However, we encouraged her to work with Greg Hall/Truth To Power; since he was building an organization of former ACORN staff members and would have welcomed her with open arms. Unfortunately, Anita MonCrief refused our advice and pursued her own individual advocacy against ACORN and Project Vote.

Since our inception, the ACORN 8 has been very consistent and concise in our campaign strategy and message. We focus on the admitted embezzlement, criminality and corruption in ACORN. We simply seek Truth and Transparency within ACORN and Accountability for its corrupt leadership. We demanded a boycott of all federal funding, charitable donations and membership dues until after there was a forensic examination, independent audit and formal investigation of ACORN and its affiliates.

While others have waged a war of rhetoric and words against ACORN and President Obama; we have focused on criminality within the association. However, we have never denigrated any other activist's attempts at advocacy - but remained focused on our own. We have not criticized others for their activism and collaborate with those whom we share common interests; and we respectfully disengage from those who do not share our goals or approach.

Others have sought to "coax" us to use our credibility to further their advocacy objectives i.e., Voter Fraud, Project Vote or Barrack Obama; not ours. We are committed to rooting out ACORN Corruption we have never professed to be anti-ACORN or anti-Obama. Although many other activists want us to be; which brings us back to Anita MonCrief.

We have tried and tried to stay on message "Truth and Transparency" and focus on our target "ACORN Corruption" for nearly two years now. We have refrained from excessive rhetoric, needless distractions or baseless accusations to the chagrin of many conservative activists.

With one exception, we have ignored previous slights and remarks against us because we did not want to confuse our message or the real issue ACORN is our target not other activists. However, we will not stand idly by and allow ACORN 8 and our hard work to be "swift boated" by either ACORN or Anita MonCrief.

Anita MonCrief began her advocacy by purporting to expose illegal coordination between ACORN, Project Vote and President Barrack Obama. However as other ACORN whistleblowers and advocates emerged; Anita and her cohorts - MGM (MonCrief, Gaynor and Malkin) began attacking these activists instead of ACORN. The list of the individuals and activists MGM has disparaged include;
