Robert Creamer is an American political consultant, community organizer, and author. He is the husband of Jan Schakowsky, the Congressional Representative for Illinois's 9th congressional district. His firm, Democracy Partners, works with issue campaigns. He also leads the nonprofit group Americans United for Change.
In 2005, Creamer pleaded guilty to tax violations and $2.3 million in bank fraud in relation to paying checks with insufficient funds, to fund his public interest group in the 1990s.
While incarcerated [...] Creamer wrote a 628-page political manual titled Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (published in 2007). [...] Stand Up Straight! advanced the notion that the Democratic Party could win a permanent majority in Congress by doing the following: passing a national health care bill, thereby turning more people into wards of an ever-expanding government, and of the party that works to grow government; and giving amnesty to all illegal immigrants, thereby creating, virtually overnight, a large new constituency of Democratic voters.
Quote: "If the Democrats continue to stand firmly for immigrant rights, the issue will define immigrants’ voting loyalties for a generation. If we are successful, a gigantic block of progressive votes will enter the electorate over the next 15 years—a block that could be decisive in the battle for the future."
On November 24, 2009, Creamer attended a White House state dinner -- along with high-level Obama advisors like Andrew Stern and David Axelrod -- despite the fact that ex-convicts are usually barred from such events.
In October 2016, investigative journalist James O’Keefe’s “Project Veritas Action” (PVA) released a series of undercover, hidden-camera videos showing that Creamer was a leading orchestrator of an initiative where the Democratic Party and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign had been using trained provocateurs to instigate violence and chaos at Republican events nationwide – especially at rallies for then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence – throughout that year's election cycle. In one video clip, Creamer was shown emphasizing the importance of beginning these disruptions as soon as possible: “I’m not suggesting we wait around. We need to start this shit right away on every one of these fronts.”
The political consulting firm Democracy Partners is at the center of the Project Veritas investigation exposing Democrat operatives instigating violence at Trump rallies and plotting potential voter fraud. Robert Creamer is the founder of Democracy Partners and a frequent visitor to the Obama White House.
