Remember ACORN? They were the group that President-elect Obama used to work with. During the presidential campaign their fraudulent voter registration drives were news almost every day. ACORN was famous for registering dead people, the same people in multiple counties, and even giving Mickey Mouse the right to vote.
The Democrats are rewarding ACORN for their fine Illegal work by throwing some cash their way in the Obama stimulus plan:
Looks like the infamous ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) that was caught up in voter fraud in 2008 will be in the running to get some funding (pages 72-73 of the report.) The bill provides for $10 million for the SHOP program. The funding will provide competively awarded grants to national and regional nonprofit housing organizations to develop or rehabilitate low-income housing.
There is plenty of more funding that will no doubt find its way to ACORN coffers like the $1 billion for Community Development Block Grants or the $4.1 billion for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Source Swine Line
ACORN is working hard for their money, this “non-partisan” organization is already campaigning for the stimulus:
For three weeks now ACORN members have been aggressively pursuing a campaign to pass a bold, progressive Economic Recovery package in the new Congress. Working closely with allies like US Action, AFSCME, and the larger Americans United for Change coalition, ACORN members are taking a major role in building the coalition to pass this recovery package, and to create the context for it to be both stronger and more directly responsive to the situation facing working families across this country.
Because of reality facing America’s low- and moderate-income communities, ACORN members and their neighborhoods function as the canaries in our nation’s economic coal mine. In many cases, our members are experiencing severe economic dislocation, but, despite their personal hardship, they are organizing for a progressive response to the worsening economic situation facing the entire United States.
Back on December 18, ACORN offices around the country helped launch the new Campaign for Jobs and Economic Recovery Now (CJERN). These 18 late-December events were all coalition events, featuring a cross-section of speakers from the community organization, human services, environmental, labor, and elected-official sectors – we were proud, for example, to be joined by the mayors of St. Louis and Oakland on the 18th.

Isn’t it great the way the Democrats works hand in hand with ACORN an organization that is doing its best to destroy the electoral process with bogus voting? WHERE IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? Why arent they speaking out?
