    The Annenberg Challenge and the Woods Fund of Chicago funded numerous controversial groups while Barack Obama served on their boards between 1995 and 2002, an analysis of their tax returns shows.

    Woods Fund:

    $75,000 to ACORN

    $60,000 to the Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University, which was founded and run by Bernardine Dohrn, the wife of domestic terrorist William Ayers.

    $50,000 to the Small Schools Network founded by Ayers and run by Michael Klonsky, a friend of Ayers' and the former chairman of the Communist Party

    $40,000 to the Arab American Action Network, which critics have accused of being anti-Semitic.

    Chicago Annenberg Challenge:

    Partnered with ACORN to manage funding for schools and giving over $1 million to the Small Schools Network.

    And in other news, God created the Earth.

    Oh, by the way, Annenberg was a Jew and an ambassador appointed by Reagan.
