Fun times at ACORN San Diego

ACORN does not seem to have the best brains in the business. From Derrick Roach at Andrew Breitbart's Big Government:
BREAKING: San Diego ACORN Document Dump Scandal
On October 1st, 2009 California Attorney General Jerry Brown announced that an investigation had been opened into ACORN�s activities in California, resulting from undercover videos showing employees seemingly offering to assist the undercover film makers with human smuggling, child prostitution and even tax advice to boot.

Although ACORN has denied any wrongdoing, some of the employees involved were terminated, and ACORN has publicly stated that they would fully cooperate with any investigations that followed.

Interestingly, the local head ACORN organizer in California, David Lagstein was caught on tape earlier this month speaking to an East County Democratic Club.

Mr. Lagstein stated: ��the attorney general is a political animal, but certainly every bit of the communication we have had with them has suggested that the fault will be found with the people that did the video and not the people with ACORN.�

Continuing, Mr. Lagstein stated: ��we are fully cooperating, some of the investigators visited our office this morning and I think they really understand what�s going on.�

Shockingly, we now learn that the ACORN office in National City (San Diego County) engaged in a massive document dump on the evening of October 9th, containing thousands upon thousands of sensitive documents, just days prior to the Attorney General�s visit. has learned that not only did this document dump occur, but the documents in question were irresponsibly and brazenly dumped in a public dumpster, without considering laws and regulations as to how sensitive information should be treated.

I am a local licensed private investigator. I took it upon myself to keep an eye on what the local ACORN office was up to, in light of the release of the undercover videos. I retrieved these documents from the public dumpster.

They have a few scanned documents at the post -- ACORN tossed out pieces of paper with people's names addresses and Social Security Numbers on them. Also documents where people kept track of votors. This will take a couple weeks to sift through but is certainly damning to ACORN. As Derrick says:
Over the weeks and months ahead, will continue to release information from this shocking document dump by ACORN, slowly revealing the ugly truth of ACORN: the fact that their stated mission of helping the poor and downtrodden is just a ruse and a cover for an organization that is highly partisan and highly political, and thus rotten to the core.
Could not happen to a nicer bunch of people... Posted by DaveH at November 23, 2009 1:15 PM
