Obama Again Standing with ACORN

When a left wing movement needs an injection, who do you call? ACORN, that's who. It appears that the office for the much beleaguered Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) is a hub of supportive activity for the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Remember, ACORN has been thoroughly disgraced and discredited on multiple fronts - including several offices' willingness to help shelter a prostitution ring that used 14-year-old foreign children - that it had to go underground and actually changed its name in New York to New York Communities for Change (NYCC). Remember, Barack Obama is standing with OWS protesters and by extension, he's standing with ACORN... again.

Via Fox News:
The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed “leaderless” Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing “guerrilla” protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell

The former director of New York ACORN, Jon Kest, and his top aides are now busy working at protest events for New York Communities for Change (NYCC). That organization was created in late 2009 when some ACORN offices disbanded and reorganized under new names after undercover video exposes prompted Congress to cut off federal funds.

NYCC’s connection to ACORN isn’t a tenuous one: It works from the former ACORN offices in Brooklyn, uses old ACORN office stationery, employs much of the old ACORN staff and, according to several sources, engages in some of the old organization’s controversial techniques to raise money, interest and awareness for the protests.

Sources said NYCC has hired about 100 former ACORN-affiliated staff members from other cities – paying some of them $100 a day - to attend and support Occupy Wall Street. Dozens of New York homeless people recruited from shelters are also being paid to support the protests, at the rate of $10 an hour, the sources said.
Based on what is quite publicly known about ACORN, it's likely a sign of desperation for Obama to once again align with the group. Make no mistake; by expressing support for the protesters, that's exactly what he's doing unless he denounces ACORN.

If OWS fails, it will be a huge blow to this administration. Perhaps that's why the ACORN zombies are being resurrected.
