ACORN Housing also helped to inflate the mortgage bubble. It bragged in a 1999 pamphlet that it had strong-armed banks into accepting food stamps and welfare as income on home loan applications.
Will AHCOA reemerge in another form? We’ll see soon.
New ACORN groups have popped up all over America. These groups were created after ACORN Inc. filed for bankruptcy. Some were formed in anticipation of the bankruptcy.
ACORN’s state-level chapters have incorporated as new nonprofit corporations. These new organizations are controlled by ACORN personnel.
The new groups that have surfaced so far are: Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA – lucha is Spanish for fight); Arkansas Community Organizations; Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE); Home Defenders League (which is a project of ACCE); New England United for Justice (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island); Delawareans for Social and Economic Justice; Communities United (Maryland, District of Columbia); Communities United Training and Education Fund (Maryland, District of Columbia); Organize Now (Florida); A Community Voice (Louisiana); Alliance Institute (Louisiana); Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change; Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment; Communities United New Jersey; Organizers in the Land of Enchantment (OLÉ – New Mexico); The Black Institute (New York); New York Communities for Change; New York Communities Organizing Fund; Action NC (North Carolina); Pennsylvania Neighborhoods for Social Justice; Action United (corporate name: Pennsylvania Communities Organizing for Change); Texas Organizing Project; Texas Organizing Project Education Fund; and Organization United for Reform Washington (OUR Washington).
ACORN International (known in the U.S. as Community Organizations International)operates around the world, spreading the gospel of so-called social justice. The nonprofit group, which is headed by ACORN founder Wade Rathke, has affiliates in Argentina,Canada, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Honduras, India, Italy, Kenya, Mexico,Peru, and South Korea.
And don’t forget Project Vote, the branch of ACORN that Barack Obama worked for in 1992 when he ran a successful get-out-the-vote drive that helped to elect the radical leftist Carol Moseley Braun as Democratic senator from Illinois. Marxist academic and activist Frances Fox Piven is on Project Vote’s board of directors.
Project Vote and other so-called civil rights groups are working with Eric Holder’s Justice Department to undermine electoral integrity. The federal agency has filed numerous lawsuits attempting to block voter ID laws and to prevent illegal immigrants and the dead from being removed from voter rolls.
Project Vote’s official position is that voter fraud is a myth invented by Republicans to disenfranchise Democratic voters. The group vilifies as a racist anyone who thinks voter ID requirements are a good idea and constantly presses to make voting requirements in general even more lax than they now are.
And although Project Vote officials won’t admit it, the tax-exempt group’s number one priority this year is reelecting President Obama.
