Scrubbing The Truth From The Web

A tip of the hat to Charles Johnson @ Little Green Footballs for this story.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer is tracking Barack Obama's ties to ACORN, and they have made an interesting discovery: information once available on this particular issue seem to be disappearing down the memory hole. From the Plain Dealer story:

On Thursday we revealed the connection between Barack Obama and Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), and uncovered a 2004 article that discussed his involvement with the organization which had recently been removed from the web. Today, the cover-ups continue and language on Obama's fightthesmears.com website has been altered in order to make it look like he has been telling the truth about his ACORN associations all along.

Fortunately, we and many others online know how to do a screen capture and how to use a little something called Google Cache.

As of yesterday, Fightthesmears.com stated:

Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.

Sometime on Friday, the website was altered, and the text was changed to state:

Fact: ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.

The mere fact that his campaign has now changed the language of the site shows that they have conceded the fact that their original remark was a bold-face lie. As a lawyer Sen. Obama should know the importance of language.

The original statement implied that he had no working connection with ACORN, whereas the new statement now insists that he has never been employed or hired by ACORN.

It is good to see the truth finally come out now, but why were they trying to hide his association with ACORN, and what else is Obama lying to us about? Perhaps the biggest question now is how and why they got the Social Policy article stricken from most of the world wide web in the first.place. What are they trying to hide?

We can only posit the idea that the Obama campaign is trying to hide any and all association with this group which is under investigation in: Ohio, Las Vegas, Missouri, Michigan, and a few other states and cities where it has been discovered that they are, in fact, engaging in registration fraud. Thomas posted on a story this past week about a man approached by ACORN workers, and filled out 72 registration cards for money and cigarettes.

Barack Obama is, indeed, tied to ACORN, and likely covertly endorses their registration methods, and the steps they take to intimidate voters. It comes down to exactly what Thomas posted as the title to his piece: "If it's not close, they can't cheat." ACORN and Obama campaign supporters are going to pull out all the stops to make this election as close as it possibly can. Why? So they can bring litigation into the courts to contest the results, and steal this election. Barack Obama is not the candidate of hope and change. He does not stand for reform. He sides with the status quo, and is more than willing to utilize Chicago-style political shenanigans to win this election, no matter the cost.
