ACORN was the largest radical leftist group in America before controversy forced the discredited community organizing group to disband. This radical group worked closely with the Obama camp during the 2008 election but was not open about the relationship. The photo below was scrubbed from the ACORN website before the election:

One of Barack Obama’s first big “community organizer” jobs involved ACORN in 1992. He worked along side ACORN before he became an elected official. Obama also trained ACORN employees. He represented ACORN in court. Obama worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN in 2008 for voter registration efforts.
And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama in 2008.

In 2009 Obama promoted a top ACORN operative, Patrick Gaspard, whose organization was fined $775,000 for election violations, to a top post in the White House. Gaspard is helping shape domestic policy today.

Barack Obama was not honest about his relationship with ACORN during the 2008 election.

In 2009 Congress voted to defund ACORN and its affiliates. But that didn’t stop the Obama Administration from giving $560,000 to ACORN affiliates in 2010. Obama may not know economics. His foreign policy is a disaster. He makes a horrible leader. But, he knows community organizing.

Now this…
The Obama Administration has given a former ACORN official nearly HALF A BILLION DOLLARS after leaving the corrupt far left group.
Judicial Watch reported:

The Obama Administration has given a former director at the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) nearly half a billion dollars to offer “struggling” Illinois homeowners mortgage assistance, a Judicial Watch investigation has found.

It means the ACORN official (Joe McGavin) will go from operating a corrupt leftist community group that’s banned by Congress from receiving federal funding to controlling over $445 million in U.S. taxpayer funds. The money is part of a $7.6 billion Treasury Department program to help the “unemployed or substantially underemployed” make their mortgage payments.

In this case, JW found that a subcomponent of the state-run Illinois Housing Development Authority, known as the Illinois Hardest Hit Program, has just received a generous $445,603,557 Treasury infusion. The Obama Administration established Hardest Hit in 2010 to provide targeted aid to families in states hit hardest by the economic and housing market downturn, according to its website.

In early 2011 McGavin was appointed as director of Hardest Hit. Before that he was director of counseling for ACORN Housing in Chicago and operations manager for a Chicago ACORN offshoot called Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA). His strong ties to ACORN make him a suspect candidate to handle such a huge amount of taxpayer dollars.

The Obama-tied community organization supposedly shut down after a series of exposés about its illegal activities.

Unbelievable.

    ACORN’s back: Front-group games

    [Voters beware: Under new names' guise, the extreme-left
    Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now is
    gearing up to help re-elect President Barack Obama in 2012]

    more here..

    btw: ACORN, not unlike AQ, can change it’s names as
    many times as it likes, it’s not going anywhere, ever.. :-(

  2. ACORN was outted and America is aware.

    Not enough people to get Obama elected BG.

    Many democrats have jumped ship.

    It’s either Obama or the party goes down.

    Easy choice thrown the NOTUS under the bus.

    Powder is dry

    ACORN Whistleblower Says Obama DOJ ‘Has Gone Wild’

    ["The next few months are critical to the telling of our story," she said. "Our goal is the make the 2012 elections the freest and fairest the country has ever seen." Engelbrecht acknowledged this is a tall order. The various pressure groups opposed to photo identification requirements are very well funded and well organized. But they are not on the side of public opinion.]

    i say we get this guy on it asap!!

    One Vote … With Valid ID

    [Perhaps Congress can invite former President Jimmy Carter to provide expert testimony to support states voter ID laws because it appears by their copious years of reporting, that it has been his Carter Center’s decades-long international experience that voters adequately identifying themselves to election officials provides “additional safeguards”, “a substantial degree of security and confidence in the electoral” system, no matter what country, race, what color, what language.]

  4. Military Conservative is right. This is what a coup looks like. Think about it- no accountability for any money, no succession, rampant corruption, trying for domestic strife across the country. He’s gonna go for it.

  5. Greed and corruption is everywhere. Barry will find a way to get our money where it is not supposed to go. Illinois has shown no responsibility for the financial problems of the state. They now are taking Medicaid money to cover public employee pensions.

    They certainly are not “wasting ” this crisis.

  6. Once full blown HPD is developed it’s hard to quell. I don’t believe there’s a cure either.

  7. let us all pray for our country and that we will win our country back!

  8. [The money is part of a $7.6 billion Treasury Department program to help the “unemployed or substantially underemployed” make their mortgage payments.] money down a hole?

  9. Nothing to see here folks, move along. Maybe they need to funnel more money
    to Solyndras’ unemployed for their bonus program.

  10. Call the auditors, stat!

  11. He will raid every bank,Govt. Dept. ,etc.. he can his hands on
    If he can’t steal the election ,he’ll steal every $$$ he can get his hands on
    We’ve seen the video of flash mobs in stores,thats them raiding the govt. $$$ coffers

    A blue/purple state Wisc. just flipped 20 pts from ’08 ,even he can’t cheat that much

    I believe for the first time,they realize,they’re going to lose…BIG

    But remember “the cornered animal” is the most dangerous

  12. Related story: Finally, conclusive proof that Obama lied about being a member of the New Party socialists http://doctorbulldog.files.wordpress.com/2008/10/np1.jpg

  13. It means the ACORN official (Joe McGavin) will go from operating a corrupt leftist community group that’s banned by Congress from receiving federal funding to controlling over $445 million in U.S. taxpayer funds.

    I’m willing to bet that he’ll skim some money off that sum for himself, amounts small enough that they won’t be noticed immediately, if at all.

  14. More handouts to black parasites.

  15. When did robbery become acceptable?

  16. This scenario comes to mind: McGavin oversees a program to get Fannie/Freddie mortgages for OWS and welfare types. They move into private housing & stop paying the mortgages. The Executive Branch declares a moratorium on foreclosures. ‘Obama’s people’ go on living in the houses. There you have it: the socialist dream, ‘free’ housing for all.

    ‘Obama’s people’ could branch out to dominate new neighorhoods & subdivisions.
