This is indeed shocking. Shocking that a twenty year old has done what the mainstream press refuses to do. A twenty year old!!! She makes the main street media look like a bunch of rank amatuers. And to make matters even worse, the press doesn't even pick up the story. What a disgrace our media is!!!

Propaganda... pull this child pimping, whore mongering, enemy of the union up by the roots...shake off the soil and prosecute. Co-conspirators, and MSM propaganists should not be spared either.

What I find amusing is that Progressives can never ever admit fault and even when the truth is right in front of them they refuse to see what ever might disagree with their narrow preconceived notions of the world. They live in fear they might be wrong, which is why they are a dogmatic people. They hate all who do not agree with them. They cannot understand how anyone cannot see the truth as they do. In a nutshell they are very dangerous people, dangerous to liberty and freedom.



Even your link acknowledges that Giles & O'Keefe appear to have exposed "genuine wrongdoing". If the Acorn worker was "playing around" with Giles & O'Keefe, she was certainly "playing with fire" & displayed extremely poor judgement.

That said, ACORN is finally beginning to get the scrutiny it's deserved for a long time and that's not likely to be a good thing for ACORN.

The question is just screaming to be posed: How many ACORN locations did these "investigators" (Inquisitors?) have to infiltrate before they were able to implicate three corrupt officials?

Has anyone bothered to ask that question?

I smell a rat. Better still, I smell a FOX.

Ok, so ACORN is perpatrating fraud... woohooo! We can take these losers down. Now all we have to do is do the same thing for Blackwater.... ooops, I guess maybe on 2nd thought that if ACORN was doing this in the compounds in Iraq or Afghanistan, it would be ok...


Mr. Degan: How many ACORN offices advising pimps on how to get federal funding for underage prostitution would be too many?

Saladdin: Your comparison works both ways.

Acorn is being prosecuted in multiple jurisdictions for voter fraud. The
New Black Panthers practiced intimidation at polls in Philadelphia during
the last election. Coverage in the broadcast media and major press outlets?
Little if any. In 2004 there were allegations of voter fraud and intimidation
leveled against Republicans for which no evidence was ever found. Big media
printed or broadcast every allegation, no matter how ridiculous. John Kerry
continues this meme to avoid responsibility for his shortcomings as a candidate.
He is never called to task for this. Without the cable news outlets and the
alternate media the American people would be flying blind (and deaf).


So why does Fox News hire someone like Beck who is rumored to have raped a young woman in 1990? I don't think he's ever denied it -- doesn't Fox do background checks on their talking heads?


George: Beck did no such thing. See: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2009/09/can-a-mere-domain-name-be-defamation-glenn-beck-says-yes.ars. Any reason person could have figured that out in a few minutes time.


It appears the stingers got stung...

According to the San Bernardino Sun...

""They were not believable," Kaelke said in ACORN's official statement. "They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me."

Amy Schur, ACORN's top California organizer, said Kaelke exercised bad judgement in "messing with" the undercover bloggers."


"Detectives Investigate Homicide Claims
Investigations Lt. D. Keil explains that an undercover video reportedly filmed in the San Bernardino office for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was recently released on the Internet. The film depicts a worker talking about her past involvement in prostitution and the alleged self-defense killing of her former husband.

The San Bernardino Police Department is investigating the claims made regarding the homicide. From the initial investigation conducted, the claims do not appear to be factual. Investigators have been in contact with the involved party's known former husbands, who are alive and well."



It's sad that it's taken a "stunt" to finally drag ACORN to public scrutiny. However, this is the type of undercover video expose that launched "60 Minutes", back when CBS was serious about its reporting.

As I said before, "If the Acorn worker was "playing around" with Giles & O'Keefe, she was certainly "playing with fire" & displayed extremely poor judgement." Ronald Kaelke said in a telephone interview. In 2007, the couple traded allegations of domestic violence and received separate restraining orders against each other, he said. "As far as her murdering an ex-husband, that's news to me,' Ronald Kaelke said. 'She's definitely got problems and goes off the wall sometimes."

"Off the wall", yeah that sounds about right...

ACORN has enjoyed the protection of politicians that have benefited from its less than reputable practices. Those involved in politics, especially in Illinois and major urban areas, are well aware of ACORN and its connections. As is the mainstream media IN those areas, who tend to support those politicians and the "progressive" goals of ACORN.

That protection is unraveling as ACORN is finally becoming exposed to the general public.

Even the MSM is finding itself forced to begin reporting on ACORN (however reluctantly) as their attempts to bury the news is effectively burying them in the marketplace.

I'm glad that ACORN is getting busted and de-funded. The question remains though, will those funds just be transferred to their new organization called COI (Community Organizations International)? And although this is a victory, it is a SMALL victory...we cannot relent! It's like yard gainage at the Super Bowl...it's just a small gain in the larger scope of everything. Are we going to think of this as a victory and go back to slumberland, or are we going to hold their feet to the fire and DEMAND a real investigation, going all the way up to the top? Are we going to demand that those in government, who have been involved with ACORN and the corruption that abounds, also be fully investigated by a truly impartial panel or are we going to give them a free pass? And what about SEIU? I say it's time we stop slumbering and hold each accountable for their level and participation in the corruption, and that anything ACORN was involved with (from election to housing) be investigated fully!

Obama is on record of not following the scandal too closely- sure right.
He is on record be in favor of an investigation but not specifically a
Justice Department one. Typical for a not important national issue(according
to him)-sure right again! Widespread corruption of his former client, advisor in setting his administration's agenda and recipient of over $800,000 of his money
doesn't warrant his close attention-sure right again for the third time. Leave it to Acorn's internal audit and investigation-sure we trust them too!

Disingenuous thy name is Barack Obama!

PS-Please quit insulting our intelligence.


Michael: Whatever connection Obama has to ACORN, he is quite right to ignore the controversy. Any comment he made would be interpreted as 'covering his butt.'
