obamacorn.jpgI’m sure the ACORN scandal will lead to the White House if investigations aren’t squashed.
First, this backdrop, from the Union News, October 17, 2008:

NPR reports that ACORN’s cofounder, Wade Rathke, also founded SEIU….
ACORN’s biggest union backer, the Service Employees International Union, gave more than $4 million to the community organization and its affiliates from 2006-07, according to Dept. of Labor filings….

Living in IL, I’ve sensed an unholy alliance between the SEIU and Barack Obama for several years. I didn’t realize ACORN was in that mix until recently.
In 2003-4 the SEIU invited me to join forces with it and a Chicago community organizing group to keep Christ Hospital from building another hospital in my suburb. SEIU cared because Christ wasn’t unionized….

I went to meetings at SEIU’s Chicago office. It was during that time I got an idea something odd was up, but there was a lot I didn’t (and still don’t) understand – Alinski, what community organizing really meant, the connection (which there was) to Trinity United Church of Christ. But I didn’t have the wherewithal to find the there there.
Now it turns out ACORN, the SEIU, Obama, and even Blagojevich are all somehow connected. There is a reason why both IL senators – Burris and Durbin – were among the 7 voting to retain funding of ACORN yesterday. I knew it before I scanned the roll call. Many State of IL officials are in bed with the SEIU, even AG Lisa Madigan.
As the pieces start to fall together, read this, from a July 20, 2009, report on ACORN by the US House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform:

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has repeatedly and deliberately engaged in systemic fraud. Both structurally and operationally, ACORN hides behind a paper wall of nonprofit corporate protections to conceal a criminal conspiracy on the part of its directors, to launder federal money in order to pursue a partisan political agenda and to manipulate the American electorate….
Committee investigators have unearthed documentation that ACORN and its affiliates conducted meticulous research that fed aggressive campaign initiatives designed to elect Democratic candidates in targeted races. ACORN forged both formal and informal connections with former IL Gov. Rod Blagojevich, OH Sen. Sherrod Brown and President Barack Obama, among others.
In other documents, ACORN affiliates take credit for the election of… Blagojevich. In the 2006 year-end report of ACORN affiliate SEIU, Local 880, efforts to elect Blagojevich and advance partisan political agendas are called “flawless.”…
Moreover, documents provided by former ACORN employees and contained in this report demonstrate the degree to which ACORN and ACORN affiliates organized to elect President Barack Obama in 2008….

Stay tuned. This would dwarf Watergate.
