Even Factcheck.org Whitewash.org Has to Admit Obama Lied His A.S.S. off on ACORN Last Night

From last night's debate:

Obama: The only involvement I've had with ACORN is, I represented them alongside the U.S. Justice Department in making Illinois implement a motor voter law that helped people get registered at DMVs.
Factcheck.org response:
He did, but that wasn't his only involvement. He also worked closely with ACORN's Chicago office when he ran a Project Vote registration drive after law school, and Obama did some leadership training for Chicago ACORN. The Woods Fund, where Obama served as a board member, gave grants to ACORN's Chicago branch; both organizations are concerned with disadvantaged populations in that city. And during the primaries of this election, Obama's campaign paid upwards of $800,000 to the ACORN-affiliated Campaign Services Inc. for get-out-the-vote efforts (not voter registration). Those services were initially misrepresented on the campaign's Federal Election Commission reports, an error that some find suspicious and others say is par for the course. ACORN's Chicago office and CSI have not been under investigation.
Unsurprisingly, Obama also, once again, blatantly lied about his relationship with Bill Ayers and his vote on the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, both of which, sadly but predictably, went completely unmentioned by Factcheck.org Whitewash.org.
