Posted on 03/30/2009 11:26:24 AM PDT by Nachum
A lawyer involved with legal action against Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) told a House Judiciary subcommittee on March 19 The New York Times had killed a story in October that would have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote and the Obama campaign because it would have been a a game changer

The List, ping
I’m shocked, SHOCKED! to find...
oh... crap... it’s just happening too much now.
A game changer? Well, we sure wouldn’t want integrity to get in the way of getting your candidate into office, now would we?
Well, I’m just SHOCKED!!!! /s
Yup. No one should be shocked or surprised by this story. No one.
Gay mafia sticking up for one of their own again. They are a tight-knit bunch.
Didn’t Greta spike the ‘wild limo ride in Gurnee’ for the same reason (would have been a game-changer)?
Thanks Nachum. It’s very convenient for the left to consider keeping them afloat with tax payer dollars, don’t ya think?
From the article:
During her testimony, Ms. Heidelbaugh said Ms. Moncrief had told her The New York Times articles stopped when she revealed that the Obama presidential campaign had sent its maxed-out donor list to ACORN’s Washington, D.C. office.
Ms. Moncrief told Ms. Heidelbaugh the campaign had asked her and her boss to “reach out to the maxed-out donors and solicit donations from them for Get Out the Vote efforts to be run by ACORN.”
Ms. Heidelbaugh then told the congressional panel:
“Upon learning this information and receiving the list of donors from the Obama campaign, Ms. Strom reported to Ms. Moncrief that her editors at The New York Times wanted her to kill the story because”, and I quote, “it was a game changer.”
>Well, we sure wouldnt want integrity to get in the way of getting your candidate into office, now would we?
Bah! Integrity is for those fools with VALUES! [/sarc][/cynic]
Too little, too late.
Big Media Corruption!
Convenient? You might say that. I have a few more choice words I would add. :)
Really ... slap on the wrist and they're back peddling socialism.
Let’s not forget that ACORN was one of the first to file suit against a bank in an effort to force them to give mortgages to people who couldn’t pay them back. Their attorney at the time was Barack Obama. He IS the problem!!!
This one will make your blood boil.
The New York Times sucks. This is waaaaaay beyond bias - it’s vote fraud.
check this one out
Pravda at it's worst was never more devious than the MSM...
Does anyone know the status of the billions ACORN was supposed to get in the Porkulis package?
Moncrief also testified that, in November 2007, she was given a massive database of Barack Obama donors who had already reached the maximum that they are allowed to give to the Democratic presidential nominee. Her task was to cull it for potential donors who, though prohibited from giving any more to Obama, could give to ACORN.
Moncrief said that she received the database from her supervisor and that the person insisted the Obama campaign had provided it.
Obama has said that ACORN has played no role in his presidential campaign.
Project Vote national spokesman Michael McDunnah denied that the list came from the Democratic nominee or his campaign, and tried to discredit Moncrief.
“This is a low-level administrative assistant who was fired for stealing,” he said.
Moncrief also testified about an effort she called “muscle for the money” in which ACORN would, for a price, organize protests against corporations on behalf of clients such as unions.
Ms. Moncrief is going to “commit suicide” real soon.
Alls Not Well at ACORN-Aligned Radical Union SEIU
Sure, we believe you...LIAR!
This is outrageous. ACORN has been given billions of taxpayer dollars to help expand their operations. Taxpayers SHOULD BE FURIOUS! Obama does not respect our election process!
Can you just imagine if this were Republicans? The media would talk about his and nothing else. There would be investigations. People would go to jail, etc. This should be one of the biggest political scandals ever, but the MSM will barely mention it.
No - really?
Thanks for this info ping. Obama and the democrats are a bunch of thugs, crooks and liars!
Sorry for the reposting...OOPS!
Say that really fast ten times, and you'll churn out the real meaning of the statement. A quart of Stoli will help.
Is this a great Kountry, or what ?
The MSM was in the tank for the future Uber Fuhrer? Who woulda thunk it?!
“Didnt Greta spike the wild limo ride in Gurnee for the same reason (would have been a game-changer)?”
Would you mind, please, telling me what you are talking about?
This surprises me.
I would have expected the NYT to investigate, find the truth, and report it. That’s their duty and their moral responsibility.
I have to go now and take my meds. The nurse is here.
and the slimes too
I think that’s why they spiked the John Edwards story.
Someone here(I can’t remember who)said it was to keep him in the race long enough to split the vote.
Game changer? Well, if they’re going to keep their 5013(c) status while all the time working to register Democrat voters and endorse/support Democrat cndidates, why the hell does THIS matter so much? They’ll just continue to lie and say that they had been encouraging participation in the political process, blah, blah, blah, (***insert additional plausible deniability here***) and meanwhile while there isn’t a judge in the country who will convict them of any crimes whatsoever.
Heather Heidelbaugh should have posted her story on FR instead of relying on the NY Times to tell the truth.
Vanity posts on Free Republic may not have as wide a distribution as the NY Times (yet) but most are more credible than NY Times front page articles.
When I said they, I meant MSM as a whole, not the NYT.
Die NY SLimes!! Investigate the Zero.
