    Here’s a reminder of why McCain is such a flakeout on ACORN: REMEMBER?

    "McCain is up to his hips in all sorts of dirty liberal causes.
    Lets dump the RINO !"

    Sigh: McCain and his friends at…ACORN

    If you want to know why see-sawing John McCain has had to be goaded, prodded, begged, and dragged into spotlighting Barack Obama’s radical ACORN roots, here’s your answer:

    Turns out John McCain had no problem calling ACORN members his friends during his ill-fated illegal alien shamnesty crusade.

    Ugh.

    Here’s a February 2006 press release trumpeting McCain’s appearance at a pro-shamnesty rally organized by a coalition led by ACORN. As the release notes, he made a second appearance for the group in NYC. Read it and gag:
    .......................................
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Major Rally in Miami to Support Comprehensive Immigration Reform

    Senator John McCain and many others to speak at the rally at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus

    Miami, Florida – February 20, 2006 ― Leaders from a diverse array of sectors will hold a rally in Miami on Thursday, February 23, 2006, in support of comprehensive immigration reform in an effort to keep immigration reform at the forefront of the public debate. Leaders from both political parties, immigrant communities, labor, business, and religious organizations will gather to call on Washington to enact workable reform.

    The rally will feature Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) as the headline speaker along with elected officials, immigrants and key local and national leaders. Sen. McCain is one of the chief sponsors of the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act; bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform legislation introduced last Congress and scheduled for consideration by the Senate in the coming weeks. A similar rally with Sen. McCain is planned for New York City on February 27.

    WHO: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL), Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL.), and immigrant, religious, community, business and labor leaders.

    WHAT: Comprehensive Immigration Reform Rally

    WHEN: Thursday, February 23, at 6:00 p.m.

    WHERE: Miami Dade College – Wolfson Campus

    snip

    The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act was introduced in the Senate by Senators Edward Kennedy (D-MA) and John McCain (R-AZ) and in the House by Representatives Jim Kolbe (R-AZ), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Luis Gutierrez (D-IL). It addresses border security and illegal immigration while bringing the 11 million undocumented immigrants out from the shadows and onto a path to legal permanent status; setting up legal channels and realistic caps for workers and family members to enter in the future; providing for tough enforcement; and enabling more immigrants to learn English and prepare for citizenship.

    The rally in Miami is being sponsored by the New American Opportunity campaign (NAOC) in partnership with ACORN, Catholic Legal Services – Archdiocese of Miami, Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, Florida Immigrant Coalition, Miami Dade College, People for the American Way/Mi Familia Vota en Acción, Service Employees International Union, and UNITE HERE.

    ACORN is now gleefully reminding McCain of his common cause with the group to paint itself as bipartisan — while at the same time issuing the usual strident, anti-conservative statements that ought to be immediate grounds for revoking its non-profit tax status.

    “I’ll rely on people to judge me by the company that I keep,” McCain said in February.

    That’s not working out so well now, is it?

    Maybe it had something to do with McCain being in South Carolina today with Graham? Notice how neither of them voted?

    Update: Several readers note that McCain and Graham were at a town hall event in S.C. at the Citadel earlier today. Still doesn’t excuse McCain’s alliance with ACORN on open borders. Also, the town hall was at 9am. Not clear whether they were already back in D.C. or not by the time the amendment hit the Senate floor after 5pm Eastern earlier this evening.
