Obama Administration Moves to Shutdown Disclosure of Big Labor-ACORN Connections
biggovernment.com ^ | Sept. 24, 2009 | Don Loos

Posted on 09/24/2009 9:41:29 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Even before U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was sworn in, Big Labor insiders like AFL-CIO lawyer and Obama appointee Deborah Greenfield were busily dismantling useful union financial disclosures produced by former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao. It’s another Big Government – Big Labor partnership aimed at keeping individual workers, whom they claim to represent, in the dark.

Why the hurry? Perhaps Union Bosses wanted to prevent the Virginia GOP and inquisitive people like Patrick Semmens from visiting DOL’s UnionReports.gov website that clearly reveals the Big Labor-ACORN collusion. Semmens discovered that teachers’ union bosses gave about $500,000 to the same Brooklyn ACORN office exposed on BigGovernment.com. Both the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) awarded ACORN service contracts.

That’s right; union bosses gave teachers’ forced union dues to the same ACORN that appeared to have no problem facilitating child prostitution. No wonder Solis’ Big Labor friends want to shutdown financial disclosure!

In fact, UnionReports.gov provides detailed union financial reports and is a primary source for many union members, reporters, columnists, bloggers, and researchers. But, the days of disclosure are numbered. Big Labor has commanded Labor Secretary Solis to shut it all down.

Will Big Labor’s ties with ACORN be hidden again?

In 2003, some sunlight began to shine on union financial disclosure revealing payments to groups like ACORN.

Itemized ACORN payments were previously hidden somewhere in reports like the 2004 NEA LM-2 report below. A quick comparison of NEA financial disclosure reports appears below illustrating the value of the reformed 2008 report verses the 2004 pre-reform disclosure. (For the entire reports, please click the following links: 2004 and 2008 NEA LM-2 reports.)

ACORN: Tax cheat - Group faces huge IRS liens

ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday that her group "absolutely pays its taxes." Not true: The IRS and Louisiana's taxmen have imposed nearly $2 million in liens against ACORN for failing to fork over taxes at its New Orleans national headquarters.

You've got that right. This organization has been around for a long time and this country is Infested with this scum and our political whores in Washington can't shake this group because they would all be exposed for their corruption. The Rats in office and those that put them there have been bleeding this country. Blackmail it's called and to anytime these Rats want to cover up another crime they cry RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY. It's worked for Hitlary, the murder of Vince Foster. Give it a little time an the mad man, Soddom obozo Jr. will be crying Right Wing Conspiracy when all else fails.

Found this on DOL Site.
From 2008
Explains that Acorn and its proginy are actually community UNIONs.::

Examples of community organizing around labor market issues are proliferating. National organizations such as ACORN have partnered with local community groups to mount living wage campaigns across the country. Project QUEST in San Antonio, Texas, joined with the national Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) to establish a community training and employment center for low-income workers. In Long Island, the Workplace Project’s immigrant worker center passed a statewide unpaid wages law. The Baltimore organization BUILD has worked for the enactment of a series of city-wide labor market ordinances, including living wage, right-to-organize, and right of first refusal ordinances, as well as a “school counts” law that allows mothers moving off welfare to count education toward their work requirement. BUILD’s latest effort is to pass a $5 million endowment to create a Taft-Hartley plan, which includes a multi-employer health care plan for Head Start workers.

Why are community groups increasingly organizing workers? “First, they realize that no amount of public subsidy could compensate for the decline in work and wages,” said Fine. “Also, unions were not organizing in these communities. Finally, self-interest motivated inner-city churches with dwindling congregations and overtaxed social service infrastructures to engage in this new experimentalism.” Although these efforts are distinct and shaped by local concerns, they do share several characteristics in common:

Community unionism is place-based, nonsectoral, nonoccupational, and nonfirm/industry specific. “In many cases, one low-wage job in the service sector is similar to the next,” said Fine. “Communities of interest exist more around place, race, and ethnicity.” These groups operate largely outside of the labor movement and seek to organize workers in ways that cut across skill and firm boundaries.
Community unionism achieves more wins in the public policy arena and with employers in the public sector. Thus far, organizing has been geared more toward public policy fights than workplace organizing or representation. These groups are very successful in raising conditions across a local or regional labormarket through regu lation, as opposed to collective bargaining agreements with individual employers. But the reg- ulations are largely limited to the public sector or to work that is contracted by the public sector.
Community unions benefit from a freedom from bureaucracy, but also suffer from a lack of resources. Because these groups are firmly based in community efforts, they are free to experiment and can avoid the cumbersome formalities that accompany NLRB elections, since membership is looser than in traditional unions. However, dues collection is not always systematized, so they lack the resources and experiences of the labor movement.
Community unions challenge the definition of unionism itself. “Because they haven’t been conditioned by labor union structures or labor law, they consider themselves to be worker organizations or unions,” said Fine. “But their approach raises a question about what a union actually is.” These groups neither rely on majority elections nor perform collective bargaining. Finally, while they do represent minority unionism, they often have difficulty relating to labor unions because they are unwilling to subsume their efforts under an international rubric or to become part of a mainstream local or regional structure.

There is an escape route under that bus.

NObama is only making public statements that are false.

He will support ACORN to his dying breath.

The diseased roaches of SEIU and AFL-CIO cannot stand the sunlight, so their demigod must shut down the exposure because he and the democrat party are dependent upon the criminal behavior these filthy, anti-American roaches provide every election cycle and most in between months.

Don't forget that it was Hillary that did the pro bono legal work for the Radkes when ACORN originated in Little Rock.

When all is said and done 'ACORNgate' is going to make the Teapot Dome Scandal(1) look like a case of shoplifting.(2)

So much dirt is coming out now against ACORN that Eric Holder can't continue his cover up too much longer -- or HE'LL be in the slammer for Obstruction of Justice. (Oh Happy Days!)

(1) When I was in publik skuul in the 50's, 'Teapot Dome', was the biggest scandal in U.S. History.
(2) I discount 'Watergate-gate' (/s) as that was a coup d'état set in motion by that slimeball John Dean to cover for his Call-Girl wife.

Amazing what 2 people with a camera can do. They have hit the left harder than any Republican ever has before that I can remember. I guess Rush Limbaugh has done more damage over a long term but in such a short amount of time Giles and O’Keefe have walloped them.

Are we sure this is only about ‘hiding’ what already has taken place? These liberals have only shoveled out a very small percent of the stimulus they took earlier this year. And the UNIONs have paid to play and they are owed, so how is BamaKennedy and his crew going to repay the UNIONs?

Good point. Fits in with Ohaha's obsession with "redistributing wealth" to those he thnks are "worthy"...... b/c they got him into the WH.

It sure does seem like the kindling is being cut and dried for one big fire within liberalville over who get to pass out that stimulus for next year's election.

I hope Glenn Beck will get ahold of that tape with Holder berating America, saying, WRT race, "we are a nation of cowards."

Would impact nicely played against the ACORN dumbos facilitating child prostitution and tax evasion.

...........this looks like a conflagration within liberalville over who gets to pass out that stimulus for next year's election.....

Yeah, they're scared stiff of 2010. Anyhow, the looting has begun.

Ohaha hid $14.5 billion stimulus in the state of NJ. According to news reports, $14.5 billion stimulus has disappeared---no sign of it being used for the designated purposes heralded by Ohaha.

Interesting that both Ohaha and Biden (who O tapped to distribute the zillions) came to see the Nj governor.

BTW, this is just a coincidence (/snic)...........the Nj governor is a former G/S chieftain (and his relection is in BIG trouble).

I just hope the gov wrote down Ohaha and Biden's numbered offshore accounts correctly (/sarc).
