Oops!… Obama Camp Caught Scrubbing Its "Fight the Smears" Webpage on ACORN

The Obama Campaign privately updated its “Fight the Smears” webpage this week after it was discovered that they had not been telling the truth about Barack Obama’s extensive ties to the radical ACORN organization.

Here is a screen grab from the Obama website on Thursday:

The Obama Campaign claimed that Barack was never an ACORN trainer and that he was not associated with ACORN in 1992:

• 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

But, after the Cleveland Leader discovered archived documents that proved that Obama did indeed work as a trainer for ACORN and work with ACORN in 1992, the Obama Camp scrubbed the webpage with new “facts”:

The Obama Campaign now claims that Barack trained for ACORN trainer but was never hired by ACORN(?). They still have the misleading statement that ACORN was not part of Obama’s voter registration efforts in 1992:

• Fact: Barack was never an ACORN community organizer.
Fact: ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.
• Fact: ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992.

Got that?
Obama believed in the organization so much that he trained them for free.
At least they now admit he did work there.

Once again, here is the photo of Obama guiding the ACORN activists in 2004.
The Obama Camp was hoping this photo was buried forever in the internet archives:
