In total goose-step with Obama, ACORN who receives all of its funding from Democrats through the abuses of our tax dollars, released this absurd press release. This is another try to deflect from the real issues of voter fraud and pushing home loans for those that could not afford it. Just check with the bank managers who they protested in front of their homes what the truth is. We hear how the squeaky wheel gets the grease. In this case the grease is gold plated with our tax dollars.
ACORN Response to Senator McCain’s Smear Ad
WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — ACORN President Maude Hurd released the following statement today in response to the McCain campaign’s new ad claiming that, among other things, ACORN is responsible for the mortgage crisis:
“For almost a decade, ACORN, a community organization of 400,000 families in neighborhoods across the country, has been fighting against the predatory lending practices that have robbed our members of their homes, destabilized neighborhoods, and roiled the global economy.”
“In his newest ad, John McCain’s campaign bizarrely claims, “ACORN forced banks to issue risky home loans, the same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we’re in today.” Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, ACORN has worked successfully to help working class families get good home loans on fair terms from legitimate banks and has fought vigorously against predatory lenders who have ripped off families in our communities. These predatory loans caused the crisis.”
