Pattern and practice (updated)
Isn't it time for RICO investigation of ACORN? A third videotape of ACORN employees counseling a couple posing as pimp and prostitute on evading the law has been published on BigGovernment.com. James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Andrew Breitbart have demonstrated a pattern and practice of corruption in the national organization at three different locations.
ACORN is now threatening a lawsuit against Fox News for not observing the MSM embargo on the videotapes produced by the awesome thresome from BigGovernment.com. John Fund of the WSJ comemnts, "Bring it on!" in the video discussion below.
Needless to say a lawsuit would only bring more attention to the case, and highlight the failure of MSM to cover serious corruption in an organization with deep ties to the president.
Update from Clarice Feldman:
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.
The sting caught ACORN workers assisting the duo in preparing false tax returns, filinf false housing grant applications, abetting a plan to traffic in underage girls from Central America in Baltimore , Washington,D.C. and now Brooklyn.When will the federal government see a pattern and act?
Update from reader Lebo:
I'm hearing several organizations as well as many individuals calling for Congress and/or or Justice to conduct a full investigation of ACORN. I guess I have an issue with this approach. While I do believe a full investigation is required, asking Congress and/or Justice to do the investigation is like asking the fox to look out for the well being and security of the hen-house. Several points come to mind immediately;
1. How deep within the Federal government does this corruption reach?
2. Recall President Obama worked with ACORN and was a "Community Organizer" in Chicago. Perhaps he is one of the people who taught the local chapter workers how to cheat the IRS and lie to open houses of prostitution. How to engage in voter fraud. He does have a legal background. Makes one wonder.
3. Congress has funded ACORN and similar organizations for years now to the tune of millions (Billions?) How dirty are their hands? Conflict of interest if they run the investigation.
4. Have justice do the investigation? You must be joking. Justice appears to be so badly corrupted politically I wouldn't trust them to run an investigation of a J-Walking incident. Recently they have failed to prosecute Black Panthers while going after the CIA. Not a good track-record.
What I'm saying is I do not trust my own Federal Government enough to conduct a real, thorough, fair and honest investigation. Perhaps there is some way to have a group of independents at the State Level conduct the investigation as you will most certainly not get "Justice" by having the Federal Government run the investigation.
