The reality is Anita MonCrief is a thief, who lacks credibility who worked in the mailroom. On her blog she previously admitted to charging nearly $1,500 in personal charges on a Project Vote company credit card because she was a poor single mother; after which Project Vote promptly terminated her for cause. So by her own admissions Anita MonCrief is at best a troubled witness to her own crimes, and at worse a liar and a thief since her "advocacy" only started after she was fired.

Over the last year Anita MonCrief's relationship with Marcel Reid / ACORN 8 disintegrated into the present state. In the beginning, we supported her as a young women and her desire to engage in individual advocacy, although she was never a member of the ACORN 8. Anita MonCrief was staff; an employee of Project Vote and thus was never eligible to become a member of the ACORN 8, which is comprised exclusively of ACORN leaders and members not staff.

However, we encouraged her to work with Greg Hall; since he was building an organization of 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 strategy and campaign. We focus on the admitted embezzlement, criminality and corruption in ACORN. We simply sought 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.

Other's have sought to "coax" us to use our credibility to further their advocacy objectives i.e., Voter Fraud, Project Vote or Barack 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 conservative 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 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.

We have ignored previous slights and remarks against us, with one exception, 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 the 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 Barack Obama. However as other ACORN critics and advocates emerged; Anita MonCrief and her blogger cohorts MGM (MonCrief, Gaynor and Malkin) began attacking other activists instead of ACORN. The list of the individuals and activists MGM has disparaged include:

Marcel Reid a former ACORN Board member (DC) who blew the whistle following the $1 Million Embezzlement and co-founder of ACORN 8;

Karen Inman a former ACORN Board member (MN) who blew the whistle following the $1 Million Embezzlement and co-founder of ACORN 8;

Michael McCray a former ACORN Board delegate (GA) who blew the whistle following the $1 Million Embezzlement and ACORN 8 spokesperson;

ACORN 8 A non-profit membership organization consisting of former ACORN leaders and members following the $1 Million Embezzlement;
