ACORN was the largest radical leftist group in America before controversy forced the discredited community organizing group to disband. This radical group worked closely with the Obama camp during the 2008 election but was not open about the relationship. The photo below was scrubbed from the ACORN website before the election:
One of Barack Obamas first big community organizer jobs involved ACORN in 1992. He worked along side ACORN before he became an elected official. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN in 2008 for voter registration efforts.
And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama in 2008.
In 2009 Obama promoted a top ACORN operative, Patrick Gaspard, whose organization was fined $775,000 for election violations, to a top post in the White House. Gaspard is helping shape domestic policy today.
Barack Obama was not honest about his relationship with ACORN during the 2008 election.
In 2009 Congress voted to defund ACORN and its affiliates. But that didn’t stop the Obama Administration from giving $560,000 to ACORN affiliates in 2010. Obama may not know economics. His foreign policy is a disaster. He makes a horrible leader. But, he knows community organizing.
The Obama Administration has given a former ACORN official nearly HALF A BILLION DOLLARS after leaving the corrupt far left group......

The article adds "supposedly" here at the close. There were numerous early stories that ACORN never did shut down, but merely changed its name to various other names.
I haven't seen any followup on that, but if true, it really needs to be investigated and broadcast, and congress needs to find some further way to shut down funding. Here we are in another election year, and presumably ACORN is still a major player in cheating at the polls.
...when you waste trillions,stealing several billion is easy
OMG!!!!!When is this INSANITY going to stop!!
