Bail-out includes $ to Obama’s ACORN

UPDATE: Not only is ACORN on the “bailout list,” but so is La Raza (illegal immigration group) ….  Clarice Feldman has the details

see more comments/updates at Elderscapes.

Did democats actually propose giving ACORN a portion of the $700 million in the original bailout draft?   Yes.

The amount of taxpayer funds to be received by La Raza has not been identified at this time.

This effort is (even more underhanded than Reid attempting to attach no-drilling legislation to the bailout package) possibly the most unethical and dastardly attempt by democrats to fund an anti-government organization — which is currently embroiled in voter fraud cases throughout the nation.

Jonah Goldberg: “Whatever happens in the future, the politician I’ve come to detest in all of this the most is Harry Reid. Either he’s amazingly out of his depth, or he is a shamelessly dishonest politician. Exhorting John McCain to come to Washington and then denouncing McCain for following his advice is really irresponsible behavior given the stakes here.”

This money handout is obviously in response to ACORN’s lobbying efforts this week. They have been begging for it. (ht to Excuse Me For Kickin)

If this is accurate, and not a misspoken error, the Democrats have dropped a bomb on themselves. This is a big mistake for them, because up until this point in the campaign they have managed to avoid the ACORN connection with, “voter fraud, embezzlement, and misuses of taxpayer funds, ACORN’s pattern of fraud can no longer be dismissed as a series of ‘unfortunate events.’” They didn’t get the memo that there is an investigation going on, that looks ugly and smells ugly. For them to carve out this level of funding in this hastily cobbled together proposal is remarkable for showing that the Democrats exhibit enormous arrogance in thinking the public will not care, and secondly that they are totally unaware that there is a moral issue in inflating this bill unnecessarily at a time like this (or EVER!), never mind that it is going to an organization that has possible rampant corruption.

Perish the Thought has previously reported Obama’s association with ACORN:

— Father’s Socialist Dreams
— Foreign Policy: One World Order
— Illinois Senate Years
— U.S. Senate Days
— Hidden Agenda(s)
— Oblamanomics
— Obama’s Energy Plan(s)
— Issues & Topics
— Terrorism/Iraq
— Questionable Associates
— Obama’s “Communities”

SadimTouch continues:

…. Obama was an attorney for ACORN… (read here also)

Barack Obama was once the Attorney for ACORN. While Obama was Chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, the CAC provided funds for ACORN’s Voter Registration Activities. Obama provided training to ACORN workers who are frequently misrepresented as “Volunteers” – ACORN pays for its Voter Registration Activities. ACORN, which receives partial taxpayer funding, uses those funds to conduct solicitations for contributions to Political Campaigns. In Philadelphia alone ACORN has raised over $800,000 Dollars for Barack Obama’s Campaign.

  1. clarice Says:

    Actually that was the amount rumored last night when people heard Senator Graham and misheard what he said. ACORN stands to get a lot in the Dodd proposal but not 20% of the total–really 20% of any profit the govt receives. I regret if an earlier erroneous posting misled anyone.

  2. OT Hill Says:

    Thank you for clarification!!!

    I’ll notify the ‘over the hill’ oracles to make this correction!!!!

  3. acorn hater Says:

    A PIG FATTENED ON ACORNS >>>>>

    Why, oh why, are people and the MSM not talking about this sickening twist?

    THE ECONOMY IS IN A CRISIS AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE PORKING UP A RESCUE BILL WITH EARMARKS TO A-C-O-R-N (THE VOTER FRAUD OUTFIT).

    NO WONDER THE GOP IS HOLDING FIRM.

    (excerpt:)

    House Republicans refused to support the Henry Paulson/Chris Dodd compromise bailout plan yesterday afternoon, even after the New York Times reported that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson got down on one knee to beg Nancy Pelosi to compromise. One of the sticking points, as Senator Lindsey Graham explained later, wasn’t a lack of begging but a poison pill that would push 20% of all profits from the bailout into the Housing Trust Fund — a boondoggle that Democrats in Congress has used to fund political-action groups like ACORN and the National Council of La Raza.

    […] Bail-out includes 20% to ACORN — fraudulant voter registration group « Over-the-Hill Oracles […]
