If you’re wondering who Robert Creamer is, we wrote about him back in 2010. He’s the guy at the center of a major voter fraud scheme uncovered by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas. The undercover video has forced Creamer and his crony, Scott Foval to resign from their respective Democratic campaign organizations.
Here’s some background on Robert Creamer, on January 27, 2010 Dick Young wrote:
Where do President Obama and the Radical Progressive Movement (RPM) go from here? Well, over the weekend I reread E.J. Smith’s excellent series on the inside, non-vetted group of radical czars who advise our president. And I went through the work of Obamasphere folk Cass Sunstein and Robert Creamer. (Preliminary work for the Creamer travesty Stand Up Straight was done in the joint—yup, the Terra Haute Indiana lock up.) I thought it was a nice touch for Robert to thank his colleagues at the slammer for their support. Creamer’s progressive manifesto is all about how progressives can win. His “Priorities for Action” chapter kicks off on page number 577 of Stand Up Straight. Mr. Creamer writes that “a long-term realignment requires both a sustainable electoral majority and the reframing of American political dialogue.” Creamer outlines 18 priorities for progressives. Number 5 on the Creamer list is “We need to remember that people vote for people not ideas, or issues.” I agree, and conservatives should stamp this thought on their refrigerators. Number 6 says that resources must be focused on building lasting, mass-based organizations for campaigns. Lovely outfits like MoveOn.org, USAction, and Americans United for Change are cited as models. And the campaign to stop privatization of social security is cited as the model showing how it can be done. In priority action #8, Mr. Creamer talks about the battle over the distribution of income (yours, of course—after all, Robert wasn’t going to be able to distribute a lot from his slammer remuneration, now was he?). Also in #8, Creamer writes about supporting the unionization of the workforce and promoting control of government at all levels in the U.S. In #10, Creamer writes, “polls show popular support for universal health care at massive levels.” I don’t think so, Robert, but OK. Creamer tells his progressive mavens that “The [health-care] proposal should be clear and elegant.” Oops, I think Reid and Pelosi missed this one. I doubt that even Creamer had a Cornhusker Kickback and 2000-plus-page monstrosity on his mind.
