The Soros-Obama Connection

• Views: 8,315

Adding to Stanley Kurtz’s article on Barack Obama’s long-term association with the far-left group ACORN, an Investor’s Business Daily profile makes another connection, to the guy whose money finances so many of these groups: George Soros: The Man, The Mind And The Money Behind MoveOn.

Soros’ efforts go beyond spin. He has also bankrolled groups involved in the manipulation of elections, an activity that has increased since his money came into the picture. Two groups — Americans Coming Together and the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — were sanctioned recently by the Federal Election Commission for fraud.

Soros pledged $10 million to ACT, which has since been fined $775,000 for illegally funneling $70 million set aside for voter registrations to Democratic candidates.

He also gave at least $150,000 to ACORN, the left-wing group best known for pushing minimum-wage hikes, marching for illegal-immigrant amnesty and harassing Wal-Mart. ACORN has been accused of voter fraud in 13 states since 2004 and was convicted of falsifying signatures in a voter registration drive last July, drawing a fine of $25,000 in Washington state.

Soros says he has ended funding to voter-drive organizations, but he still heads a secretive rich-man’s club called “Democracy Alliance” that has doled out $20 million to activist groups like ACORN.

You don’t have to play six degrees of Soros to get to Barack Obama, though. Here’s a photo of Obama at a fundraiser at the New York residence of Steven and Judy Gluckstern in April 2007—and sitting next to him, in the blue shirt, is none other than George Soros.

George Soros first showed up at LGF in November 2003, when he compared President Bush to Adolf Hitler: Soros: Bush = Hitler.

Now he’s a presidential candidate’s left hand man.
