I wish I could say this is one of Michelle Malkin’s cute ACORN photoshops, but noooo, I found this disturbing image at ACORN’s own website where they announce their latest efforts to bully companies into complying with Obama’s plan to prevent foreclosures:
In the first effort of its kind, ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) surveyed all major mortgage servicing companies in the nation, and has found that at least 76% of outstanding mortgage loans are serviced by companies who have committed to implementing the Obama plan. ACORN expects further progress in the coming weeks as the Obama Administration releases the contracts mortgage servicing companies will sign to participate in the program. ACORN will continue to encourage all mortgage servicers to join the program, with plans to target those outlier companies that refuse to engage in sensible foreclosure prevention.
Other ACORN actions include:
Tell Your Senator to Support President Obama’s 2010 Budget!
Needless to say, patriotic Americans should do the exact opposite of what ACORN suggests. Tell your Senator to not support Obama’s budget. Tell Your Senator to not support Obama’s ruinous bills. Support Sheriff Joe Arpaio. If you see any “home defenders” in your neighborhood, call the cops, etc.
Hat tip: Atlas Shrugs.
More than half the voter registrations turned in by ACORN canvassers during the last election were not valid, according to testimony to be presented before a House Judiciary subcommittee.
If a canvasser was caught committing fraud, ACORN threw the individual “under the bus,” MonCrief said. ACORN employees were briefed on how to deny that voter registration fraud existed, she said.
According to MonCrief, the Obama presidential campaign called her in October 2007 asking for coordination in soliciting donations from people who had already made the maximum contribution to Obama allowed by election laws. MonCrief testified that she was given a massive database of Obama donors who had already reached the limit. Her task was to cull it for potential donors who would then donate to Project Vote, an ACORN affiliate which targets individuals and entities to solicit donations.
If true, MonCrief’s allegations constitute violations of the Internal Revenue Code, federal campaign finance laws, and laws against voter registration fraud, according to a memo by Cleta Mitchell, co-chairman of the Republican National Lawyers Association.
I expect Republicans to act on this immediately…3…2..1…..HELLO?
Hey! Is there anyway we can give this group more money? What? Obama’s already taken care of that?
