The $1,300 mission to fell ACORN

The proposition was outrageous, outlandish, and right up James E. O’Keefe III’s alley. Hannah Giles was on the phone from the District, and she was asking him to dress like her pimp, walk into the offices of the ACORN community activist group, openly admit to wanting to buy a house to run as a brothel, and see what happened.

It was serendipity, O’Keefe said Thursday. On that day in May, he was still burning mad after watching a YouTube video of Acorn workers breaking padlocks off foreclosed homes and barging in. “I was upset,” he said.

O’Keefe, 25, packed his grandfather’s old wide-brimmed derby hat from his swing-dancing days, his grandmother’s ratty chinchilla shoulder throw, and a cane he bought at a dollar store, then drove from his parents’ home in northern New Jersey to the District to execute the idea with Giles, 20.

What happened next was a scandal that has shaken ACORN to its core. O’Keefe and Giles secretly videoed ACORN workers in the District, Brooklyn and Baltimore as they coached the secret filmmakers on how to evade taxes and misrepresent the nature of their business enterprise to get into a home.

The $1,300 mission to fell ACORN

In the immortal words of The *A* Team leader, John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, I love it when a plan comes together!

FORT WORTH - ACORN offices across Texas are temporarily halting the bulk of their work, following the lead of other chapters nationwide, as ACORN re-trains workers and makes sure proper policies and procedures are in place to avoid any improper activity.
State Rep. Lon Burnam, D-Fort Worth, also has worked with ACORN, and once attended a national convention of the group. He praised local workers but said he’s “disappointed and sad” at the national controversy.

“The right-wingers are out to kill a progressive, populist, economic justice organization,” he said. SOURCE

“The right-wingers are out to kill a racist, socialist, taxpayer dollar sucking, criminal organization,” he said.

There, I fixed it!! :P

ACORN, and it’s inherent EVIL, are rapidly being brought down. State, federal officials cut off money to ACORN, the majority of Americans, for ALL sides of the political spectrum, are seeing ACORN for exactly what it is and are coming to their senses.

There’s only one fly in the ointment right now. Will Barack Hussein Obama, the man who would not be POTUS were it not FOR the support he received from ACORN, sign the legislation to defund these crooks?

That is yet to be seen!
