of voter fraud and wrongdoing makes clear that their true mission is to poison the political process. ACORN’s efforts are reminiscent of the sleazy Chicago politics that Barack Obama embraces.”

I did some quick Googling and came up with this quote from the Obama campaign from an article that ran August 22, 2008 :

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now for services the Democrat’s campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. — a subsidiary of ACORN — worked in “get-out-the-vote” projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.

You might be forgiven for drawing the conclusion that the Obama campaign employed fraud, to fund fraud.

    Obama’s connection to ACORN needs to be publicized. It is thanks to ACORN’s underhanded activities to overthrow our government that our economy is in the presnt mess. The man (Obama) is a demagogue!!!

    I am saddened that we, as a nation, have to find ourselves in a position to even consider such a person for any office in our government.
