Follow the Money: ACORN, SEIU and their Political Allies,” the report presents information gleaned from committee investigations into hundreds of bank accounts, shell organizations incorporated under myriad sections of the internal revenue code, even an ACORN-directed accounting firm, Citizens Consulting Inc., charged with obscuring the trail and use of funding streams pouring into ACORN from taxpayers and charitable contributions alike.

  • 1. ACORN and SEIU entered into illegal agreements that constitute a criminal conspiracy.

    Investigators found that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis, Executive Director Steven Kest, and Political Operations Director Zach Polett have actual or apparent authority over ACORN’s activities and then identified a pattern of alleged criminal acts.

    2. ACORN and SEIU are substantially intertwined using a “Muscle for the Money” component

    According to the new report, a combination of electioneering, intimidation and threats of litigation have been refined into an art form to force private corporations and government officials alike into deals and political compromises at the expense of taxpayers.

  • Documents produced new revelations including:

    * receipt by ACORN of $5,609,338.00 dollars from the Service Employees International Union, the same union that used violence to intimidate townhall activists protesting Obamacare last summer;
    * Florida state senator Anthony Hill was simultaneously employed by SEIU and ACORN; Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), former Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-Ill.), and Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) have received the support of SEIU’s ACORN affiliates.

  • 3. ACORN, as a corporation, is responsible for submitting thousands of fraudulent U.S. voter registrations

    Examinations of documentation from state election offices reveals late filing dumps of volumes of fraudulent voter registration cards the report found were intended to overwhelm the system in an effort compromise free and fair elections promised in the Constitution of the United States.

    4. ACORN contributed to the risky sub-prime lending that led to the U.S. housing bubble financial collapse.
    The report also reveals how taxpayer money is still being channeled to ACORN despite the passage of legislation to end taxpayer support

  • His association with ACORN is one of the things used in the Articles of Impeachment that have been written up against him. If they ever make it to Congress I expect a criminal indictment will follow. He is up to his eyeballs in criminal activity.

    Don't ask for links...research it yourself or wait and see what comes down the pike.

  • I heard he talking about this today. Not surprising thought. I'm glad someone is still investigating the crooks. If Acorn is as bad as has been proven you can bet SEIU is just as bad. I'm glad it's coming to light. Bout time the truth came out.

  • Let's take it one step further. The most frequent visitor to the White House is Andy Stern ( I believe that is his name) THis is according to the WHite House website and the President's selective transparency. The gentleman I am referring to is the president of the SEIU. So our President is in bed with the union. Not a huge revelation I know but if the SEIU is a corrupt organization and our President's affiliation is so strong should we be worried about corruption in the White House?

  • Being a faithful watcher of a certain person on a certain news network, this was all spelled out quite clearly some time ago. This was also pretty clear during the campaign. Did O work for anyone besides Acorn? (I never heard of any other employer...) And isn't Stern one of his BFF's? Can we say corruption? Well, there ya go, that's all you need to know.
