THERE IS A MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD INVESTIGATION currently happening in more than 20 states. The target in every case: ACORN. That's "the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now." Barack Obama has a long and close friendship with ACORN. And yes, that matters. ACORN was very influential with Congressional Democrats who encouraged the subprime loans mess that triggered the battering that the US economy is now struggling through. REFORM?!? Why is it that far Left organizations love benign words such as "reform," when their purpose is anything but? ACORN, corrupt and dirty, is not reformist, any more than the People's Democratic Republic of China is democratic or a true republic. ACORN is up to its collective neck in fraud and criminal activity. They've even admitted that the problem is so bad that they cannot control it. ACORN is a favored organization of the Democrat Party. Why? Simple: ACORN always backs Democrats, from discredited city council members such as Chicago's Joe Moore to president candidate Barack Obama. ACORN is the Cultural Gutter of Political Corruption. ACORN has been corrupt for many years. The Bench reported on it when ACORN helped Chicago's 49th Ward Alderman Moore steal his reelection in 2007. Michelle Malkin reported on it in July 2007 in a post titled "ACORN falls again: The worst case of voter-registration fraud in Washington state history." The "worst case" of voter fraud in history that Malkin wrote about over a year ago pales in comparison with what is coming out about ACORN's dishonest dealings even at this moment. The Mainstream Media, of course, is doing its best to keep this mess quiet. This mess, however, is too big now to hide, no matter how much the rag of a newspaper in Janesville, Wisconsin or the New York Times tries. Talk show host Jerry Agar of WLS 890 AM notes on his blog that ACORN is one of the roots of the current economic crisis in a post titled "Obama, Acorn and the Housing Bust." Agar notes that "For the majority of the media it is too easy to just brush the story aside by casually blaming deregulation, thus doing the public relations work the Obama campaign needs done." WHY THIS MATTERS: You may be thinking that the current economic woes are more important than ACORN. According to Stanley Kurtz, "[Prominent Chicago ACORN activist Madeline] Talbott continued her effort to, as she put it, drag banks "kicking and screaming" into high-risk loans. A September 1993 story in The Chicago Sun-Times presents her as the leader of an initiative in which five area financial institutions (including two of her former targets, now plainly cowed - Bell Federal Savings and Avondale Federal Savings) were "participating in a $55 million national pilot program with affordable-housing group ACORN to make mortgages for low- and moderate-income people with troubled credit histories." MORE about this at Weekly Standard... Obama once paid ACORN $800,000 to register voters. There's more. "Obama worked as executive director of ACORN's voter-registration arm, Project Vote, in 1992," reports Investors Business Daily. "Joined by two other community organizers on Chicago's South Side, Obama conducted the voter-registration drive that helped elect Carol Moseley-Braun to the Senate that year." Do your own research. Just do a Google search for "obama acorn ties."
