Uncovered 2008 video: Obama boasts "We are going to paint the nation purple with SEIU"

When the ACORN controversy first heated up last fall, the Barack Obama campaign claimed that the candidate never organized for ACORN. Of course that was a lie, Obama was a trainer for ACORN's Project VOTE in 1992.

ACORN founded SEIU Local 880, and it still lists the tainted group as "Our sister organization and close ally."

Watch as Obama boasts, "SEIU Local 880 and myself, we organized people."

He goes on, "That's how we built political power on the South Side of Chicago."

And finally, "We are going to paint the nation purple with SEIU."
