Obama Campaign Caught in ACORN Lies

Having the media behind it has encouraged the Obama campaign to take the Audacity of Hype to appalling extremes of arrogance. Obama’s Fight the Smears site even denies that BHO worked for the Radical Left vote fraud outfit ACORN, even though it is public knowledge that he was a top trainer for ACORN brownshirts (or rather, redshirts), and represented them as a lawyer as part of their campaign to force banks to make mortgage loans based on race instead of ability to repay — a contributing factor to the subprime meltdown that led directly to the current economic crisis.

But look what the Obamunists failed to stuff down the memory hole:


The picture above comes via the Cleveland Leader, which reports:

Attempts to hide evidence of Obama’s involvement with ACORN have included wiping the web clean of potentially damaging articles that had appeared, and were previously publicly accessible. Unfortunately, those behind the attempted cover-up failed to realize that in today’s day and age, nothing disappears forever. There also exists another layer of the web, the hidden web, which is full of information included in proprietary scholarly databases where these very same “missing” articles can be easily uncovered.

Digging into the hidden web, the Leader retrieved an article published in the journal Social Policy by ACORN honcho Toni Foulkes, from which it quotes:

Obama took the case, known as ACORN vs. Edgar (the name of the Republican governor at the time) and we won. Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992 that made it possible for Carol Moseley Braun to win the Senate that year. Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5,000 of them).

Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for State Senate and then his failed bid for U.S. Congress in 1996. By the time he ran for U.S. Senate, we were old friends.

Social Policy recently scrubbed this article from its website. You have to wonder what else will be scrubbed from the historical record if the Hard Left’s messiah and his glassy-eyed acolytes manage to take control of not just the mainstream press, but the government.

Would you buy used snake oil from this community organizer?
