Palin Tells Obama To Rein In ACORN …Update: Obama Responds (Video)
Considering Obama’s first big “community organizer” job was with ACORN, considering he trained ACORN, considering he worked with ACORN, considering he donated $800,000 to ACORN this year, and considering THEY CANVASSED FOR OBAMA, he ought to have some pull with the group.
Two different Ohio blogs including Ohio Daily Blog posted an email from ACORN on February 21, 2008 announcing that Ohio ACORN was holding a Get Out The Vote project with the OBAMA Campaign.
Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin suggested Tuesday that Barack Obama shares responsibility for recent reports of voter fraud conducted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
“Obama has a responsibility to rein in ACORN,” Palin said during an interview with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Palin said the group is responsible for the “unconscionable situation we are facing now with voter fraud” and attacked the Obama campaign for not addressing the problem after the McCain campaign sent a letter to the Democratic camp urging action against voter fraud in September.
Shortly before Palin went on the air, the Obama campaign e-mailed around its response, dated Sept. 23, characterizing the McCain campaign’s concern as “a starkly political maneuver to deflect attention from the reality of the suppression strategies pursued by national, state and Republican Party committees.”
Meanwhile… The Buckeye Institute has filed a well deserved RICO suit against ACORN in Ohio.
Here’s the video of Obama excusing ACORN- the latest “distraction”:
