ACORN in the news again

A few months ago, there was a big scandal as two people playing the role of pimp and prostitute went into five different ACORN offices and tried to get them to help with their plan of buying a house, setting up a brothel staffed with underage women from El Salvador and not paying taxes. In every case, the ACORN officials bent over backwards offering help. ACORN lost its Federal funding, lost its connection with the US Census and generally got a bit black eye. What did not happen was an investigation. Since they were receiving Federal funding, the Attorney General should have stepped in and done a thorough ream job. He didn't. So, yesterday, Andrew Breitbart released yet another tape -- same scenario and same outcome and he then had this to say. From Big Government:
Breitbart to AG Holder: Investigate ACORN or We�ll Release More Tapes Just Before 2010 Election
Earlier tonight Andrew Breitbart, James O�Keefe and Hannah Giles discussed the final chapter of the ACORN L.A. saga on �Hannity,� but more interestingly, Breitbart disclosed where the story goes from here. Transcript (below) starts from 3:50 into the clip:

Breitbart: There�s a lot of hypocrisy and the dust has settled for ACORN and at the end of the day they�ve recognized that Eric Holder, the Attorney General, has not initiated an investigation into ACORN after we now have seven tapes. There were five initially that came out, ACORN was defunded by the Senate, was defunded by the House, lost it�s link to the Census; while all that damage occurred, Congress didn�t come in to investigate them, obviously not the Attorney General�s office, and they�ve now realized let�s get back into business because they realized that the dust settled and they were not being investigated, it was Hannah, James, and me who were being investigated, that�s why we�ve been forced to offer this latest tape.

Hannity: Are you saying, Andrew, that there are more tapes?

Breitbart: Oh my goodness there are! Not only are there more tapes, it�s not just ACORN. And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it�s not just ACORN, and we�re going to hold out until the next election cycle, or else if you want to do a clean investigation, we will give you the rest of what we have, we will comply with you, we will give you the documentation we have from countless ACORN whistleblowers who want to come forward but are fearful of this organization and the retribution that they fear that this is a dangerous organization. So if you get into an investigation, we will give you the tapes; if you don�t give us the tapes, we will revisit these tapes come election time.
Mr. Holder, would you like a nice big glass of PWND? I love what the internet has done for journalism... Posted by DaveH at November 20, 2009 9:27 PM
