ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU! « GretaWire (http://gretawire.foxnews.com/2008/10/16/assigment-for-you/ - broken link)

Quote:
Read this…

1. The Secretary of State of Ohio Jennifer Brunner filed a request in the Supreme Court relating to the underlying claim in her state that there has been voter registration fraud…with ties to the work of ACORN in registering voters.

2. A group — the Service Employees International Union [SEIU] — filed an amicus brief in the United States Supreme Court asking the Supreme Court to rule with the Secretary of State of Ohio (and essentially asking for a ruling that would be favorable to ACORN in that it would “call off the dogs.”)

3. I thought it curious that SEIU would file an amicus brief for Brunner and did some quick research …and now I need more indepth research (which is where YOU come in.) According to my quick research..the same person who started ACORN, started SIEU. His name is Wade Rathke. So then I wondered, who is Wade Rathke?

4. I did some really quick research and learned that Rathke was a member of the anti war group SDS. This is where YOU come in again. If you know 60’s history, you know that the Weather Underground was an offshoot of SDS. There was some disagreement in the late 60’s and members of the SDS - Bill Ayers and his wife - left and formed/ joined the Weather Underground.

So now I am wondering: do Rathke and Ayers know each other (from SDS / Weather Underground days)? what is the connection now, if any, between them? between ACORN and SEIU? between them and Senator Obama?

There may be absolutely NO connection…but we should at least take a look at it. If there is none, we should make that known. Senator Obama should not have to fight the viral nature of rumors. If there is a connection or relation, it might be of some further interest that is worth more investigation. And it may turn out, if there is a connection, that the connection is of no moment…but we should at least see what the facts are and then reach our individual conclusions.

So there is your assigment….get looking!!
Hmmm. Of course, the media will ignore this.

Yes, it most certainly was. Lovely isn't it? This is what ACORN has always been all about.
