ACORN Vid Prostitute a SoFla Pastor's Daughter
NBC Miami ^ | Thu, Sep 17, 2009 | BRIAN HAMACHER

Posted on 09/17/2009 9:19:23 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Hooker actually a 20-year-old FIU journalism student

She was a down on her luck prostitute with a pimp, at least she pretended to be while working to uncover alleged wrongdoing within advocacy group ACORN, but it turns out the 20-year-old hooker is actually a South Florida pastor's daughter and an FIU undergrad. Hannah Giles quickly became the most famous journalism student at Florida International University after she stirred up quite a storm and become a conservative hero while spending her summer posing as a call girl to infiltrate the offices of ACORN. Giles became an internet sensation after hidden camera videos, showing her in scantily clad hooker gear entering ACORN offices in Baltimore, New York, Washington and San Bernadino, Calif., accompanied by James Keefe, himself dressed in outrageous pimp wear, made the rounds on news outlets the past few weeks.

Undercover in ACORN

In the videos, Giles and Keefe discuss their situation with ACORN workers, saying the two need help getting a house which they would like to turn into an underage brothel. The ACORN workers advise the two of illegal ways of getting around laws regarding income reporting. The hooker role is a shocking turn for Giles, whose father, Doug Giles, is senior pastor of the Clash Church in Aventura, according to the Miami Herald. Giles reportedly tried to work her undercover sting in Miami earlier this summer, but was unable to bait the local ACORN staff.

ACORN's Florida director, Stephanie Porta, told the Herald that Giles showed up at the Miami office, but that staffers advised her to visit a domestic violence shelter.

Yesterday, the national ACORN office announced that the organization was suspending key operations while they perform an independent review into the videos.

LOL...the mainstream media now jumps on the story since they found an ACORN office that appears to have acted somewhat decently and legally.

Outrageous in an understatement. He looked like he just stepped out of a 70’s blaxsploitation film.

so the attacks begin.

Joe the plumber
Sarah
Hannah
the woman who had the cheek to speak up and tell Spector that they have woken a sleeping giant.
Tea party
town halls
have they never learned that it doesn't work anymore with their name calling.
It is old and boring and the majority do not take them seriously anymore as like the so called media which is a joke.
The polls clearly indicate all of this but then again the left hates real facts and real numbers as it gets in the way of their little fantasy world.
How sad that the left have to live in fantasy world because they cannot handle the real world

the left just never can stop doing what they only know how to do and that is to demean someone.
They hate being called NAZIS and yet they act like NAZIS all the time.

sometimes it seems truth hurts them too much

The media will paint a bulls-eye on this young lady’s chest and the thugocracy will almost certainly go after her. I hope her father taught her how to shoot straight - and not just with words and deeds.

forgot Miss Ca too.

The media have been waiting and have been confused how to twist this to help their liberal whack job friends out.

so all else fails
name call and attack the person , just forget about what corruption is going on.
Well they are about to hear from me and ask them why they refuse to cover all of the corruption and why they refuse to mention to their few readers that obama is one of them in this corrupt group

notice how no one is reporting about the brothers and how they control ACORN and the SEIU and how they are so corrupt

I thought she looked familiar!

Ok, honestly, never seen here around these parts, but she looks like a pretty typical FIU student. Its a largely Cuban American student body, which are fairly conservative people. I think she'll be ok.

I am assuming she was posing as a hooker but without the pimp. Give them credit for not trying to get her an illegal loan and instead telling her to seek sanctuary.

Actually this was a Sting operation by ACORN. They were trying to warn the world about those neo-cons who were posing as “pimps, prostitutes and procurers” (a phrase used by a chaplain to help protect us poor sailors in boot camp).

That’s what I was thinking. Hannah said they weren’t turned away at any of the offices. I would look forward to the Miami video. Unfortunately, I don’t think they are going to release any of a little while.

I’m trying to remember what she said to Beck in explaining how she and that guy got started on this. I think she first noticed either an acorn office or acorn people and hatched the idea to investigate. So she may well have tried to give it a shot on her own. I wouldn’t assume an acorn office wouldn’t be a safe place, however quite frankly I would expect to either be turned away or not helped as much being a white person.

If you want to march on someone, march on Charles Gibson. He professes no knowledge of the growing scandal. Now wait and watch the first national piece on this be about the suit ACORN’s thugs are going to file on Giles for whatever. This is Orwell’s America. Charles Gibson needs to wake to a crowd of 100,000 people. He’s the biggest part of the problem here. He refuses to report the news.

Maybe safer than some places, but wow, who’s to say what happens when somebody catches on to the fact that they’re being set up by someone posing as a hooker? And, my understanding was that the whole point was to get incriminating video, and I think that was James doing the shooting. I surmise that the ACORN comment about referring her is a tad on the suspicious side.

I do worry about her getting her degree. I hope the people at FIU understand she is star of their program. Not that she should get special treatment, but that she should be treated fairly. They should understand and be proud it was an FIU student to do this not a UF or Columbia journalism student.

That's kinda what ACORN said about New York and San Diego.

I suspect the next video will be from Miami.

A couple times in the videos she talks of being abused by a pimp.

Speaking of her current “pimp” - I’m shocked they didn’t laugh him right out the door if he actually wore that outfit in.

Great job Hannah! There is so much hope in the youth of America. Yesterday, during a "Truth Tour" (where very large graphic abortion placards are held alongside a main thoroughfare) a car filled with young 20-something handsome young men came to hold the signs with their giant "Choose Life" lettering on the backs of their shirts. There were a few young women there as well. At 58, I was one of the more "mature" attendees. Go youth of America, trample on Satan!

If there are two dozen plus additional videos left to show, we'll find out soon enough.

That's counter to what Andrew Brietbart said last night on Hannity. He said that no one turned them away or reported them.
