McCain Blasts Obama For Lying About ACORN
Here is a photo of Obama guiding ACORN activists in 2004.
The Obama Camp was hoping this photo was buried forever in the internet archives:
ACORN members meet with Illinois Senate candidate Barack Obama in 2004.

One of Barack Obama’s first big “community organizer” jobs involved ACORN in 1992. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN this year for voter registration efforts.
And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama this year.
Yesterday, it was reported that the Obama Campaign was even providing ACORN with donor lists.
Today the McCain-Palin Campaign blasted Obama for his obvious lies about his association with scandal-plagued ACORN.
The McCain Campaign:
Today, McCain-Palin 2008 campaign manager Rick Davis released the following statement in response to the testimony given by a former employee of an ACORN affiliate in a Pennsylvania court of law:
“Today’s testimony by a former employee of an ACORN affiliate proves Barack Obama is guilty of lying to the American people about his relationship with ACORN. At the last presidential debate, in front of sixty million people, Barack Obama said his campaign was not involved’ with ACORN. We now know that Barack Obama’s campaign was working hand-in-glove with an organization reportedly under investigation by the F.B.I. and in more than a dozen states. In addition to funneling $832,000 to ACORN for get-out-the-vote efforts, the Obama campaign and ACORN have been sharing donor lists, encouraging maxed-out Obama donors to contribute to this unethical organization.”
It’s not like they don’t have enough evidence.
How Obama can claim that he is not linked to ACORN is the real joke.
