ACORN PAC – “ACORN Votes” endorses Obama
What a shocker. Why wouldn’t they when Obama has been working with them since the 90’s? ACORN Votes are ACORN members under a different name basically – maybe even literally.
ACORN’s Political Action Committee, ACORN Votes, announced Feb. 21 that it had endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for President.
ACORN PAC’s representatives went through an extensive process of interviewing each of the major Democratic candidates.
ACORN is a national anti-poverty organization which has hundreds of thousands of members in low- and moderate-income neighborhoods in 104 cities.
ACORN Votes moderator, Maude Hurd.
ACORN’s members have deep appreciation and respect for Senators Clinton and Edwards and their work on behalf of our communities. What it came down to was that Senator Obama is the candidate who best understands and can effect change on the issues ACORN cares about like stopping foreclosures, enacting fair and comprehensive immigration reform, and building stronger and safer communities across America.
Alicia Russell of Arizona, western representative for ACORN Vote:
I think he will commit himself to providing us the necessary path for the low-income and moderate-income families to improve their lives.
He’s on the same level as we are, and sees our issues as we do.
He’s on the same level as we are = racial code words = as in he’s the same color.
barr’s a multimillionaire living in a $1.65M mansion and running for president with his own Air Force 1 is not on anyone’s level – certainly not anyone at ACORN.
Simple identity politics and payback for the years he worked with them.
