The Census Has Officially Been Hijacked by the LeftSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 03/17/2009 - 20:44
Leading up to the 2008 election, the Obama camp was deep in the midst of a scandal with community grassroots organization ACORN. ACORN which maintains they are a non-bias organization that reaches out to urban communities, was the focus of much scrutiny in 2007 when Washington State filed charges against them for 1,700 bogus voter registrations. Reports also surfaced leading up to the election, that ACORN was employing the same fraudulent practices in Florida, and many of the other key battle ground states (even going so far as to register Mickey Mouse). It should also be noted that ACORN played and integral role in the Obama campaign, he even paid them an exorbitant amount of money to get out the vote.
Fast Forward post-election, the dust has settled, ACORN’s man won, and guess who is being summoned to help in the 2010 Census? ACORN. Yes you heard it right.
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now has signed on with national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to reach the 306 million people needed for the task.
