In 1992, Barack Obama led Project Vote, a masive voter registration drive in Chicago...

1.) From Obama's website:
"I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work."
SOCIAL POLICY (journal) Toni Foulkes, Chicago ACORN leader, and member of ACORN's National Association Board Pages 49-52 Winter 2003-Spring 2004 issue, vol. 34, No.2 Vol. 34, No. 3
"... Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992... Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5000 of them).
Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus, it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for State Senate and then his failed bid for U.S. Congress... By the time he ran for U.S. Senate, we were old friends. "
Obama himself admits that he led Project VOTE, and that ACORN was “smack dab in the middle of it.”
Obama also admits that he has been fighting alongside ACORN his entire career.
But, Obama now says that he is in no way, shape, form or fashion linked to ACORN.
somebody needs to save that before they remember it and pull it down
COMMUNIST PUNK THUG!!!!!
Have you seen this one yet?
Let’s all watch the lying sack of sh!t get out from under this one.
Be sure to not only link to Obamas bragging on working in coordination with ACORN on his own site...But ALSO the fact he then says on FIGHT THE SMEARS,,,his truth and fact charade...The he had NOTHING to do with them.
If fight the smears is a lying on this issue, how can you trust anything it, or he says?
Barack Obama Never Organized with ACORN
Discredited Republican voter-suppression guru Ken Blackwell is attacking Barack Obama with naked lies about his supposed connection to ACORN.
Fact: Barack was never an ACORN community organizer.
Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.
Fact: ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992.
In his capacity as an attorney, Barack represented ACORN in a successful lawsuit alongside the U.S. Department of Justice against the state of Illinois to force state compliance with a federal voting access law. For his work helping enforce the law, called Motor Voter, Barack received the IVI-IPO Legal Eagle Award in 1995. (For more about Baracks career, check out our Obama bio.)
Ken Blackwell is best known today for disenfranchising Democratic voters in his dual role as Ohio Secretary of State and chair of George Bushs Ohio campaign in 2004. To see him shed crocodile tears for the integrity of the vote while making accusations about Barack and ACORN with absolutely no basis in fact is disturbing.
Blackwells attacks against ACORN and community organizers continue a vile Republican pattern of mockery and viciousness against this noble profession. Community organizers are the very individuals Republicans should be celebrating for helping people to help themselves rather than depending on the government.
At FightTheSmears (at Obama’s website) Obama himself says “I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire life...”
Here he also says that in connection with Project VOTE, that ACORN was “smack dab in the middle of it.”
Barack Obama: LIAR.
yeah, saw that
But, is he lying about being in ACORN, or lying about not being associated with them, or is Comrade Zero just a plain lying two-faced politician.
Using a website promoted as a place to get facts about smears to OUTRIGHT LIE?
Push this everywhere you can. If this lie is on there, Everything else he says is questionable.
Seems to me that he formulated the actions...and taught them to ACORN......
