A Lurch to Progressive Fascism

Many election cycles needed to drain dangerous idea swamp

Unexpectedly, ACORN-style corruption still in fashion


Cheating by leftwing thugs neither mended nor ended
As I wrote previously, ACORN is not dead.

It’s astroturfing for all it’s worth.

ACORN‘s Project Vote subsidiary is working with a “rebranded” Pennsylvania ACORN chapter to push Pennsylvania Democrats to vote in the upcoming congressional elections.

Leading Project Vote’s effort is ACORN executive Amy Busefink who is under indictment in Nevada for conspiracy to commit voter registration fraud.

The “new” group is called Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice (PNSJ). PNSJ, a 501c3 nonprofit educational group, is operating out of ACORN’s offices at 846 North Broad Street in Philadelphia.

Longtime ACORN national board member and Philadelphia ACORN president Carol Hemingway is on the board of PNSJ and its sister nonprofit, Pennsylvania Communities Organizing for Change (PCOC). Both nonprofits filed their incorporation documents with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on Jan. 8, 2010.

BigGov union cash pollutes 2010 vote

Dishonest Politicians Aided By Dishonest, Union-dense LSM

That’s right, three of the five largest campaign spenders this year are not business or pro-business groups but unions affiliated with the Democrats and dominated by public employees.

The largest spender is AFSCME (the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees), which is spending $87.5 million, more than any business group and nearly ten times what Sargent claims is the entire spending budget for outside groups on the left (maybe he doesn’t get the Journal, but somebody at the Post should have been embarrassed by how misleading his figures are in light of the Journal’s report, which has been online since last night).

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which consists heavily of public employees, and the National Education Association (NEA), which consists of public school teachers, round out the top five at $44 and $40 million, respectively.

It’s not hard to see why they’re running scared: as the WSJ notes, all three benefited significantly from the funneling of stimulus money to state and local governments (private sector unions have their own reasons to fear a change in control of Congress in 2010). This is government by the government, of the government, for the government. And it shows the absurd hypocrisy of Democrats complaining about pro-business groups trying to rally a beleaguered private sector to defend itself against the government when the government’s own employees’ unions are outspending the biggest business groups.

The Democrats aren’t against big outside spending in elections. They just don’t like it when the other side gets to fight back.
