Editor's Note: The following article incorrectly accused Cause of Action of engaging in voter fraud. The article previously read, "Off shoots like Cause of Action are actively engaging in voter registration fraud and are helping the Holder Justice Department fight Voter I.D. laws. These groups are also partnering with labor groups like the SEUI," and has been corrected to read, "Off shoots like Texas Organizing Project Education Fund are actively engaging in voter registration fraud and are helping the Holder Justice Department fight Voter I.D. laws. These groups are also partnering with labor groups like the SEUI." I apologize for the error.
The Washington Examiner has uncovered some video of then Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama gushing over the criminal enterpise ACORN.
"I moved to Chicago to organize."
"I've been fighting with ACORN, along side ACORN, on issues you care about my entire career."
"When I ran Project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it."
"There wasn't a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasn't down there with you."
Yes, the President of the United States was and still is a friend to this:
The former Texas ACORN chapter has a new name and a scheme to collect donations and divert them for political use in a way that abuses tax laws governing charitable organizations, according to a Washington-based public interest group.
Cause of Action, a nonprofit taxpayer watchdog, charged in a letter to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration that the tax-exempt Texas Organizing Project (TOP), formed from the ashes of scandal-ridden ACORN, is using money funneled to it by a closely associated group called the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund for political activity.
The fund gave nearly 80 percent of its revenues -- approximately $640,000 -- to the advocacy group in 2010, leading Cause of Action officials to believe its reason for being is to raise charitable donations to send to TOP, which is permitted to fund political activity. TOP has used its website to solicit support for Mary Ann Perez, a Democrat running for state representative.
Off shoots like Texas Organizing Project Education Fund are actively engaging in voter registration fraud and are helping the Holder Justice Department fight Voter I.D. laws. These groups are also partnering with labor groups like the SEUI.
Why does this matter? Because these groups are working to get President Obama re-elected, afterall, he has been very loyal to them.
