ACORN Scrubs Its Website to Eliminate SEIU Links

ACORN may have been trying to cover up which organizations are part of ACORN by scrubbing its website. Not only did ACORN and SEIU share board members, but until a month ago they appeared to share the same headquarters address in New Orleans: 1024 Elysian Fields Ave. This is, of course, the same address from which Barack Obama received his first out-of-state donation (from the SEIU Local 880 Political Fund) back in November 1995 (with the exception of what appears to be a September 1995 donation from his college roommate or his family in New York).

When the latest ACORN scandals broke a few weeks ago, I went to its national site and downloaded ACORN’s list of Louisiana-based organizations. That list has now disappeared from that site (but might still be viewable in this cache, and I also retained screen grabs).

In early September, this was the list of ACORN organizations located in Louisiana as presented on ACORN’s own national website:
