ACORN Investigation: New Video Shows Corruption in Washington, DC Office

Posted: Sep 11, 2009 11:59 AM
Just one day after explosive video out of a Baltimore ACORN office showed workers advising a young couple on tax evasion, prostitution cover-up and the illegal trafficking of minors for sex, Fox News has uncovered a second hidden-camera conversation with ACORN workers--this time in the nation's capital.

This new video, shot on July 25, shows more ACORN workers discussing how the pair can keep the girls' profession under wraps.  On the videotape, filmmaker James and his "girlfriend" Hannah receive guidance to establish Hannah--posing as a prostitute--as the sole proprietor of a bogus company to purposefully mask the nature of her illegal business.
The ACORN staffer is heard suggesting that O'Keefe can purchase a house, and as the landlord, if he is ever questioned by authorities, he can say he was unaware of the illegal business going on inside.

"[W]hen the police ask you, (tell them) you don't know where (the money is) coming from," the staffer said. "We are looking out for you."

The ACORN employee later suggests that O'Keefe, who said he had a budding political career, not linger at the house in case people "put the dots together" and leave him "smeared and tarnished" by his association with his prostitute girlfriend. She should keep her business "low key," the employee said.

Part I

Part II

ACORN calls itself a network of families "working together for social justice and stronger communities." Instead, this raw footage proves that this group is nothing more than a corrupt criminal enterprise.  

Also, the fact that none of the workers in these videos have flinched at the idea of advising prostitutes and pimps on how to evade the IRS and the police sure tells us a lot: either they have no moral standards whatsoever, or they deal with this kind of situation a lot more frequently than they'd care to admit.  Either way, this is criminal and my tax dollars should be no where near a place like this.
