Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is the first national candidate ever to hire ACORN, a controversial non-profit accused of voter fraud across the country, for get out the vote activities.
Obama’s campaign paid $800,000 to a subsidiary of the liberally-leaning non-profit Association of Community Organizers for Reform called Citizens Services Incorporated campaign to increase voter turnout.

This information, however, was not properly disclosed to the Federal Election Commission. The Obama campaign said it hired CSI to do “polling, advance work and staging events” according to reports submitted to the FEC during the Democratic primary.

The FEC said the Obama campaign needed to disclose ACORN was engaging in get out the vote activities last August. At the time the Obama campaign called the mistake a “clerical error.”

To date, ACORN has been accused of voter fraud in 15 states this election cycle.

Hey its only illegal if you get caught. Oh yeah they did get caught.
Its not Obama's fault his associates are so questionable.
You ever wonder why the DEM's went crazy when it was suggested that voters be required to present valid ID before voting? Kind of makes it more challenging to commit fraud when you require them to have positive ID.

Requiring photo ID at voting booths!!! That's just racist!

Seriously, voter fraud is happening on a widespread and organized scale... The people can't allow this regardless of which candidate is behind it.

Very true. Whats laughable is when one party accuses the other of cheating.

All the Obama ACORN connections have been DEBUNKED. But thanks for playing our game!

"The accusation that Obama was a lawyer for ACORN is deceptively vague. In fact, Obama at one time represented a large coalition of groups that happened to include ACORN, as well as the U.S. Department of Justice and a host of other entities. The legal work was in support of an uncontroversial "Motor Voter" law. The second charge -- that Obama "served his years as a trainer of activists" for ACORN -- has now also been contradicted. According to writer Matthew Vadum, whom Motley has cited, "in 1992, Obama took time off from his new job at Davis Miner to direct ACORN's voter mobilization arm, Project Vote, a hugely successful voter registration campaign... Time magazine described Project Vote in 2004 as 'a nonpartisan arm of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN).' In fact, an Obama campaign spokesman told the Huffington Post that Project Vote was not directly associated with ACORN until 1994, two years after Obama organized for the group. The campaign provided a statement from the Project Vote's executive director during the period of Obama's involvement. "

Here's what is true: In recent years, ACORN employees have been investigated multiple times for voter registration fraud.

...

no evidence has yet surfaced to show that the ACORN employees who submitted fraudulent registration forms intended to pave the way for illegal voting. Rather, they were trying to get paid by ACORN for doing no work.
