Newly created ACORN front groups across America have signed on to an economic campaign led by the radical Service Employees International Union that award-winning investigative journalist Matthew Vadum compares to terrorism.
Wall Street titan JPMorgan Chase is the first target of SEIU and its longtime allies at ACORN, he reports. Other pressure groups are participating in the effort, including the Saul Alinsky-founded Industrial Areas Foundation, National People’s Action, PICO National Network, and Alliance for a Just Society, according to a left-wing website established for the campaign, ChaseHomeFinanceSux.com.
ACORN, long associated with President Obama, is participating in the disruptive effort through its newly renamed state chapters. Mortgage and student loan strikes, crippling bank boycotts and intimidation, are on the agenda, Vadum told WND.
Although ACORN, the Brooklyn-based shell corporation that runs the ACORN network, filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy on Election Day 2010, its state chapters have restructured under assumed names. ACORN Housing changed its name to Affordable Housing Centers of America while ACORN’s voter registration and voter mobilization arm Project Vote continues operating out of ACORN’s old Washington, D.C., office.
Vadum reported the emergence of the “new” ACORN groups in his new book, “Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers.” A senior editor at Capital Research Center, a think tank that studies left-wing advocacy groups and their funders, Vadum has assembled the information in the book from nearly three years of research and hundreds of interviews.
