ACORN Undercover

Want a hoot?

Check out this "tax expert" from the Baltimore office of ACORN trying to help a "prostitute" and her "pimp" (actually undercover filmmakers) withhold money from the IRS.

It gets better. She also offers her advice about the hooker's plan to import a bunch of underage Salvadorean girls to put on the street as sex workers.


UPDATE: ACORN fires the workers involved. What a shame.

I think we shold all send Sixty Minutes a thank you email for there thorough and brave investigation into ACORN. I would be the first to agree that CBS seemed a liberal---Oh, wait a minute, it wasn't Sixty Minutes-- ah, never mind!

So what does this prove? Let's see. It proves that fox contributers pose really well as prostitutes. No surprise there. It proves that fox contributers are really good at lying. Again, no surprise there. And it proves that certain people, given the opportunity, will engage in unethical practices. But then politicians have been proving that since the beginning of time. Are we to conclude that all Acorn workers are tax cheats because of this one video? Are we to conclude that all Republicans are tax cheats because of Duke Cunningham? Or cheat on their wives because of Sanford? Or closet cases because of Senator Craig?

I think we can conclude based on this and copious amounts of other evidence that ACORN is an organization not very concerned with law abiding.

The filmmakers went to several Acorn locations, and were thrown out of all but one. So, this wasn't Acorn policy to help prostitution. It was a hunt for dumb employees.

The fake-prostitute was on Glenn Beck describing how she got the idea. She was jogging after work
"I saw an Acorn. I said, 'Hmph', I've never seen them before. I don't like them."
I'm wondering if it had anything to do with the color of their skin, since it was such a book-by-the-cover reaction on her part.
The quote is at time-stamp 4:30 left.

Surely, one would agree that ACORN is ripe for an investigation and since 60 minutes is a "news magazine" it's obvious that they would have an interest, unless. Well, I will let you fill in the unless.

This incident with Acorn is not an isolated instance of law breaking or the encouragement of law breaking. Acorn is being investigated here in Delaware County for voter fraud, and in many other places throughout the US. As for your examples, you left out Bill Clinton (the impeached President).

Is there anything about Fox News or republicans that appeals to you?

Dear Spencerblog - Im playing at the Town House tonight. At the end of the year when I declare my earnings, I will file as a performance artist. Does that make me a prostitute?

Scott -Yea. Arthell Neville. I also like it when Glen Beck turns beat red and his head looks like it's going to explode. Thats pretty funny.

I like my Dad. He's a Republican. I like Gil. He's a Republican too. I liked Bush Sr. I voted for him. I thought Reagan was right on the money when he pulled the troops out of Lebanon after the barracks were bombed. I liked Ike. I credit Nixon with developing a relationship with China. I believe in capital punishment in certain cases. I'm sure there's more.

So who gets investigated more? Congress or Acorn?

You know Glenn Beck is only doing what Mike Wallace has done for years at CBS and Mike Wallace has won the accolades and the praise from fellow journalist. I guess that imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery unless it is done liberally. You know Beck dose not expect to win the left's most pretigious Edward R. Murrow award. He be satisfied with the average joe tax payer appreciation award.

You can like your dad. You can like George Sr. You can like me. But not because I'm a Republican. Because, I'm not.

Gil - I'm sorry. That wasn't meant as an insult. I thought I was the only independant on this blog.

You might be the only "independant" (sic). I suspect Gil is an "independent".
Weren't you the one who recently ridiculed another blogger's opinion because he misspelled "intelligent"?
What is it they say about people in glass houses?
