National Review: Acorn Scandal is NO JOKE

The editors of National Review have responded to the Fascist Left's dismissal of the Acorn scandal in typical, studied, understated style....

James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, two guerilla documentarians, have accomplished what neither the Republican party’s sense of outrage nor the Democratic party’s sense of decency could: They have inspired the federal government to begin cutting its ties with ACORN, the shady “community activist” organization that helped bring Barack Obama to power.

The set-up was both risible and shocking. Mr. O’Keefe and Miss Giles, who look for all the world like young Republican country-clubbers dressed for a tasteless costume party, walked into a number of ACORN offices and managed to pass themselves off as a pimp and a prostitute. They informed ACORN staffers that they were looking to set up a whorehouse and to traffic some children into the country for the purposes of prostitution. ACORN’s official mission is to facilitate affordable housing and social services for low-income families, not to facilitate child trafficking, but the staffers responded with advice on getting on welfare, claiming their underage victims as dependents, evading law enforcement, cheating on their taxes, defrauding federal housing authorities, et cetera ad nauseam. One ACORN staffer advised Miss Giles to bury her illicit sex-trade earnings in a tin in her back yard.

Asked about housing assistance, an ACORN staffer explains: “Honesty is not going to get the house. That’s why you've probably been denied. . . . Don't say you’re a prostitute thing or whatever.” Similar sagacity followed.

Only in Barack Hussein Hoover Pinnochio Muhammad bin Obama's America....

ACORN, after having denied the videos, suggesting that they have been heavily and unfairly edited, and suggesting that the videos revealed "a few bad apples" (never telling us where they kept the good apples), has now announced that, consequent to the admittedly "indefensible" actions of these ACORN employees, serious reforms of their organization will follow.

However, until they get a chance to engage in some damage control, ACORN states that it is stopping taking "new intakes" (i.e., clients who might be fronting with a camera to figure out what additional illegalities might be going on inside).
