ACORN, Community Activism, and Lies

Barack Obama's Involvement with ACORN Unearthed, Missing Article Recovered | Cleveland Leader Interesting that some in the media - the mainstream media - are finally finally reporting on ACORN. ACORN is one of many groups that thought people with little or no ability to repay a mortgage, should be able to get a mortgage. Fannie and Freddie were of that mind as well.

The interesting thing is the Obama connection, which both the Obama Campaign and ACORN are trying to hide.
Let's take a look at a quote from a 2004 article - Case Study: Chicago- The Barack Obama Campaign - written by Toni Foulkes, a Chicago ACORN Leader, which was published in the journal Social Policy. Did we mention that Social Policy recently pulled this particular article from their website, while leaving links to all other articles up?
Obama taught classes for ACORN and was described as "an old friend."
As recently as March 2008, the Los Angeles Times also made reference to Barack Obama's involvement with ACORN:
"At the time, Talbot worked at the social action group ACORN and initially considered Obama a competitor. But she became so impressed with his work that she invited him to help train her staff." (LA Times, March 2, 2008)
Not that it will make any difference. Another Teflon candidate.
