President Barack Obama was a member of the far left New Party and also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office, according to a published report.

Citing recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society, an article appearing in the National Review Online pointed to a document trail that “definitively establishes” Obama’s membership in the organization.

“Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party.

Urgent: Obama Must Be Seething at This Success

He also joined the New Party,” the publication reported, quoting minutes of a Jan. 11, 1996 meeting of the New Party’s Chicago chapter.

Moreover, the publication reported that a roster of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from early 1997 listed Obama as a member and referenced the Jan. 11, 1996 joining date.

The publication also noted that in Obama’s third debate with then GOP presidential nominee John McCain, the Democrat maintained that his only involvement with ACORN came when he represented the group in a lawsuit over the National Voter Registration Act.
