Rotten Acorn didn't fall far from obamas tree



I wonder if the New York Prosecutors are obama people like
the other one and will try to prosecute them for this one?

The scandal surrounding the left-wing activist organization ACORN has spread to New York, with employees at its Brooklyn office caught on video helping supposed ladies of the night get loans for their dream houses of ill repute.

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

"Honesty is not going to get you the house," a loan counselor at the offices told two activists posing as a mortgage-seeking pimp and prostitute.

"You can't say what you do for a living."

ACORN workers in two other cities, Baltimore and Washington, DC, had already fallen hooker, line and sinker for the hidden-camera sting operation by two conservative activists.

Four ACORN employees have been fired as a result of the earlier videos, and last Friday the Census Bureau severed its ties with the group, whose members had been hired to do canvassing during the 2010 census.

Mayor Bloomberg spoke out on the controversy today.

"Prostitution is illegal in this state and I don't know why they would -- why an organization like ACORN, who's trying to encourage voter turnout and voter registration, why they're getting involved in any of that stuff," Bloomberg said. "But clearly it's not appropriate and they shouldn't have been doing it. Whether they broke a law or not I don't know. You'll have to talk to the legal (authorities)."

The Brooklyn DA's office announced today it would be investigating the group.

In an unrelated outrage, ACORN was accused of widespread voter fraud during the 2008 presidential election by helping unqualified voters to register.

As in prior videos released by the filmmaking team of James O'Keefe, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, employees of the group -- which specializes in housing and voter activism -- were eager to dispense advice on gaming the system and skirting the law.

"You know, what goes on in the house we don't care," one counselor said. "We just help you with the mortgage."

O'Keefe and Giles were garishly dressed as a stereotypical pimp and prostitute. O'Keefe was decked out in excessively snazzy flesh-peddler couture, and Giles, going by the name "Eden," wore almost nothing.

The ACORN workers were not the slightest bit judgmental or put off by the request for help in getting financing for a brothel.

Counselor Volda Albert freely offered financial advice to the young couple, and held back on giving out any life advice.

As
The Market Ticker Guy says Rotten Acorns don't fall far from the tree...

Last week Glenn Beck blew the doors off a story that he had been cooking for a while: an undercover independent film-maker and associate had walked into an ACORN office pretending to be a pimp and prostitute and "asked for help" in cheating the government by obtaining both a housing subsidy and committing tax fraud.

But that's not where they stopped - they disclosed "intent" to bring in underage girls from El Salvador as the essence of their "business" to serve as prostitutes as well.

In short, they declared themselves as traffickers in the sexual abuse of children and asked this government-supported and funded "community organization" - an organization that Barack Obama was associated with very closely in his time as a Chicago "machine" politician before he ran for President - for help.

Instead of being tossed out on their tail (or having the cops called) they instead received advice from ACORN on how to swindle the United States Federal Government in the promulgation and practice of their alleged-unlawful scheme!

When the first tape broke there was outrage.

The second, in Baltimore, provoked a threat from the prosecutor - a threat to prosecute the filmmaker for "unlawful wiretapping" under Maryland statute.

(Note that not one word was said about prosecuting ACORN for suborning felony tax evasion, say much less suborning felony transport of minors across state and international borders for the purpose of prostitution!)

Once is a "rogue employee." Twice is "troubling."

But now a third tape has surfaced of the same pair asking the same questions in an ACORN Office in NYC.

In my opinion once is a rogue person in an organization a second time is deeply troubling, but with three separate tapes in three separate locations and three separate groups of staff, one must now ask: Is this systemic, organized support and suborning of felonious conduct? And if so, does it not rise to the level of racketeering and thus demand a full and complete federal prosecutorial response?

Where are the cops folks?

Have we descended into such a sea of lawlessness in this nation with all the bankster bailouts and hiding of "white collar" scams and frauds through the use of taxpayer funds that the apparent suborning of not only felony tax evasion but trafficking in underage girls as prostitutes - one of the most heinous and outrageous acts of exploitation of children and a bona-fide worldwide problem - is overlooked by our Federal Prosecutorial apparatus because the organization involved has strong ties to our President and his administration?

AGAIN: IS THE GOVERNMENT A FELON?

ARE THOSE OF YOU WITH DAUGHTERS GOING TO SIT ON YOUR FANNIES AND ALLOW THIS SORT OF SCANDAL TO BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN A PISSING MATCH BETWEEN FOX NEWS AND ACORN'S SPOKESWOMAN?

OR ARE THE MOTHERS, FATHERS, GRANDMOTHERS, GRANDFATHERS AND ALL OTHER GOOD, SOLID AMERICANS FINALLY GOING TO STAND UP AND SAY:

NO MORE DAMNIT, WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH! LOCK EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE CROOKS UP - THE CROOKS ON WALL STREET, THE CROOKS ON K STREET, THE CROOKS IN BALTIMORE, DC, NEW YORK AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. ALL OF THEM. AND BY THE WAY - THIS IS NOT A REQUEST; WE CAN AND WILL DO WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO PRESS OUR DEMAND. YOU WORK FOR US, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, AND WE WILL NO LONGER SIT, WATCH AMERICAN IDOL, AND TAKE THIS OUTRAGE. PERIOD. NOW GET OFF YOUR ASS AND GET TO WORK

I remind The Market Ticker Guy he voted for One Big Ass Mistake America! Thank Goodness the Video Makers will be fighting back!
