    In 1995, Illinois Gov. Jim Edgar balked at implementing the federal motor voter law out of concern that letting people register via postcard and blocking the state from pruning voter rolls might invite vote fraud.

    A young lawyer, a community organizer himself, sued on behalf of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn) and won. The young lawyer was Barack Obama. Acorn later invited Obama to train its staff.

    When Obama served on the board of the Woods Fund for Chicago with Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers, the Woods Fund frequently gave Acorn grants to fund its agenda and voter registration activities.

    Acorn has been in the lead in opposing voter ID laws and other efforts to ensure ballot integrity. Acorn has been implicated in voter fraud and bogus registration schemes in Ohio and at least 13 other states. Acorn staffers will presumably be out registering voters again this year.

    Oh boy.....he sued banks for not loaning money to minorities ! Wonder if that had anything to do if they were "qualified" ?

    ACORN has a long, long history of voter fraud and scandal.
    Obama also worked against banks who denied mortgage loans to minorities:


    Obama represented Calvin Roberson in a 1994 lawsuit against Citibank, charging the bank systematically denied mortgages to African-American applicants and others from minority neighborhoods.

    "I don't recall him ever standing up and giving an impassioned speech -- it was a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff," said Fay Clayton, the lead lawyer on the case.

    AlanColmes was just defending ACORN as if they were the Boy Scouts. How stupid are Dems?
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    5. ok after reading a little more
    the republicans are saying the group, which advocates for low income housing, is involved in "voter fraud." how dare they register voters? we all know that "voter fraud" is a bullshit term that republicans use to keep the people from being able to circumvent their very real ELECTION fraud.

    so there you have it. it's politics as always.
    Sooooooooooooo,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I don't like rules and a level playing field so it's ok for me to cheat and Republicans are bad because they insist upon those pesky rules.
