More on Carnahans’ Ties to ACORN

The Chicago Daily Observer writes about Missouri’s let-them-eat-cake gang:

The Missouri Republican Party’s Executive Director Lloyd Smith wrote of what they’ve uncovered in documents linking Secretary of State Carnahan to Missouri’s ACORN chapter:

What we found was shocking: at least 2,300 pages of correspondence that clearly detailed a close working relationship between the highest levels of Carnahan’s office and ACORN in Missouri.

These e-mails show the lengths Carnahan’s office went to accommodate the group. Top ACORN officials lauded her office for “having the ability to share information.” They asked “very quick research question(s),” which Carnahan’s staff was happy to provide. They said “we’ll do an event whenever Robin can make it to St. Louis, though book closing date is best.”

And it gets better … ACORN and Carnahan worked together to stop photo IDs being shown when voting.

Perhaps most shocking was an e-mail sent after the defeat of a common sense proposal, opposed by Carnahan, that would have required a photo identification to vote. ACORN congratulated Carnahan’s office and a host of liberal groups on “a great team effort.”

It’s no wonder ACORN called Carnahan “helpful” in a lawsuit that netted them $450,000 from Missouri taxpayers.

I can’t wait to see if a future James O’Keefe ACORN video includes anything from any Missouri offices.

This also makes sense as to why so many ACORN workers were present at Russ Carnahan’s summer rally for fauxcare.
