Rick Perry signed a bill promoted by community activist group ACORN and posed with members as he signed it. In July of 2005, Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill making changes in home lending that community group ACORN had promoted. Perry signed the bill surrounded by ACORN members.

Hey, I have no problem with it, but those of you Republicans supporting this guy should know who you are supporting. He would say or do anything to get elected and he will change sides midstream if it is politically expedient to do so. He is just a politician with no other goals than getting elected.

In 2005 no one knew just how bad ACORN was; the scandals hadn't broken yet.

Actually, that is not true. Voter-fraud accusations against ACORN surfaced in 2004 in Florida, Ohio, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Wisconsin.

Mock the Vote

Now if you had said that it was not politically favorable to go against Acorn until later, then I would agree with you.

The point is that Perry would sleep with a dog if he thought that dogs had a vote in the election. He is simply a political prostitute.

Give it up, do you really expect a claim like this to stick or make a difference? For the mostpart it was about 2006 that ACORN started really getting exposed. There are a lot of fraud accusations that are later proven untrue or never followed up on.
