A former staffer for an affiliate of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now testified today that the organization was provided a “donor list” from the presidential campaign of Barack Obama in late 2007 for fundraising efforts.
Anita Moncrief, a former Washington, D.C. staffer for Project Vote, which she described as a sister organization of ACORN, said her supervisor told her the list of campaign contributors came from the Obama campaign. Moncrief said she has a copy of a “development plan” that outlines how Obama contributors who had “maxed out” under federal contribution limits would be targeted to give to Project Vote, and that it was her job to identify such contributors.
So… Obama claims to have “no ties” to ACORN, and yet we find out that Obama used to work for them, has spoken at ACORN meetings, represented them as an attorney in two court cases, paid them $830,000 for get out the vote projects… AND is providing them with potential donor lists?
To quote Shakespeare, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.”
