ACORN Housing also helped to inflate the mortgage bubble. It bragged in a 1999 pamphlet that it had strong-armed banks into accepting food stamps and welfare as income on home loan applications.

Will AHCOA reemerge in another form? We’ll see soon.

New ACORN groups have popped up all over America. These groups were created after ACORN Inc. filed for bankruptcy. Some were formed in anticipation of the bankruptcy.

ACORN’s state-level chapters have incorporated as new nonprofit corporations. These new organizations are controlled by ACORN personnel.

The new groups that have surfaced so far are: Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA –  lucha is Spanish for fight); Arkansas Community Organizations; Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE); Home Defenders League (which is a project of ACCE); New England United for Justice (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island); Delawareans for Social and Economic Justice; Communities United (Maryland, District of Columbia); Communities United Training and Education Fund (Maryland, District of Columbia); Organize Now (Florida); A Community Voice (Louisiana); Alliance Institute (Louisiana); Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change; Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment; Communities United New Jersey; Organizers in the Land of Enchantment (OLÉ – New Mexico); The Black Institute (New York); New York Communities for Change; New York Communities Organizing Fund; Action NC (North Carolina); Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice; Action United (corporate name: Pennsylvania Communities Organizing for Change); Texas Organizing Project; Texas Organizing Project Education Fund; and Organization United for Reform Washington (OUR Washington).

ACORN International (known in the U.S. as Community Organizations International)operates around the world, spreading the gospel of so-called social justice. The nonprofit group, which is headed by ACORN founder Wade Rathke, has affiliates in Argentina,Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Honduras, India, Italy, Kenya, Mexico,Peru, and South Korea.

And don’t forget Project Vote, the branch of ACORN that Barack Obama worked for in 1992 when he ran a successful get-out-the-vote drive that helped to elect the radical leftist Carol Moseley Braun as Democratic senator from Illinois. Marxist academic and activist Frances Fox Piven is on Project Vote’s board of directors.

Project Vote and other so-called civil rights groups are working with Eric Holder’s Justice Department to undermine electoral integrity. The federal agency has filed numerous lawsuits attempting to block voter ID laws and to prevent illegal immigrants and the dead from being removed from voter rolls.

Project Vote’s official position is that voter fraud is a myth invented by Republicans to disenfranchise Democratic voters. The group vilifies as a racist anyone who thinks voter ID requirements are a good idea and constantly presses to make voting requirements in general even more lax than they now are.

And although Project Vote officials won’t admit it, the tax-exempt group’s number one priority this year is reelecting President Obama.

    This tax-payer funded racket will rise again under another catchy name. Then the tax payer money will flood in once again!! Another of MANY reasons the "president" must not get a second term!!

    • fiddler

      Keep saying to others that the SCOTUS has ruled ACA as a TAX. We need to knock over the beehive.

    • BahBah09

      President got the second Term!!!! ACORN Housing did do a lot for people and in saving their homes! It was a good organization with a few bad seeds like I'm sure the company you work for, (if you work) have.

  • Amused

    Ha ha …and where will the "Great Moriarity " pop up next to foil the next elecion ! Wooooooo , no one knows but The Phantom . Rest assured though , conservatives will ferret out this great evil …….should they lose the next election . For we all know community activism is a dirt word in the conservative lexicon . Imagine the nerve of people , they should all just sit down and shut -up before the economic , social ,and moral paragons of conservative mindset . In other words , dont exercise your constitutional rights for that , the conservative will dictate by hook or by crook on just what those rights should be .

      Don't you have a union boss to service, amused? That's so amusing!! I found the union anthem! It goes something like this (I'll get the tune itself on utube). I'll tag it "Amused" in your honor. The lyrics go like this:

      gimme gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme gimme
      gimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimme.
      gimme gimme gimme gimme, gimme gimme gimme gimme
      gimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimmegimme.

      • amused

        there's a better song about you kafir – it goes " ignoramus ,ignoramus ignoramus …hey are all conservatives as mind-f—ked as you ?

    • fiddler

      Amused is irrelevant. Amused is amusing to the rest of us.

  • Amused

    Lets all just sit back and let groups like Alec and the Koch Bros. pay for our legislation , after all ,they've paid "good money " for favorable legislation pushed through vis-a-vis the bribe takers in Washington . And now that's constitutional , made so by the once darling Supreme Court , which now because of ruling Obama Care constitutional , ain't so darling anymore .

    • kafir4life

      There's a union meeting, Amused. Don't forget to give them your money so they'll make your decisions for you. You must be horribly low skilled. But it's the thuggery that gets me to avoid union made goods and services whenever possible. It's like giving money directly to President Stinky (-bo).

    • fiddler

      This is your catharsis for having to pay union dues.

      • amused

        just bend over fiddler and kafir , let ALEC sock it to ya , just be smart enough to ask for some grease the next session . BTW , I paid my dues gladly , there are too many schmucks like you two in management , in fact I'll give you an example , for speaking out about a policy that the company claimed was saving money and actually afer some really simple computation proved to be costing almost 3x's what they thought they were saving, because I went above the 2nd level manager who did nothing , they fired me ./ I sat home for a month and a half while the UNION took up my cause , and got me my job back with full pay and the average of [projected ovrtime the rest of the crew had made in that period . 4 months later the company abandoned their costly policy and followed my humble advice .
        YOU TWO ARE SCHMUCKS JUST AS MUCH AS THE COMPANY MANGERS WERE IDIOTS > LONG LIVE UNIONS …and PLEASE ! DO HOLD YOUR BREATH WAITING FOR THEM TO DISAPPEAR >

        • kafir4life

          You are so amusing amused!!! You got fired because you deserved it. If you had skills you wouldn't need the thugs. Yes, you happily give your money to the union. That's due to a lack of skill AND intelligence…..You see….your management doesn't need to be told how to run THEIR business (unless your union owns it…..are you a GM worker?), and they don't tell you how to properly service your union rep.

  • Amused

    LOLOLOL….you guys are too much .

    • kafir4life

      Laugh out loud out loud out loud? Is that a union thug thing?

      • amused

        yea it is , is making childish remarks a conservative thing ? yea you bet it is schmuck ! That and whining .

        • kafir4life

          gimmegimmegimme amused. gimmegimmegimme.

  • marios

    Corruption, rubbery, froud…. all go from Democrats. Who is in WH? Such situation more suitable for 3rd world country but not for our great (or what was great before BHO reign). Wake up America because not too late!
    BHO is one term pres (and it is already too much for us).

    • fiddler

      Don't expect "amused" to concede. He is an entitlement type. They have a totally different mindset.

  • Steve Chavez

    YES, I'M "AMUSED" since no one but ACORN and AHCOA themselves are to blame. Did the KOCH brothers and ALEC BRING DOWN THESE GROUPS or was it the exposing of their real agenda, and illegal agenda, that was exposed by a couple of kids seeking youtube fame who only caught the ACORN workers with their own words?

    We all know that voter fraud was rampant in 2008 to aid Obama since it was payback for his years and support for ACORN. Then with another youtube video, the militant Black Panthers were caught in front of voting center intimidating voters and still ERIC HOLDER DISMISSED THE CASE.

    NOW, THE NEW YORK CONGRESSIONAL RACE OF CHARLIE RANGEL is being accused of VOTER FRAUD by his Democrat opponent who has now asked ERIC HOLDER TO INVESTIGATE. CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT A DEMOCRAT COULD BE THE ONE THAT EXPOSES THE EXTENT AND METHODS OF VOTER FRAUD BY HIS FELLOW DEMOCRATS??? I eagerly await the investigation by ERIC HOLDER! LOL!!!

    • fiddler

      Dismiss "amused". It will keep your blood pressure from building. He loves nothing more than infuriating people who visit here. Don't give him an audience.

  • Arnun

    Imagine that, Acorn isn't paying their "fair share" just like Warren Buffet…

  • Tanstaafl jw

    Rats will leave one ship to board another.

  • "gunner"

    "amused" is not amusing, just sad. prattling about the koch brothers, et. al. while his lords and masters of the left screw him blind behind his back, and he never even gets kissed after they're done with him.

  • guest

    A pigs ear dressed up by the mighty O. Bad credit, poor job retention skills… Anyway the next election is coming up, and they will be rehired to intimidate wrong thinking conservative voters.

    When you see them blocking the poll booths, as they will soon be, call the VFW, bike clubs and Legions to have people come up and stand beside this intimidation called black panthers, or Acorn.. The members can escort the elderly though these trolls to the voting area. Ask the Americans to wear the flag on their jackets!

    Think how many millions of hard working American tax payers are unaware of the fraud in_government as the media they are tuned into does not expose the criminal behavior of the_Obama gang. Democrats are so discredited with honest people they are a measure of_just how many people have fallen from right and honest thinking. Our schools have ruined_a generation with falsehood and a Godless humanism that destroys responsible conduct_the end product of education, uneducated, programmed, trained seals.

    Government has been used to ruin society, we must say no to this continuing, change government
    and reestablish a decent society that is not out to lie, cheat and steal which has become the hallmark of the Democratic Party and Republican Rhinos………………………William
