Former ACORN Staffer Testifies that Obama Bankrolled ACORN, ACORN Lacked Quality Control
In a case involving voter registration fraud, Anita MonCrief, a former ACORN staffer, testified in a Pennsylvania Circuit court that the group's quality-control efforts were "minimal or nonexistent" in deterring fradulent registrations and called the quality control policies of ACORN "largely window dressing." MonCrief also said during her testimony that ACORN was given lists of potential donors by several Democratic presidential campaigns, including that of Barack Obama, to troll for contributions in funding their voter registration efforts. During MonCrief's testimony, MonCrief further explained in November of 2007, ACORN's Project Vote development director Karyn Gillette told her she had direct contact with the Obama campaign and had obtained their donor lists. Ms. MonCrief also testified she was given a spreadsheet to use in cultivating Obama donors who had maxed out on donations to the candidate, but who could contribute to voter registration efforts. Project Vote calls the allegation "absolutely false." .
