Obama & ACORN

(Oct. 23, 2008) My last political cartoon published before the election.
Someone asked me "You can't really hold Obama responsible for ACORN, can you?" More like the other way around - ACORN created Obama, in a way. Part of the "community organizing" of which Obama boasted was for ACORN. He also represented ACORN in court as an attorney. For years, he volunteered as a trainer for ACORN's voter registration workers. When he ran for the Illinois State Senate in 1996, Obama was a member of a fringe political party, the New Party, which was co-founded by ACORN. Obama's Presidential campaign hired a division of the "non-partisan" ACORN to "get out the vote" in the Democratic primaries. The new director of "non-partisan" ACORN officially endorsed Obama for President! (How non-partisan can you get?) - Jerry Breen
