Never underestimate the power of a 20-year-old woman in hot pants.
Just hook her up with an apple-cheeked young man dressed as a sort of preppy pimp, add a video camera and send them off for a chat with some dimwitted neighborhood financial counselors for ACORN. Stir in enough chutzpah to make Borat look like a shrinking violet and you've got one heckuva scandal.
Young conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles hardened up their fresh-faced looks just enough to pose as a pimp and prostitute seeking advice at ACORN offices on setting up a brothel...

James and Hannah are awesome. ACORN needs to be totally investigated because Obama *IS* ACORN.
The headline should be: ‘How Acorn Helped The Democrats By ‘Stealing’ From The Poor.’
Most of Acorn’s money went into the campaign coffers of democrats and the leftist marxist machine. In essence..Acorn took taxpayer money away from more deserving groups that were competing for federal dollars to ‘help’ the poor. THAT is the story here..but don’t expect any intellectually honest reporting on it.
And just what best possible picture could they expect from these sewer rats?
And this is a bad thing???
IMO, it's about time someone spurred people to action.
ACORN has evaded scrutiny for years due to democrat protection. They probably thought it would go on forever and just got careless. Too bad. /s
Don’t you just hate it when criminals and their apologists get caught? Sad state of affairs in our wonderful country.
A humble start around the kitchen table of assorted communists, violent radicals and other criminals.
According to Clarence, ACORN is just another one of those “occupants” of Obama’s neighborhood! The $800,000 Hussein paid to ACORN last year?? Somehow that didn’t come up in Page’s article! An OVERSIGHT no doubt! Sorry, Clarence. But those evil “right-wing” kooks who populate the radio have already reported this story to many, many millions of people. Your ilk no longer monopolizes the ENTIRE media.
These two kids should go into the investigative reporting Hall of Fame, if there is such a thing. I wonder whether they ever considered what could have happened to them if the camera they used had been discovered by the “dim-witted+ Acorn tax and vice advisors.
Many ACORN rank and file workers are thugs and ex-cons. ACORN leaders know this. I wonder what those leaders would have done to those kids, considering that the filming of their extra dim-witted employees may bring down the entire criminal organization.
Nevada atty. general has indicted acorn. poor things get no respect. Help ‘em out obango. lol
From the article:
“The organization and the former community organizer [Obama] have not had much contact since, other than connections that have been alleged or exaggerated by conservative media.”
Right there is the whole reason for this article - Clarence has his kneepads on, and is busy trying to make sure nobody is going to get a shot at Dear Leader’s behind.
Of course, Page conveniently overlooks Obama’s promise to ACORN that his administration will not only be sensitive to their concerns, but that he’ll be seeking their input.
Listen to these jerkwads and they’d have you believing that the community-organizer-in-chief is barely aware of the existence of the operation that’s crime central in the world of community organizing.
This sounds to me as though Page just admitted that ACORN is at war with America and considers America as its enemy.
Back in 1995, young Harvard Law grad Barack Obama helped ACORN and a team of Chicago attorneys -- along with the U. S. Department of Justice -- win a lawsuit forcing the state of Illinois to implement the federal "motor-voter" bill. The organization and the former community organizer have not had much contact since, other than connections that have been alleged or exaggerated by conservative media.
He seems to ignore the little matter of Obama representing ACORN and other grifters in a successful lawsuit that forced one or more major Chicago banks to loan money to totally unqalified borrowers, Obama's being one of their lead teachers on organizing and getting out the fictitious vote, and the $800,000+ the '08 Obama campaign gift to ACORN to gin up fictitious votes.
Lord have mercey. If ACORN commies can be taken in by these two "squeeky clean" nice looking young kids, it's really expanding the definition of Stalin's reference to "useful idiots".
They fell for this?!? Talk about sub-zero IQ's...
Why doesn’t Clarence Page talk about the ACORN staff giving information about how to cheat on taxes, used underaged girls as whore etc? Why doesn’t he address the issue?
That does seem to be the "take" of most journalists..
