I realize that many (if not all of you) have probably seen the undercover videos made by a James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. If you have not (or simply would like a brief overview of where things are right now) then we’ve got a few links for you.
Episode 1: James and Hannah get some assistance in setting up a brothel from ACORN staff in Baltimore.
Episode 2: Our intrepid reporters reprise their roles and find the staff in the Washington DC office of ACORN most helpful.
Episode 3: Once again into the breach. This time it’s the Big Apple where funding for enterprising pimps may be had.
Episode 4: Heading west, this time to San Bernardino, where someone working for ACORN (and apparently experienced in breaking the law) gives them needed advice.
Meanwhile, in light of these events, we know that at least four ACORN employees have been released from service (two each at Baltimore and DC), the Director of the US Census has said “No, thank you” to offers of assistance from ACORN in reference to the Census, 83 Senators have voted for an amendment which would turn off the taxpayer cash spigot to ACORN, and some other Congressmen have formally requested that the IRS sever ties with the group.
Other than that, things are kind of quiet with the group which our President addressed before he was elected (along with other community organizing groups):
Obama took questions from the moderator, Katherine Hughes. Katherine Hughes says, “If elected president would you agree in your first 100 days to meet with a delegation of representatives from these various community organizations, the Campaign for Community Values, and so forth, can they count on you in your first 100 days to sit down with them?”
OBAMA: Yes. But let me say that before I even get inaugurated, during the transition we’re going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. (cheering) We’re going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda of the next presidency of the United States of America!
Hey, has anybody seen what’s happening with Kanye West? Isn’t he going into detox or something? Oh, don’t worry about that ACORN stuff, that is just a distraction by a bunch of wight wing wascists and other wascally wabbits.
