ACORN, What ACORN?

"Frankly, it's not something I've followed closely," Mr. Obama claimed, adding he wasn't even aware the group had been the recipient of significant federal funding. "This is not the biggest issue facing the country. It's not something I'm paying a lot of attention to," he said.

Barack Obama on the ACORN controversy

This would be entirely believable except...

Mr. Obama took great pains to act as if he barely knew about Acorn. In fact, his association goes back almost 20 years. In 1991, he took time off from his law firm to run a voter-registration drive for Project Vote, an Acorn partner that was soon fully absorbed under the Acorn umbrella.

The drive registered 135,000 voters and was considered a major factor in the upset victory of Democrat Carol Moseley Braun over incumbent Democratic Senator Alan Dixon in the 1992 Democratic Senate primary.

Mr. Obama's success made him a hot commodity on the community organizing circuit. He became a top trainer at Acorn's Chicago conferences. In 1995, he became Acorn's attorney, participating in a landmark case to force the state of Illinois to implement the federal Motor Voter Law. That law's loose voter registration requirements would later be exploited by Acorn employees in an effort to flood voter rolls with fake names.

Anyone else think the fecal matter is going to hit the oscillating device on this?

Anyone who believes that he knew nothing about it needs to contact me. I have tropical resort on the banks of the Yukon that I want to sell.

Amazing isn't it, how leftists can tell lies with such a straight face, it's almost as if they don't know the difference between truth and lies.

The connections between BO and ACORN are mindboggling and yet the lies stand mostly unreported and uninvestigated by the media.

Shoprat, agreed

MK, there is no difference for them, only what they believe

Cube, agreed
