James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles teach ACORN that Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy
The scandal surrounding the left-wing activist organization ACORN has spread to New York, with employees at its Brooklyn office caught on video helping supposed ladies of the night get loans for their dream houses of ill repute. Rather than reminding the women that prostitution is dangerous and illegal and advising them to change their careers, counselors at the social-services group shockingly offer suggestions on how they can launder their earnings.
VIDEO – Pimps, Prostitutes and ACORN – NYC Edition Because this comment from ACORN is supposed to make it all better?
This recent scam, which was attempted in San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia to name a few places, had failed for months before the results we’ve all recently seen. -Bertha Lewis, Chief Organizer, ACORN
ACORN has threatened to sue independent film maker James O’Keefe claiming that the video was doctored. Doctored or edited, Acorn? I am sure that O’Keefe and media outlets were privy to all raw video. What does O’Keefe say with regards to law suit … BRING IT ON!!!
The independent filmmaker whose hidden-camera videos prompted the firing of four ACORN workers is demanding an apology from ACORN for calling his work a fabricated “scam” and daring the activist group to take legal action against him.
“Bring it on,” filmmaker James O’Keefe said Sunday on FOX News.
Just wondering Acorn, what damages do you have seeing that you fired employees after the tapes surfaced?
BTW, ever heard of discovery? I am sure President Obama would really love you to pursue a lawsuit that would involve interrogatories and discovery.
UPDATE I: More from the blogs regarding the scandal plagued ACORN. The Titles are just fantastic:

UPDATE II: John Fund on Fox News says Bring it On, Too.
ACORN can try as they might, they are so busted and no leg to stand on. How could they possible sue and claim damages of doctored tapes when their actions of firing their employees speak volumes. If the tapes were doctored as they state, they would have defended their employees, not given them the axe.
UPDATE III: It is hard to believe that ACORN is actually thinking about bringing a law suit against FOX News. For what, airing a video? For what, actually reporting the news of a corrupt organization that was telling individuals how to launder money and you to go about putting together a business plan for child prostitution. Really? How is it that when one walks into an office and references child prostitution that it does not then evoke a response like get out of our office or a call to the police.
Facing intensifying scrutiny after the release of several disturbing hidden camera videos, the community organizing group, ACORN, is threatening to sue Fox News, the website Breitbart.com and the two conservative activists who produced the exposes.
How typical, huh Barack? ACORN caught dead to rights and they claim that the words and pictures of their own eployees are not real. This is what investigative journalism is all about. Do you think that the WAPO or NY Times would have got these threats of a law suit? Then again, these media outlets forgot long ago that investigative journalism knows no party affiliation. ACORN’s bad week continues.
