Cash for Chicago Cronies: Federal Census grant $ for radical Woods Fund

Andrew Marcus at Founding Bloggers points out that federal slush fund money is going to Barack Obama’s old pals at the Woods Fund in Chicago:

Illinois is receiving copious amounts of federal tax payer dollars to “boost awareness” for the upcoming census.

How are they planning on boosting awareness? By handing out millions of dollars to Obama-Progressive friendly groups.

A push to reverse low census participation in Illinois will soon be coming via barber, baby-sitter, tax preparer, librarian and even iTunes download, part of a first-of-its-kind collaboration by local charities.

The “Count Me In” project on Wednesday will announce $1.2 million in grants to 26 groups for census outreach in 37 traditionally undercounted Chicago neighborhoods and cities around Illinois.

The name of one recipient in particular jumps off the page….The Woods Fund.

The Woods Fund was home to jihadi apologist Rashid Khalidi, Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, and Barack Obama — who served on the Board of Directors at a time when the foundation was making grants to ACORN and Jeremiah Wright’s church.

You can take Obama out of Chicago, but you can’t take the Chicago out of Obama.
