Much like anyone associated with the Obama campaign, the more lies these people are caught in, the more pathetic their excuses become. Now this woman should have been laughed out of the political arena with the phony Indian story alone, but we’re dealing with Massachusetts here and apparently a good portion of the voter there do no care if their candidates are pathological liars.
So now that it’s been revealed this absurd woman’s daughter is in charge of trying to sign up half a million welfare recipients while working with former ACORN lowlifes, she’s actually denying what’s obvious to anyone with half a brain.
Elizabeth Warren scoffed at U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s charges that her daughter is leading a taxpayer-funded crusade to get welfare recipients out to vote for her mom, even as records show the Democrat scored thousands in campaign dough from the group’s bigwigs — including a former Boston Globe publisher.
“The organization that Amelia’s involved in was working on voter registration issues I believe before she ever joined,” Warren said. “And they were working in several different states, they’re working with other organizations and they were working with the commonwealth of Massachusetts before I ever became involved in the campaign.”
Demos — a liberal nonprofit chaired by Amelia Warren Tyagi — joined forces with a spinoff of the defunct, scandal-plagued ACORN in a legal bid last May to compel the state welfare department to send nearly half a million get-out-the-vote letters to welfare recipients, the Herald reported yesterday.
Republicans howled that the mailings, which went out last month, were a bid to boost Warren in her neck-and-neck race with Brown.
Brown said yesterday that the get-out-the-welfare vote campaign — which cost taxpayers more than $275,000 — “smells wrong and … is wrong.”
Typically, this far-left outfit passes itself off as non-partisan. Whenever you see that label, believe the opposite.
Demos, a tax-exempt nonprofit founded in 2000, bills itself as a nonpartisan think tank, but many of its board members and leaders have worked in Democratic political administrations, donated to Democratic campaigns or are affiliated with liberal organizations.
Demos claims President Obama as a founding board member and Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich as a former board member. It also partners with the magazine The American Prospect, which boasts on its website, “We’re liberal, progressive, lefty—call it what you want, we’re proud of it.”
The board’s membership has largely left-leaning affiliations and backgrounds. Current or recent Demos members include former Colorado Democratic Congressman David Skaggs, Obama’s former Green Jobs adviser Van Jones, former senior adviser to Obama Mark Alexander and former Boston Globe publisher Benjamin Taylor.
Van Jones. Enough said.
Despite Warren’s feigned indignation, part of this scheme is to register illegal aliens, such as Obama’s Auntie Zeituni, who we suspect has been voting for some time.
Demos, the moonbat organization of the fake Indian’s daughter, throws in with the remnants of the corrupt ACORN. They turn up a compliant plantiff with a mysterious past, and before there’s even any discovery in the lawsuit, the state waves the white flag.
And now the commonwealth spends $275,844 to spend out a mailing to almost a half-million layabouts that includes a letter and a mail-in registration form.
“Please note,” the letter says, “that DTA does not verify whether or not public assistance applicants or clients are currently registered to vote or eligible to register to vote.”
In other words, whether they’re illegal aliens. So the answer is yes, Auntie Zeituni, former welfare-collecting illegal, now “refugee,” is getting one of these letters of alarm from Patrick. So is every other illegal in the state. How convenient.
Is there a Democrat left in this country that isn’t trying to steal votes and rig elections?
