ACORN-SEIU-White House questions swirl

What did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?
More proof has emerged of White House political director Patrick Gaspard's ties to the radical advocacy group ACORN. Gaspard, a longtime operative for ACORN and one of its partisan arms, New York's Working Families Party, currently holds the title of White House political affairs director, the same title Karl Rove held in President Bush's White House.

Internal ACORN documents show that Gaspard gave ACORN $40,000 over the past two years. Specifically, while Gaspard worked as an executive vice president of Service Employees International Union Local 1199 in New York he gave ACORN $15,000 in 2007 and $25,000 in 2008.

That's an awfully large tithe for someone who made $111,894 in 2007 and who has a wife and two children. The $111,894 figure comes from SEIU 1199's most recent publicly available tax return. (If salary and deferred benefits are combined the total is $151,869.)

Hillary Clinton would have been a better president than Barack Obama and one that republicans may have actually found tolerable, if you can link ACORN to the cheating that went on on behalf of Barack Obama during the 2008 democratic caucus contests AND also further expose the illegal credit card campaign contributions that Barack Obama happily accepted in 2008, you will do the entire country a service.

We can't have a real democracy if either side cheats when it comes to how they elect their presidential candidate.
