Biden: "We've not paid them [ACORN] one single penny"

Obama 2008, Politics, Truth, Voter fraud

An interview of Sen. Joe Biden by Barbara West at Florida's WFTV caused quite a stir over the weekend. She asked several very blunt questions about ACORN, the international crisis Biden forecasted if Obama was elected, and is Obama a Marxist? HotAir dubbed West's interview,  Comedy gold: WFTV interviews Biden: (Video link included)

Barbara West began the interview with,

...But aren't you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past? 

Without missing a beat, Biden replies, (My emphasis)

I am not embarrassed by it. We are not tied to it. We have not paid them [ACORN] one single penny to register a single solitary voter. We have the best get out the vote operation in modern American history. We register the voters ourselves and so there is no relationship... ...I am not embarrassed by our operation...

Maybe he did not read the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Obama to amend report on $800,000 in spending?

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now [ACORN] for services the Democrat's campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. -- a subsidiary of ACORN -- worked in "get-out-the-vote" projects...

Sen. Joe Biden's denial, "We've not paid them one single penny" reminded me of Pres. Clinton's denial, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." I guess when you are used to denying the truth, you do it with ease.

OK, Obama's campaign hasn't paid ACORN a single penny, but how about 80,000,000 of them! (80,000,000 pennies = $80,000)

Watch the interview. It prompted the ire of the Obama campaign enough to cancel a scheduled interview with Mrs. Biden. Interviews from Barack Obama's past where he states very Marxist ideals are bubbling up to the surface too. As for Biden being proud of his own get out the vote operation, there is a new development there too.  Stay tuned.
