Last Thursday, Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden did not tell the truth when hit with tough questions about ACORN from a veteran journalist.
“Aren’t you embarrassed,” asked Orlando, Florida, WFTV anchor Barbara West, “by the blatant attempt to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?”
“I am not embarrassed by it,” replied Biden. “We are not tied to them. We have not paid them one single penny to register a single solitary voter…. We register the voters ourselves, and so there is no relationship.”
A Newsmax Fact Check shows that Obama has had a long relationship with the group and the Obama campaign did indeed pay an ACORN subsidiary over $800,000. The radical group called ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) is a multi-faced creature its founders “spun off” into approximately 100 separate legal entities.
In our Oct. 6 investigation, Newsmax reported that ACORN’s founders “created a shell game under which money acquired by one ACORN front group, Project Vote (run in Illinois in 1992 by Barack Obama), would be moved to other ACORN-controlled groups,” some openly political and others tax-exempt and prohibited from direct political activism.
Does anyone doubt whether this and other similar groups known to be associated with Mr. Obama will not have immediate entre to the White House? Mr. Obama has already publicly expressed his intent to have all these groups actively participate in the formation of the policies of his government.
One question immediately comes to mind: Does anyone really consider this type of policy to be "all-inclusive" for all Americans?
