The ACORN ad

ANNCR: Who is Barack Obama? A man with “a political baptism performed at warp speed.” Vast ambition.

After college, he moved to Chicago. Became a community organizer. There, Obama met Madeleine Talbot, part of the Chicago branch of ACORN. He was so impressive that he was asked to train the ACORN staff.

What did ACORN in Chicago engage in? Bullying banks. Intimidation tactics. Disruption of business. ACORN forced banks to issue risky home loans. The same types of loans that caused the financial crisis we’re in today.

No wonder Obama’s campaign is trying to distance him from the group, saying, “Barack Obama Never Organized with ACORN.” But Obama’s ties to ACORN run long and deep. He taught classes for ACORN. They even endorsed him for President.

But now ACORN is in trouble.

REPORTER: There are at least 11 investigations across the country involving thousands of potentially fraudulent ACORN forms.

ANNCR: Massive voter fraud. And the Obama campaign paid more than $800,000 to an ACORN front for get out the vote efforts.

Pressuring banks to issue risky loans. Nationwide voter fraud.

Barack Obama. Bad judgment. Blind ambition. Too risky for America.

You would think a party that is so convinced that the 2000 election was “stolen” would be more concerned with massive voter fraud. Of course, it probably is too much to ask for some sort of consistency from Barack Obama and the Democratic Party

    Ok. Now let’s talk. I can tell you WHO not only force banks to issue risky home loans, but lies on loan documents to underwriters as well.
    ***** IT’S MORTGAGE COMPANIES!!!******

    How do I know? I am a recent victim of a loan processor inflating closing cost numbers, just for a bank to approve my house loan. THE LOAN PROCESSOR RECENTLY GOT FIRED, B/C THE MTG. COMPANY FOUND OUT I WASN’T THE ONLY VICTIM!

    I WAS THE ONE THAT WAS HONEST ABOUT MY ASSETS AND INCOME! I’M BEING HONEST, BUT NO HONESTY IS BEING GIVEN TO ME!

    THE LOAN PROCESSOR LIED, SAYING I COULD COME UP WITH $5000.00 FOR CLOSING COST, WHICH IS THE ONLY REASON WHY THE BANK LOOKED AT MY FILE.

    I am so ticked! I knew something was wrong, when my broker kept asking me to ask some of my relatives for a gift letter showing them giving ME AT LEAST $4000.00. NO ONE IN MY FAMILY HAS THAT KIND OF MONEY, but I NOW see why and how the real-estate industry is financially messed up. MANY mtg. brokers perform a the “GET THE MONEY SOMEWAY, SOMEHOW OR YOU’LL LOSE YOUR EARNEST MONEY!”

    THIS IS WHAT ACORN IS FIGHTING AGAINST!

    My main point is: Don’t send low-income people off by telling them they’re approved to get a house, show low closing house numbers in the beginning and then turn around near closing time to make deals with bank to raise the closing cost amount on low-income consumers. THAT’S WRONG! I’D RATHER BEEN DENIED IN THE BEGINNING, THAN TO BE PUT ON BY THE MTG. CO. THAT I’M GOING TO GET APPROVED BY THE BANK, ME NOT KNOWING THE MTG. CO LIED TO THE BANK! IT’S LIKE PUTTING A CARROT IN FRONT OF A HORSE!

    WHO DO I, AS THE CONSUMER MAKE AN OFFICAL COMPLAINT TO ABOUT THIS ISSUE GOING ON? WHO PROTECTS THE LOW-INCOME CONSUMER FROM BEING PRESSURED INTO A HOUSE LOAN?

    I WISHED I HAD FOUND OUT ACORN BEFORE DOING THIS SO CALLED HOUSE LOAN PROCESS! I’VE ALREADY GIVEN MY LANDLORD A 30 DAY NOTICE!

    WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?

    *******ACORN Issue campaigns: eliminate predatory financial practices by mortgage lenders, payday lenders, and tax preparation companies; win the development of affordable housing and community benefits agreements*******
