ACORN promoting prostitution and other acts.
« on: Thu Sep 10, 2009 - 17:46:33 »
A young want to be journalist posed as a prostitute went to ACORN to have them help her get a house loan.  She was schooled on tax evasion, bringing illegals into the country, underage sex for hire, how to change her professions name from prostitute to preforming artist and many other felonies.  Best part it was all caught on tape but seems that fox is the only one that cares.

BALTIMORE (AP) — The nonprofit housing group ACORN has fired two employees at its Baltimore office who were seen on hidden-camera video giving advice to a man posing as a pimp and a woman pretending to be a prostitute.

Fox News Channel broadcast excerpts from the video Thursday. Those excerpts showed a man and woman asking about buying a house and how to account on tax forms for the woman's income. An ACORN employee advises the woman to list her occupation as "performance artist."

Maryland ACORN board member Margaret Williams says in a statement the employees "did not meet ACORN's standards of professionalism."

The statement also says the video was an attempt to smear ACORN and that undercover teams attempted similar stunts at three other ACORN offices.

ACORN stands for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

I'm sorry, but this is no more than damage control and spin.   ACORN is involved in many illegal activities...and yet, somehow, the media explains it away each and every time they get caught.  The pattern of corruption is there though.

In Christ,

ACORN is a sick joke.   It needs to be investigated by the Feds.  Crooked as the day is long and using our money to conduct it's business.  How much evidence can we ignore?  ACORN's standard party line is that these voter registration frauds and now the assist to prostitution involves only wayward members of the organization.  The problem with that excuse is that it is the organization's responsibility to check these people out and direct their activities.  Failure to do so, places the responsibility of the failure on the organization.  As a result, all taxpayer dollars should be suspended immediately.  Perhaps ACORN could downsize to a manageable number of people, like NONE!

Pretty damning video. ACORN can hoot and holler about it being a set-up, or gotcha journalism all they want, but that's just smoke & mirrors.  Bottom line is, this is really just like the guys on Datelines "To Catch a Predator" series saying he was just dropping off cookies and it's all a set-up.  Crooked is as crooked does.
