According to a HISTORY of the SIEU written by Kieth Kelleher, the Head Organizer of the Local 880 of the SIEU, this local SIEU, which helped Obama get into office at the State level and then for his Senate race,  is in fact an outgrowth of ACORN. The PDF report is here, however I have saved it in case it disappears. http://www.justlabour.yorku.ca/volume12/pdfs/01_kelleher_press.pdf

This is a DIRECT link between the SEIU and ACORN, which is documented further in this article, and the two organizations shared an office in Chicago, where President Obama, as an “organizer” worked with the Local 880, with Wade Rafke as its treasurer, when he came to Chicago in 1995.

The SEIU endorsed President Obama and he spoke very fondly, and specifically, of his ties to this ACORN “offshoot”:

Obama describes what he did as a community organizer:
When I was a young organizer, I had just moved to Chicago. I started with working with SEIU Local 880, home health care workers, to make sure that they were registered to vote. I had a say in the politics in Illinois. When I went to the state legislature, I worked with Tom Balanoff in SEIU to make sure that children who didn’t have health care received it. And we made sure that hospitals report on the quality of care, the staffing ratios that they had set up, and now we’re working together at the federal level to make sure that all Americans, not just some Americans, are allowed to prosper.

Obama ties to SEIU and Acorn Deepen- Did he also help trigger the mortgage collapse?-  Bill Collier- An American Freedomist

Working out of SEIU office, 880, at the time shared by Acorn, with Wade Rathke as the acting treasurer, Barack Hussein Obama joined with a group of lawyers in an attempt to shake down Citibank.

According to public records, plaintiffs filed their class action lawsuit on July 6, 1994, alleging that Citibank had engaged in redlining practices in the Chicago metropolitan area in violation of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), 15 U.S.C. 1691; the Fair Housing Act, 42 U.S.C. 3601-3619; the Thirteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and 42 U.S.C. 1981, 1982. Plaintiffs alleged that the defendant-bank rejected loan applications of minority applicants while approving loan applications filed by white applicants with similar financial characteristics and credit histories. Plaintiffs sought injunctive relief, actual damages, and punitive damages.

This case has received a good deal of press and blogger attention because one of the plaintiffs’ lawyers was Barack Obama, then just a couple of years out of law school.

U.S. District Court Judge Ruben Castillo certified the plaintiffs’ suit as a class action on June 30, 1995. Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 162 F.R.D. 322 (N.D. Ill. 1995). Also on June 30, Judge Castillo granted Plaintiffs’ motion to compel discovery of a sample of Defendant-bank’s loan application files. Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 162 F.R.D. 338 (N.D. Ill. 1995).

The parties settled the case on May 12, 1998, with an agreement that provided for waiver of some fees for class members, should they reapply for a loan, and also for various procedures to ensure that Citibank followed its own loan policies in a race neutral way.  They count on corporations settling rather than facing lengthy litigation.

Here are the lawyers listed in the legal briefs, including Barack Hussein Obama:

Citibank was forced to pay the lawyers, including Barack Hussein Obama, $950,000 plus they were forced to loosen loan requirements which led directly to the mortgage crisis.  This was part of the strategy to overwhelm the system, to bankrupt the system in an attempt to create a crisis.

As part of his reward for being a loyal “purple solider”, Obama was supported by SEIU funds/manpower massively in PA according to the New York Times.

In 2007 Obama “rocked the house” at an SIEU events

:http://marcambinder.theatlantic.com/archives/2007/09/highly_caffeinated_and_unusual.php

According to the article, “SEIU’s members are temperamentally suited to Obama; he is a longtime friend of Chicago’s SEIU Local 880 and worked closely with the union as an organizer and later as a state legislator.”

Also the article include this:

“But the real key in passing universal health care is the ability to bring people together in a process that is open and transparent and builds real consensus, and I’ve got a track record of doing that.”

Obama implied that one of his opponents in the Democratic primary, John Edwards was a Johnny-come-lately.

“I’ve spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I’m not a newcomer to this,” Obama said. “I didn’t suddenly discover SEIU on the campaign trail. Oh, y’all organize. You wear purple, do you?” he said, referring to the spirit color the SEIU has chosen.

The article says that Obama was well known to have worked with Local SIEU 880 which has SHARED offices with ACORN in Chicago where, apparently, Obama worked in SOME capacity as an organizer.

SEIU Local 880 and ACORN in Chicago (at 650 S. Clark Street, Chicago). Additionally, the National ACORN Housing Corporation is located at this address.

In a 2005 report ACORN’s office noted that the SEIU, which shared its local office, was a “sister union.”

(I have saved the repot in case it is deleted)

According to NPR, SEIU was founded by now discredited ACORN founder Wade Rafke.http://theunionnews.blogspot.com/2008/10/npr-exposes-acorn-seiu-connection.html

In 2002 the People’s Weekly detailed how the Local 880 of the SEIU and ACORN worked closely together.http://www.pww.org/article/articleview/1539/

As it says in the article, “ACORN and SEIU work together throughout the nation, representing how progressive organizations can form alliances, to ensure our joint success.”
