Posted on 09/17/2009 7:21:53 AM PDT by an amused spectator
(AP) An advocacy group under fire after employees were caught on camera appearing to advise a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp to lie about the woman's profession to get housing help said Wednesday it is ordering an independent investigation.
In the film, O'Keefe and Giles enter an ACORN office in Brooklyn and O'Keefe can be heard stating that "we have a unique life situation" and asking if the pair qualify for housing help.
The ACORN housing coordinator and office administrator apparently urge the couple to lie about the woman's profession, with the housing coordinator suggesting that the woman launder the money.

Of course, if this had been a Republican organization, we would have seen in screaming 20-point type:
The overwhelming majority of people working in the “news media” are Democrats. They genuinely believe that ACORN is a “good” organization, and that opposition to the Obama Administration is “racist”.
I’m sure that AG Eric Holder will be happy to “investigate” and dismiss all charges as he did with the Black Panther voter intimidation case. This administration is rotten to the core.
how do you make it flash?
ACORN is a “good”, actually, just a “desirous” organization because they help to accomplish the ENDS that the left wants to accomplish, they really don’t care about the means.
According to Hayek, these type of unscrupulous people are inevitably used to implement a collectivist system, because it takes a “whip” to implement such a system, and those unwilling to use that whip will be quickly replaced by those who will.
Heck the ‘ independent” panel is more leftist and partisan than Holder,’
Ok maybe not more but as least as partisan..
Anyone care to predict the findings from this “ Independent” panel?
Hey, now that ACORN has decided to investigate itself, we can all go back to sleep. Sarc/
Anything they order is meaningless... An institution of authority, say a state and federal investigation...that should mean something.
SEIU investigating ACORN is ‘independent’?!
I find it a little suspicious that yesterday Bertha Lewis said the actions were “indefensible” and on the same day the White House finally came out and said the actions on the tapes were “indefensible”. I think ole Bertha has been talking to someone higher up. Hmmm, who could that be?
This Fox page has footage of the video taken close to the Border that I said would happen yesterday. See post 13 below.
Fox wrote...”In the latest video, O’Keefe asked the man if Tijuana is the best place to bring the girls to cross over into the U.S.
The man replied “yes,” because he has a lot of contacts there who can assist in bringing them across the border.”
I posted this yesterday...
What is Patrick Fitzgerald doing these days?
