If you are anywhere near a radio and can hear Glenn Beck, you need to turn it on immediately. He is playing undercover video that captured ACORN workers in Baltimore helping two people posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend. They wanted to use 13 year old prostitutes from el Salvador as a way to make money that could be diverted to a congressional campaign. The video showed the ACORN workers going out of their way to help them do this. Listen at Glenn Beck and read it at Breitbart’s Big Government.
Update: Fox News has more on the story here:
Officials with the controversial community organizing group ACORN were secretly videotaped offering to assist two individuals posing as a pimp and a prostitute, encouraging them to lie to the Internal Revenue Service and providing guidance on how to claim underage girls from South America as dependents.
The videotape was made public Thursday on BigGovernment.com, a political blog launched by Andrew Breitbart as a companion site to his BigHollywood.breitbart.com blog.
In the videotape, made on July 24, James O’Keefe, a 25-year-old independent filmmaker, posed as a pimp with a 20-year-old woman named “Kenya” who posed as a prostitute while visiting ACORN’s office in Baltimore. The couple told ACORN staffers they wanted to secure housing where the woman could continue to maintain a prostitution business.
ACORN — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — bills itself as the nation’s largest community of low- and moderate-income families “working together for social justice and stronger communities,” according to its Web site. The organization has been accused by Republicans and conservative activists with fraud in voter registration drives around the country and has been under fire since last year for its support of President Obama and for its planned participation in next year’s census.
As Glenn has been saying all morning, President Obama is in bed with ACORN, which means he can’t be trusted either. So how can we allow him to to impose his health care reform on the American public? We can’t. He and his administration are fraught with corruption unlike anything this country has seen before. Obama himself said he wants to be the last president to deal with the issue of health care reform. If he gets the health care system he wants installed, he just may be the last president to have a say because once it’s up and running it stays up and running.
Update II: Here’s the video from Big Government:
Honestly, I’m shocked the ACORN ladies fell for this because the costumes the “prostitute” and “pimp” were wearing were so ridiculous that, to me at least, they looked like they were trying too hard to look the part.
Update III: ACORN fired the two women in the video. Move along now. There’s nothing left to see here.
