Take action now:

ACORN

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now ("ACORN"), a far-left organization that engages in "direct action" such as (illegal) squatting campaigns and which is linked to Barack Obama. Their employees have frequently engaged in voting registration fraud, with hacks trying to claim that ACORN is itself as much a victim of that fraud as everyone else. During 2008, the Obama campaign hired them to do work in Ohio, and they also did GOTV efforts which redounded greatly to Obama's benefit. Obama initially denied on his website that he'd been an ACORN trainer, and then silently changed the site after the truth came out. They also support illegal immigration, even joining with Citibank to give home loans to illegal aliens.

DOJ blocks Georgia from checking citizenship of voters; GA has evidence of non-citizen voting - 06/02/09

... activist organizations such as ACORN to register non-citizens to vote in Georgia’s elections, and the state has no ability to verify an applicant’s citizenship status or whether the individual even exists. DOJ completely disregarded Georgia’s obvious and direct interest in preventing non-citizens from voting, instead siding with the ACLU and MALDEF. Clearly, politics took priority over common...

ACORN denies knowledge of "tea parties". Ergo, they must be planning to sabotage them - 04/08/09

... any evidence whatsoever that ACORN was planning on infiltrating and sabotaging the tea parties. This rumor has now spread to Neil Cavuto on Fox News; they might have actual sources, or they might have just been relying on the original unsubstantiated claim.

ACORN doesn't need to sabotage the tea parties, they're doing a bang-up job on their own - 04/06/09

... of the tea parties - is that ACORN is trying to sabotage the "parties" [1]. There's certainly the possibility that they might be doing that, but they don't need to for at least a couple reasons: 1. The partiers are already doing a great job marginalizing and discrediting themselves on their own, and 2. The "parties" are a great way to keep Obama's opponents occupied doing something completely...

Another possibility is that it was planted, in case of divorce (link). UPDATE: Since precision...
