However, Obama and ACORN are hardly getting acknowledged by the mainstream media (except for, surprisingly, the New York Times). Talk radio has been talking about it for weeks, as well as Michelle Malkin, Investors Business Daily and on HotAir.com, and McCain finally blew the lid off of it today. I am quite certain that will be played over the weekend in the MSM as McCain "getting desperate" and "attacking" or "going negative".
Obama is closely tied to this radical group. This is just the "short list":
- Representing ACORN, Obama sued Citibank, forcing them to issue high risk loans.
- On behalf of ACORN, Obama sued the State of Illinois to force implementation of the "motor voter" laws
- Obama paid ACORN, which has endorsed him for president, $800,000 to register new voters, payments his campaign failed to accurately report. (They were disguised in his FEC disclosure as payments to a front group called Citizen Services Inc. for "advance work.")
According to Michael Steele (on Hannity & Colmes quoting Lt. Col Allen West), Barack Obama could not run for any other office in the United States, because he could not pass the security clearances required, due to his past associations. I am formally calling for Barack Obama to step down in his quest for the Presidency of the United States.
