Change! Team Obama confirmed today that they will use community organizations like ACORN for the census count.
ACORN will help count the illegal immigrants, or as Speaker Pelosi calls them, the “American patriots.”
CNS News reported, via Mere Rhetoric:
The acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Thomas Mesenbourg, told CNSNews.com that the bureau intends to work with community organizations to make sure every illegal alien in the United States is counted in the 2010 Census. The Census is used to apportion the seats in the U.S. House of Representative. There are 435 House seats that are divided among the states in proportion to their population, which is determined by the decennial census.

A former organizer for ACORN pleaded guilty to federal charges for submitting fraudulent voter registrations in the St. Louis area just this week.
The radical ACORN organization worked closely with the Obama campaign during the election this past year although the community organizing group was not open about this. 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. 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 last year.
