A lawyer involved with legal action against Association of Community
Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) told a House Judiciary subcommittee

have shown a close link between ACORN, Project Vote and the Obama campaign
because it would have been a “a game changer.”

Heather Heidelbaugh, who represented the Pennsylvania Republican State
Committee in the lawsuit against the group, recounted for the ommittee what
she had been told by a former ACORN worker who had worked in the group’s
Washington, D.C. office. The former worker, Anita Moncrief, told Ms.
Heidelbaugh last October, during the state committee’s litigation against
ACORN, she had been a “confidential informant for several months to The New
York Times reporter, Stephanie Strom.”
