Bertha Lewis, the CEO of ACORN has the office, cell phone, home number and private personal email address of Patrick Gaspard, the man who holds the same position in the Obama administration as Karl Rove in the Bush administration. In addition to Patrick, Bertha has his brother, Michael Gaspard, who works for the Advance Group, ACORN's lobbying organization.
Patrick Gaspard was the Executive Vice President for the SEIU until Obama asked Gaspard to become his Presidential Campaign's National Political Director. Once in the White House, Gaspard became Obama's Director of the Office of Political Affairs.
Gaspard's official responsibility is to provide the president with an accurate assessment of the political dynamics affecting the work of his administration, and to remain in close contact with power brokers around the country to help push the president's agenda. He is the man who told New York Governor David Paterson not to run for re-election and then Obama's 'people' leaked it to the press.
Brother Michael Gaspard is a lobbyist, who works for The Advance Group. The filings in the State of New York shows it represents several organizations that fight for social justice, minority rights, etc. It also represents the New York Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now, or ACORN. Although the name is New York ACORN, the registered address is New Orleans, LA. The ACORN.
On Sunday, 09.20.09 Obama played ignorant of ACORN's investigation when he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos, "Frankly, it's not really something I've followed closely. I didn't even know that ACORN was getting a whole lot of federal money. Did he forget that he used to work for them? Did he forget that his campaign gave them $800,000?
