Doesn't matter who the blogger is. There are links in the blog to Chicago Times articles about this. I linked to this blog because the person had links to news sources and had done their homework on this.

Nothing wrong with putting the cart before the horse as long as you're willing to do all the pulling.

No. I linked to a blog that quotes and links to news sites. You can't address the $800,000, so you are deflecting.

ACORN/Project Vote voting drive targeted states Obama needs to win - Lynn Sweet

ACORN/Project Vote voting drive targeted states Obama needs to win

updated 4:41 Chicago time with McCain campaign react
WASHINGTON--In 1992, Barack Obama worked for Project Vote for about seven months; now Project Vote and ACORN--a coalition of community organizations serving low income families--just wrapped up a voter registration drive targeting battleground states Obama needs to win the White House.
Though officially non-partisan, the focus of the ACORN/Project Vote voter drive was on groups leaning Democratic in the presidential contest: African American, young, Latino and low income earners. They are called "historically underrepresented in elections" in a press release issued by the group on Monday. Republicans would call these target groups Democrats.
ACORN/Project Vote ran voter registration operations in 21 states; included are the battlegrounds Colorado, Florida, Michigan (since move to Obama) Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
McCain campaign spokesman Ben Porritt released this statement after this item was posted.
"ACORN is one of the largest radical organizations in America that represents another questionable association of Barack Obama's. Obama's campaign has been endorsed by ACORN's political action committee and their sister corporation received nearly $1 million from Obama's campaign which they originally misrepresented on their FEC report. ACORN masquerades their efforts as good yet the endless examples of voter fraud and wrongdoing makes clear that their true mission is to poison the political process. ACORN's efforts are reminiscent of the sleazy Chicago politics that Barack Obama embraces."

That's exactly what Laura Ingraham said. Obama PAID them to do it.

Sounds like a great program meant to increase voter registrations. I guess the McCain spokesman quoted in the last paragraph is bitter because the program didn't target nursing homes in Florida, KKK rallies, and NRA functions, which would have increased the republican voter registration numbers.
