The ACORN Prostitution Investigation

The videos, from Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government site, are pretty self-explanatory and I encourage all of your to watch them. Somehow, I don’t expect this issue to be going away any time soon. After all, this certainly seems to run the gamut of unlawful activities, from advice advocating tax fraud to welfare fraud to the trafficking of underage Latin American prostitutes.

Here’s a decent summary from a Fox News piece detailing the investigation:

Officials with the controversial community organizing group ACORN were secretly videotaped offering to assist two individuals posing as a pimp and a prostitute, encouraging them to lie to the Internal Revenue Service and providing guidance on how to claim underage girls from South America as dependents.

In the videotape, made on July 24, James O’Keefe, a 25-year-old independent filmmaker, posed as a pimp with a 20-year-old woman named “Kenya” who posed as a prostitute while visiting ACORN’s office in Baltimore. The couple told ACORN staffers they wanted to secure housing where the woman could continue to maintain a prostitution business.

ACORN, of course, has denied everything. In the meantime, I wonder if I should bring up the tax-related issues in my Federal Income Taxation class. We’ll see.

    "Kenya", of all names… Those investigators sure had a twisted sense of humor! By the way, anyone taking bets as to how many ACORN footpads wind up in jail over the scandal?

    too bad we'll never hear about this in the MSM. I just checked the homepages of these sites-

    CNN.com- nothing.
    NYTimes.com- nada.
    ABCNews.com- zilch.
    MSNBC.com- don't even need to look!

    Someone needs to start a site that tracks and exposes the bias of these so-called "news"-outlets a/k/a Obama shills.

    Am I allowed to pick a number less than one? (Obama will probably appoint both of them – "Small Business Czars")

    The girl who put herself out there as a prostitute to do the story is only 20 years old and a budding journalist – yes, a real journalist. She was on Beck today, and Glenn warned her to watch her back. Beck ask her (only to reiterate) if she was being paid by any special group or political party. She said no, she wanted to do the story and drained her bank account to do so. She's intent on doing these kinds of stories, and thank goodness she's out there doing the work that the msm in-the-pocket talking heads (I can't call them journalists) should be doing. We need more stories like this to go viral and continue the exposure.

    Please sign the Beck petition and pass it on.

    Shades of Rick's in Casablanca: "I'm shocked — SHOCKED! — to discover that there is gambling (tax fraud, prostitution, sex trafficking etc. etc.) going on in this establishment!"

    There is a second video in a Wash DC ACORN office. Bye, bye, ACORN's excuse that this was an isolated incident.

    Get rid of ACORN NOW!!!

    LOL! I noticed the ghetto math too.

  20. TNelson says:

    It will be fun to see how many more videos they have! I bet every ACORN office in America has employees sweating it out right now, because they all know they did something. Maybe not this, but was that other dubious deal a sting too?
    HAHAAAA!!! Sweat it out!

    STATEMENT OF STATE’S ATTORNEYS OFFICE FOR BALTIMORE CITY RELATIVE TO THE ALLEGED BALTIMORE ACORN INCIDENT

    Baltimore, MD – September 11, 2009 – We have received inquiries from citizens and the media asking whether the Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office would initiate a criminal investigation for acts allegedly committed at ACORN offices located in Baltimore. The only information received in reference to this alleged criminal behavior was a YouTube video. Upon review by this office, the video appears to be incomplete. In addition, the audio portion could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law, Annotated Code of Maryland Courts and Judicial Proceedings Article §10-402, which requires two party consent.

    If it is determined that the audio portion now being heard on YouTube was illegally obtained, it is also illegal under Maryland Law to willfully use or willfully disclose the content of said audio. The penalty for the unlawful interception, disclosure or use of it is a felony punishable up to 5 years.

    Ignore everything and put the real journalist in jail. That sounds like an Obama answer to the problem. This will bring us one step closer to a Revolution!
