ACORN Fires More Officials for Helping 'Pimp,' 'Prostitute' in Washington Office
Foxnews ^ | 9/11/2009 | Staff

Posted on 09/11/2009 1:15:41 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

Two more ACORN officials were fired Friday after a second video surfaced showing staffers in the community organizers' Washington office offering to help a man and woman posing as a pimp and prostitute acquire illegal home loans that would help them set up a brothel.

The firings came less than 24 hours after another pair of ACORN officials from the group's Baltimore office were canned for instructing the "pimp" and "prostitute" how to falsify tax forms and seek illegal benefits for 13 "very young" girls from El Salvador that pair said they wanted to import to work as child prostitutes.

Both of the encounters were videotaped on a hidden camera wielded by 25-year-old independent filmmaker James O'Keefe, posing as the pimp — tapes that have ignited calls for investigations of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

Keep them in the news as long as possible and clean out as many crooks as we can. The longer we do this, the more likely public perception will come out against ACORN, and then tasking them to do the census would look absolutely embarrassing.

Two more ACORN officials were fired Friday after ..
So, this means people somewhere above the rank of 'line worker' were canned?

Go, Glennnnn!

Go, FoxNews!!!

[I’m beginning to think FoxNews is kind of liking this. They seem to be the new investigative journalism branch. The other news departments at CBSNBCABCMSNBCCNN certainly aren’t doing much real journalism and even less investigative journalism.]

I just hope the higher-ups at FoxNews don’t let certain pressure tactics and thug groups get to them.

Because "these clowns" didn't do any of this. ACORN workers abetted the false story of reporters. According to Judge Napalitano, they are facing about 40 years worth of charges if such charges are persured by the feds (of course, we know they won't be persued becaue that would lead to higherups involvement).

Clearly, this group is involved in coordinated, organized criminal activity. RICO is the tool to tear this group apart and with Obummer’s ties to them, it has the potential to be very damaging.

Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., called for a hearing to investigate ACORN's tax filing assistance programs following the release of the videos he said suggested multiple incidents of tax fraud.

Maybe Rangel has been getting his tax advice from ACORN.

The guy was just interviewed on Hannity.

He said he was amazed. No matter what wildly illegal and immoral activity he came up with, ACORN was right there with him to help him get away with it.

The ACORN reps were the ones that brought in the “tax expert”, without the guy asking, in order to figure out how to avoid paying taxes on their “income”.

Since the MSM has spent years handing out "passes" to every left wing group on the planet - these folks are used to getting away with murder. When FOX sends their teams in, it'll be as easy as shooting fish in a barrel... and twice as much fun.

Beck implied on the radio that this operation has been in the works for a couple of months, and asked his listeners how high we can count. I knew this was a one day story if there was no follow up, but there is much more to come.

The people that need to go are the slave masters who run this criminal organization.

Brietbart or O’Keefe said there are 48 hours of tape. If the Baltimore tape is 1 hour, and the DC tape is about an hour, well... (insert Jeopardy music).

If this doesn’t trigger the elimination of all funding to ACORN, SEIU, etc., then we’re doomed.

ACORN’s response...very laughable!

Statement from Margaret Williams, Board Member, Maryland ACORN
September 10, 2009

Fox’s attempt to smear ACORN Thursday September 10, 2009 is despicable, part of a coordinated, long-term campaign by Fox to damage ACORN, the premiere community organization of low- and moderate-income people in the United States. Every day ACORN members are working for health care reform, living wage jobs, to end the foreclosure crisis, and to strengthen our public schools. For its part, Fox is running a campaign to demonize ACORN. They will get attention, but they will not succeed.

In July 2009, Fox agents attempted to enter ACORN offices in New York, in Philadelphia, in San Diego, in Los Angeles, and possibly other locales. In each case they were turned away, and in Philadelphia ACORN staff were concerned enough that a police report was filed. In Baltimore, the Fox squad deceived ACORN staff by consistently misrepresenting their intentions. No tax returns were filed and no assistance was provided. But the ACORN personnel in question have been terminated because their handling of the Fox agents provocateurs did not meet ACORN’s standards of professionalism.

The larger pattern of Fox’s irresponsible actions here is the real news. From Glenn Beck calling President Obama a racist, to Fox inciting racism and threats of violence with the Teaparties, to Fox unleashing a hit job on ACORN the day after an inspiring Presidential healthcare speech before Congress, Fox has long since abandoned any journalistic pretense. It is clear and not coincidence that FOX continues to attack and divide our nation along racial lines. We believe our country is beyond this type of attack and call on all Americans to demand that FOX stop its racist coverage.

Absolutely. Having watched the videos, those women talked confidently and knew good and well what they were doing...there's no way this was their first time committing fraud or tax evasion.
