I wonder how many “votes” they promised for that 800 grand.

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.

FEC spokeswoman Mary Brandenberger said it is not unusual for campaigns to amend reports, even regarding large sums of money.

But, said Blair Latoff, spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee: "Barack Obama's failure to accurately report his campaign's financial records is an incredibly suspicious situation that appears to be an attempt to hide his campaign's interaction with a left-wing organization previously convicted of voter fraud. For a candidate who claims to be practicing 'new' politics, his FEC reports look an awful lot like the 'old-style' Chicago politics of yesterday."

In response to the RNC's position, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said in an e-mail: "The RNC can concoct all of the outlandish conspiracy theories they want, but when we saw that our FEC report didn't accurately reflect the field work CSI was hired to perform we corrected it. It's pretty bold for the RNC to attack us for a clerical error after John McCain's campaign was just forced to return $50,000 raised by a foreign national through a number of contributors who weren't even supporting McCain."

Melanie Sloan, executive director of the liberal-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said the campaign's error on FEC documents doesn't seem extraordinary, especially considering the huge amounts of money being spent.

"It's rare that people don't file any amended reports. If he has a pattern of lots and lots of amended reports, that would be more noteworthy than an occasional one," Sloan said.

Jim Terry, spokesman for a group that tracks ACORN, said Citizens Services Inc.'s involvement in the Obama campaign raises bigger questions.

"All of this just seems like an awful lot of money and time spent on political campaigning for an organization that purports to exist to help low-income consumers," said Terry, chief public advocate for Consumers Rights League, a Washington, D.C., advocacy outfit with a libertarian outlook.

How many times have I looked at a big story regarding Obama and thought to myself - Aha! Now THIS will be the end of him!

But to no avail.

But here I go again - always an optimist!

I don’t know HOW Obama can wriggle out of this one.

This stinks to high heaven and gets right to the heart of the validity of our elections.

Pretty soon we’re all going to demand purple ink for our fingers at the polling sites.

Rounding error...actually...

If you bribe each wino or crackhead $20 per vote, that is a nice voter turnout.

FReep the McCain campaign.
Light a fire under McCain before he goes to sleep.

McCain is losing this campaign because he refuses to fight Obama and his lies, and dirty tactics such as ACORN voter fraud. He’s just been rolling over (or bending over, I should say) and accepting the abuse heaped upon him- and expecially Sarah Palin.
The anemic attempts by the McCain camp to fight back within the last few days just ain’t gonna get it.

He should have been hitting Obama back hard months ago.
He needs to get out there every day and FIGHT BACK.

Email Republican headquarters/McCain. FReep ‘EM OUT!
REMIND McCAIN THAT HE HAS AN OBLIGATION AS OUR CANDIDATE TO FIGHT BACK!
To h*ll with bipartisian BS!
To h*ll with PC!
To h*ll with ‘conducting a respectful campaign’as McCain has said, and vowed to do.

RESPECTFUL CAMPAIGNING WENT STRAIGHT OUT THE WINDOW WITH OBAMA’S NASTY, BRUTAL COMMENTS SUCH AS;
‘lipstick on a pig’ and ‘You can wrap AN OLD FISH in a piece of paper called change. It’s still going to stink after eight years.’

Take off the gloves, McCain!

Hit the Marxist/Muslim hard with Ayers, Acorn, Violation of Logan Act, abortion, 2nd admendment, Campaigning for Odinga!!

Get off the d*mned economy issue. State that Obama/Democrats/ACORN caused this meltdown. State McCain offered a proposal to avert the meltdown and GET OFF IT.
Obama is counting on keeping this going to take the spotlight off his sordid past and dirty dealings!
NOTHING is more important than waking America up to this Marxist/Muslim!! DO IT. EXPOSE HIM!

I think the focus on this needs to be not so much on the "clerical error" -- easily explained away -- but on the fact that he paid that much to a corrupt organization that is involved in voter fraud all across the country.

Somthing like this from McCain might be nice: "Americans all across the country are enraged right now by the blatant voter fraud apparently being carried out under their noses by this ACORN group that you are so cozy with. So why did you pay them $800,000? $800,000!!! Almost a million dollars to a corrupt organization now being investigated in dozens of states? What did you get for that money, Barack? The American people demand to know."

This paragraph sticks out like a sore thumb.
A Trib analysis of campaign finance reports showed Obama paid CSI for services that stood out as unusual. For example, CSI received payments of $63,000 and $75,000 for advance work. Excluding the large payments to CSI, the average amount the Obama campaign spent with other organizations was $558.82 per check on more than 1,200 entries classified as advance work.

Well let’s see 800,000 here and another state perhaps 500,000 there and then add another 15 or 20 states just like this incident.

Obama is dirty. Taking illegal money from foreign sources and the playing games with Acorn.

When will Americans wake up. Obama will do anything to steal this election and the democrats are the same way. This is beginning to be class warfare.

Where is America headed?

So, Andrew Cuomo, Mafiosi Housing Secretary under X-42, The Cigarman, was bragging about how his goons put the squeeze on a bank in Texas and forced it to pay $2 billion after the Feds sued them for not making loans to lousy credit risks. Unfrickin' believable! And, after 8 years of GW Bush, these guys get away with it?!

yes - good point, and I can assume it is safe to point out that 100% of these “votes” were going to Obama.

This all makes me chuckle when I think of how Bush was accused of “stealing” 2000 just because he kept winning the recounts.

More specifically, Obama paid $800,000 to an ACORN organization to register people to vote in Ohio earlier this year. That work, and other voter registration work performed by ACORN, has apparently resulted in illegal voter registration forms bring submitted in a number of States this year.

Ohio has been stung by illegal voter registrations that have resulted in a federal judge issuing a Temporary Restraining Order against Secretary of State Brunner, who is a Democrat, forcing her to follow the law with regard to allowing local elections boards in the State to examine those voter registration cards. ACORN officials regularly advise Secretary Brunner on matters of voting strategy.

Before the judge’s order, she was breaking the law to keep the illegal registration from being examined by those local officials.

IIRC, the website that discovered the false FEC reports by Team Obama published the information, and shortly after that, Obama decided to amend their FEC report.

I’ve been looking for that website this morning to confirm that, but so far I’m coming up empty.

Anybody remember that, or am I misremembering?

Five Million Illegal Aliens get Fraudulent Loans

Here’s what a google link yields:

headline: Calling the Old Media: Five Million Illegals Have Illegal Mortgages in U.S.A.!

Here are some snippets:

” ... One illegal alien was arrested this year in Tucson after allegedly using a stolen

social security number to buy two homes and rack up over $780,000 in bad debt. ...”

” ... It’s not known how many of those have contributed to the subprime housing mortgage

meltdown, but it has affected every state, including Arizona. ...”

Oldexpat posted: Whether it is 1m or 5m is irrelevant. No bank should have been giving

mortgages to someone who could be deported any day. Makes no sense. All I know is we have

a friend foreclosing on almost one house a day in Orange Co. CA.

This is sick. I shake my head with amazement as I read all the lying excuses Barack supporters invent.

They will say anything....anything....to tamp down the public’s sense of outrage at the ANTI-voter things they have done.

They’ve learned well from Saul Alinsky and his disciple, Barack Obama.

$800,000 is a clerical error.

I doubt they have an $800,000 "error" that works against them... Maybe it's the same group that tells thim they "cleaned" the plane...
