ACORN Fights Back

Morguefile.com

School Days

Presidential candidate John McCain’s attack on ACORN – Associated Community Organization for Reform Now – confirms the success of the organization, the head of the group says. “This is testimony to the work we’ve done and success we’ve had,” Maude Hurd, president of ACORN, said in an interview with the AFRO. “When this attack started, we had just announced that we had registered 1.3 million new voters,” she said. “That’s just to say that someone’s running scared because of ACORN’s success.” McCain, who is running for president on the Republican ticket, lashed out at ACORN in the final debate against Barack Obama, contending the group “is on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy.” Factcheck.org, a non-partisan Web site, found those claims to be “exaggerated,” with “no evidence of any such democracydestroying fraud.” Hurd believes the McCain charges were politically motivated. She said, “Because it’s lowand moderate-income people, and people of color, I believe the McCain campaign thinks those voters are going to vote Democratic, which is not necessarily true.” ACORN is no stranger to controversy. For 38 years, the non-partisan organization has fought for social and economic justice for lowand moderate-income Americans. With 400,000 member families organized into more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in 110 cities nationwide, ACORN has over the years seen its share of criticism while advocating for affordable housing, living wages, healthcare for the underserved— and while organizing voter registration drives. But none has been as withering and baseless as this one. With the presidential election less than two weeks away, ACORN’s detractors allege the organization has engaged in massive voter registration fraud after the reported discovery of bogus names, such as Mickey Mouse

and Dallas Cowboys players Tony Romo and Terrell Owens, among the names submitted to election officials. Hurd said those workers, who were doing those things without ACORN’s knowledge or permission, were fired. “The evidence that has surfaced so far shows they faked forms to get paid for work they didn’t do, not to stuff ballot boxes.” ACORN, she said, is the victim of fraud, not the perpetrator of it. Hurd said the only things bogus are the charges themselves. And factcheck. org agrees. It concluded, “Neither ACORN nor its employees have been found guilty of, or even charged with, casting fraudulent votes.” The problem came about primarily because of the way ACORN operates. Rather than rely on volunteers, it pays people, many of them poor or unemployed, to sign up new voters. The idea was to help both those being registered and those doing the registration. Maud explained, “We have a zero tolerance policy for deliberate falsification of registration.” Most news account neglect to point out that ACORN is required by law to turn in all registration forms. And they also fail to note that it was the organization, in many instances, that first brought the phony registrations to the attention of authorities. The McCain camp apparently isn’t interested in those fine points, preferring to air misleading ads that seek to link Obama to ACORN, thereby undercutting his political support. McCain: I’m John McCain and I approve this message. Announcer: Who is Barack Obama? A man with “a political baptism performed at warp speed.” Vast ambition. After college, he moved to Chicago. Became a community organizer. There, Obama met Madeleine Talbot, part of the Chicago branch of ACORN. He was so impressive that he was asked to train the ACORN staff. What did ACORN in Chicago engage in? Bullying banks. Intimidation tactics. Disruption of business. ACORN forced banks to issue risky home loans. The same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we’re in today.

No wonder Obama’s campaign is trying to distance him from the group, saying, “Barack Obama Never Organized with ACORN.” But Obama’s ties to ACORN run long and deep. He taught classes for ACORN. They even endorsed him for President. But now ACORN is in trouble. Reporter: There are at least 11 investigations across the country involving thousands of potentially fraudulent ACORN forms. Announcer: Massive voter fraud. And the Obama campaign paid more than $800,000 to an ACORN front for get out the vote efforts. Pressuring banks to issue risky loans. Nationwide voter fraud. Barack Obama. Bad judgment. Blind ambition. Too risky for America. Since McCain’s comments, ACORN’s 87 offices have been bombarded with threats and racist mail. The day after the presidential debate, vandals broke into the organization’s Boston and Seattle offices and stole computers. After a Cleveland representative appeared on TV, an e-mail was sent to the local office saying she “is going to have her life ended.” A worker in Providence, R.I., received a threatening call saying, “We know you get off work at 9” and uttered racial epithets. A caller to one office left a message on the answering machine, saying: “Hi, I was just calling to let you know that Barack Obama needs to get hung. He’s a (expletive deleted) nigger, and he’s a piece of (expletive deleted). You guys are fraudulent, and you need to go to hell. All the niggers on oak trees. They’re gonna get all hung honeys, they’re going to get assassinated, they’re gonna get killed.” Another message said, “You liberal idiots. Dumb (expletive deleted). Welfare bums. You guys just (expletive deleted) come to our country, consume every natural resource there is, and make a lot of babies. That’s all you guys do. And then suck up the welfare and expect everyone else to pay for your hospital bills for your kids. I jus’ say let your kids die. That’s the best move. Just let your children die. Forget about paying for hospital bills for them. I’m not gonna do it. You guys are lowlifes. And I hope you all die.” Hurd thinks the hate calls will cease soon. “In two weeks, I think these attacks will be over. But I think it will be harder for us to get our name back on good graces because they really trashed us in the last few weeks.” But ACORN will not be deterred. “We’ve been fighting for a long time, for over 30 years, for the rights of low- and moderateincome people all across the country,” Hurd said. “We’re going to continue to fight for economic justice in our communities.”

Hudson, Jennifer’s sister – had been missing since Friday, when a relative found Julian’s grandmother, Darnell Donerson, 57, and his uncle, Jason Hudson, 29, shot to death in his grandmother’s home in the 7000 block of South Yale Avenue. An Amber Alert – a designation for high-risk missing children – was issued Friday after Julian was discovered missing after the murders. Police arrested William Balfour, the missing boy’s stepfather and estranged husband of Julia, at his girlfriend’s Southside apartment several hours after the murders. Balfour’s mother, Michele, has told reporters that her son had nothing to do with the slayings. Balfour remains a suspect in
