Why is ACORN's chief organizer friendly with the Marxist anti-American governments of two South American countries?
Within ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis's storied rogues gallery of a rolodex may be found contact information for then-Bolivian ambassador Gustavo Guzman and for Sabine Kienzl, a professional propagandist employed by the Venezuelan embassy. The listing for Guzman contains what appears to have been a direct office telephone number.
An ACORN insider I spoke with confirmed the authenticity of the rolodex which I have seen. Erick Erickson of the website RedState recently did an excellent job unveiling the rolodex.
Both Bolivia and Venezuela are now headed by radical, anti-American leftists friendly to Communist Cuba -- and officials of those hostile nations somehow ended up as business associates of Bertha Lewis.
I don't have proof that Chavez is funneling money to ACORN but it is not outside the realm of possibility, especially given ACORN's well-established criminal propensities and convoluted finances.
The despot sends the equivalent of millions of dollars to the U.S. every year as part of his public diplomacy campaign aimed at getting the American public to warm up to his government. Venezuelan oil flows to Citizens Energy Corp., a nonprofit headed by former Rep. Joe Kennedy II (D-Mass.) that gives some of the home heating oil away and sells some at a discount to poor people.
Other radicals with ties to the Chavez regime, particularly the strongman's Hollywood friends, are listed in the rolodex.
There's chavista Danny Glover, the renowned "Lethal Weapon" actor. Glover, an outspoken radical left-winger, is so tight with Chavez that the Venezuelan government has given him money to make movies.
Other radicals appear in the Lewis rolodex.

My, Bertha Lewis is a busy woman. Front "man" for the Obama Administration with the world's socialists is a demanding profession.

Will NEVER watch a movie with Glover in it again ... Eff Hollywood.
