ACORN

Recommended Posts

I just want to see what people opinion are about Acorn, Considering, they help Obama get elected, and are now being investigated for falsifying hundreds of voter registration cards.

Not to mention the recent incident in Baltimore for allegedly offering tax evasion advice for child prostitution

Having looked into ACORN a bit after seeing this posted, I can see why people could be annoyed that a few bad offices were giving out poor advice but as an organisation as a whole I don't see why people have a rpoblem, they help poorer people, they fight to raise minimum wage, they try to get poorer people registered to vote so they have a voice.

 

Seems to me that the Republican party has decided to use any excuse to make the democrats look bad. ACORN were the ones that actually reported the offices for the false voter records hardly seems like the work of a bad organisation.

 

God forbid an organisation in America that actually tries to help poorer people, it just isn't the American way. What a surprise it is Fox reporting this story, must be completely true!!

 

Oh no they have ties to Obama, well I would rather have a leader tied to an organisation that helps people than having ties to people like Halliburton and other big business that are just out for themselves

people get pissed at ACORN, but don't seem to have a problem with KBR's " you can't sue us if you get gang raped by your co-workers clause".... the gang rape actually happened, unlike the reporter posing as a madame.

What a surprise, it was all bullshit...

 

 

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California Attorney General Jerry Brown determined Thursday that ACORN broke no criminal laws, after reviewing videotapes that sparked a recent political firestorm.

Brown's office said it would not pursue charges against the now-defunct community organizing group. But it said ACORN engaged in inappropriate behavior that may prompt other state agencies to take a look, such as dumping 500 pages of confidential records into the trash and failing to file a state tax return.

"A few ACORN members exhibited terrible judgment and highly inappropriate behavior in videotapes obtained in the investigation," Brown said in a statement. "But they didn't commit prosecutable crimes in California."

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Brown last year to investigate ACORN after employees were seen in video segments appearing to advise a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute. ACORN staff told the couple to lie about the woman's profession to get financial help.

The hidden-camera videos created a political firestorm when they were released, and tarnished the once-mighty ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. The organization folded last month.

Brown, a Democrat running for governor, said the tapes were highly edited.

Rather than give advice on prostituting underage girls, human trafficking and cheating on taxes, the attorney general's office found ACORN members at times caught on to the scheme and called the police in the portions of the videos that were cut.

"Sometimes a fuller truth is found on the cutting room floor," Brown said.

To obtain the full tapes, Brown's office agreed not to prosecute conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, who played the pimp and prostitute in the video, even though the report found they likely violated state privacy laws.

In California, O'Keefe used hidden cameras on visits to ACORN offices in San Diego, San Bernardino and Los Angeles. State law requires both parties to give consent before a conversation is recorded.

ACORN could not be reached for comment because the group has disbanded, and phone listing for O'Keefe and Giles could not be found.

Besides not filing taxes and throwing away confidential papers, the attorney general's report found four instances of possible voter registration fraud by ACORN in San Diego accompanying the 2008 election.

Brown raised a concern that a successor group to ACORN in California is "run by the same people."

O'Keefe is now facing charges in New Orleans on a federal case involving an attempt to tamper with Sen. Mary Landrieu's office. Federal authorities initially accused O'Keefe and three others of trying to tamper with Landrieu's phones, but now say they planned to pretend to test the phone system.
