Obama’s Fraudulent ACORN Campaign

I have a friend who works for the United Way who told me this story over dinner tonight.

Apparently, the Obama campaign hired a few dozen people to canvas the Miami Valley to in the run up to the Ohio primary. To do this, they used a “company” called ACORN. This organization told these canvassers, “On March 11, show up at the United Way building in Dayton, and you’ll get paid.”

The problem?

ACORN wasn’t located there. Never was. No one had even heard of ACORN. Never been in the building.

My friend told me that the United Way was overrun throughout the day by people “looking for their checks”.

Imagine their surprise when it was revealed ACORN didn’t exist. It was just an empty office suite.

Is this “change”? Or is Obama just another slimy politician grasping for power?

    ACORN is a left wing group of community activists with offices nationwide. I’m not the most “in the know” person in the world but I’ve heard of them several times. The people at United Way need to get out more (or read more), especially if they’re supposed to be helping lower income individuals.
    Please read the following from the blog “Writes Like She Talks” about ACORN’s involvement with Obama. The search to find this information took me all of 30 seconds. “Libertarian Jason”, ever heard of “GOOGLE”? Maybe you and your United Way friend might want to put a little effort into learning how it works.

    “…Application info: Ohio ACORN GOTV effort for Obama is hiring canvassers now
    From the inbox:

    GOTV for Obama! Ohio ACORN is doing a Get Out The Vote project with the OBAMA Campaign. Ohio ACORN is hiring canvassers to go door to door encouraging voters to vote for Barak Obama.

    ACORN is hiring in Cleveland (216)431-3905 , Columbus (614)425-9491, Cincinnati (513)221-1737, for Dayton (call Cincinnati), and for Toledo call Cleveland. Or email polnatoh@acorn.org and your inquiry will be routed to the appropriate person in each of these cities. Intake and training will be held daily at local ACORN offices. Canvass begins on Wednesday Feb. 27th and will work through election day. Please, only persons wishing to work all or most of these days (Saturday and Sunday included) should inquire.

    Please do not contact the Obama campaign directly regarding this post as they are not the organization doing the hiring and it will only distract their staff and volunteers from the other important work they are doing on behalf of Senator Obama.

    Good luck.

    ARE THE POLLS TO BE BELIEVED ???
    I, like many Americans believe that character, honesty, and integrity really do go to the foundation of who the next president should be.Obama is ahead in the polls because Obama is dramatically outspending McCain with television advertising … he has a biased media in the tank, who provides him with more and better exposure, and editorial endorsement … Obama has 96% of the black vote … he enjoys the relentless support of a completely biased entertainment industry, plus the left wing educational community, plus massive illegal, or unethical fund raising, and voter registration drives, by groups like Acorn … not to mention the fact that thanks to democratic propaganda, McCain has to carry Bush’s weight. At this point in time, many Americans are also beginning to question the validity of the POLLS. Are they skewed, like the biased media? Do they truly reflect reality? Are the sample groups mostly black voters? If the Democrats are so sure they’ve already won, how come they keep trying so hard to make the rest of us believe it? Just like they did against Hillary! There is a good chance that if we can keep voter fraud out of this election, that on November 4th, the actual voters, in the privacy of their booths, will elect McCain/Palin, by a comfortable margin. If you vote for Obama, you are also voting for voter fraud and a crooked media.
    On November 4th cast your vote for McCain/Palin !!!

    Tompkins you idiot, ACORN hasn’t been involved in a single instance of voter fraud…EVER. Not even the dumbest RNC flak has made that claim. To be involved in voter fraud, fake voters have to actually vote. Some canvassers, and probably a few applicants thinking its funny, have filled out fradulent applications. Most of these applications are actually pointed out to election offices throughout the country, by ACORN itself.

    The media has made a big to-do about fake cards signed by the likes of Mickey Mouse, but do you really think that someone is going to actually vote as MICKEY MOUSE!? Fake registrations are worthless to everyone involved in the voting process. ACORN has been doing voter registration for several decades and there has never been one single case of voting fraud ever linked to the orginization. When you idiots find an actual case of VOTING fraud then you might have a case, but right now you’re quacking nonsense about an issue you obviously don’t understand at all.
