Confirmed: Obama Was Member of Radical Socialist 'New Party'

This won't make a dent with the Kool-Aid drinkers and in fact will probably just boost the empty suit's street cred with the hard left. But since the Democrats and their surrogates want to persist on dredging up the Sarah Palin/AIP nonstory, well, then we can play their game.
In June sources released information that during his campaign for the State Senate in Illinois, Barack Obama was endorsed by an organization known as the Chicago "New Party". The 'New Party' was a political party established by the Democratic Socialists of America (the DSA) to push forth the socialist principles of the DSA by focusing on winnable elections at a local level and spreading the Socialist movement upwards. The admittedly Socialist Organization experienced a moderate rise in numbers between 1995 and 1999. By 1999, however, the Socialist 'New Party' was essentially defunct after losing a supreme court challenge that ruled the organizations "fusion" reform platform as unconstitutional.
The Obama folks are good at scrubbing damaging web pages from their site and intimidating people in order to try and prevent damaging information from being aired, but they apparently weren't able to completely cleanse the web of links to this radical Chicago outfit.
New Party members and supported candidates won 16 of 23 races, including an at-large race for the Little Rock, Ark., City Council, a seat on the county board for Little Rock and the school board for Prince George's County, Md. Chicago is sending the first New Party member to Congress, as Danny Davis, who ran as a Democrat, won an overwhelming 85% victory. New Party member Barack Obama was uncontested for a State Senate seat from Chicago.
Priot to that they noted Obama here.
Illinois: Three NP-members won Democratic primaries last Spring and face off against Republican opponents on election day: Danny Davis (U.S. House), Barack Obama (State Senate) and Patricia Martin (Cook County Judiciary).
Curious also is Obama's strong suit, according to this item, which happens to be voter registration. Hmm, some ACORN links, anyone?
Barack Obama, victor in the 13th State Senate District, encouraged NPers to join in his task forces on Voter Education and Voter Registration.
So we now know Obama belonged to an openly Socialist party. Now, will he claim this defunct organization was lying by claiming him as a member?

DBKP has more. Gateway Pundit has another source on this as well.

Update: I see this has made it up the blog foodchain.

Good. Like I said earlier, it'll be ignored, but it's better to start piecing together Obama's radical ties a bit more so we can say we told them so later.

And we will.
