As part of our ongoing look at the coordinated corruption between ACORN, Project Vote, and the Obama campaign, here’s another internal email between staffers discussing how to use the Obama donor list — and an April 2008 New York Times piece on Florida voter registration laws — to drum up more money and bodies for the Obama-promoting network:

Remember: Project Vote is a 501(c)(3) barred by law from engaging in political campaigning.

Background on the players: Nathan Henderson-James was the research director of Project Vote who served simultaneously as ACORN’s political strategist. He currently works on online campaigns at ACORN and was director of the “Strategic Writing and Research Department (SWORD)” at ACORN non-profit affiliate Citizens’ Services Inc (that’s the same outfit that the Obama campaign paid $800,000 to last year and failed to report to the FEC.) Karyn Gillette was the Ohio-based national Project Vote development director who also served as campaign consultant to the A CORN-friendly Democrat secretary of state in Ohio, Jennifer Brunner. Michael Slater was the deputy director of Project Vote who had served as an organizing team leader for District 1199 SEIU and as executive director of Minnesota ACORN. He’s currently executive director of Project Vote. Michael McDunnah is PV’s communications director.

Aside: Wonder who gave them the advance notice on the NYTimes piece, which appeared on April 28, 2008? How courteous. But remember the immortal words of NYTimes editor in chief Bill Keller:

…we are agnostic as to where a story may lead; we do not go into a story with an agenda or a pre-conceived notion. We do not manipulate or hide facts to advance an agenda. We strive to preserve our independence from political and economic interests, including our own advertisers. We do not work in the service of a party, or an industry, or even a country. When there are competing views of a situation, we aim to reflect them as clearly and fairly as we can.”

More to come…
