A five-month investigation into a tape showing Brooklyn’s ACORN office giving advice to a pimp and a prostitute has been cleared of any wrong doing. The tape shows ACORN employees providing information on how to smuggle 13-year-old foreign girls into the country, put them in a house of prostitution and avoid paying taxes on profits. See videos below.
The prosecutor, Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes, is a member of SEIU’s Working Families Party and is closely tied to ACORN. Apparently, the investigation ended because the prosecution said the two people posing as the pimp and prostitute, Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe, edited their video – rendering it “unclear” what the ACORN workers said or did not say.
I’d like to see the unedited version, and I bet you would too. I’d also like to hear just where the stories don’t quit gel. Do you think we’ll hear where there was insufficient clarity was apparent.
Founding Bloggers makes the point that Hynes is a member of the Working Families Party, by virtue of a pledge he signed, and an endorsement he received. “You have to seek the endorsement and make a commitment to the party.”
The whole thing stinks on ice.
In the Giles and O’Keefe undercover tape in a San Diego ACORN office, ACORN spokesman, David Lagstein allegedly told members of the East County Democrat Club that Attorney General Jerry Brown plans to find fault with the videographers (Giles and O’Keefe). Follow the link and hear the audio.
BigGovernment says California governer Jerry Brown will have a tough time going after Giles and O’Keefe for illegally taping the ACORN employees, as his aides “secretly recorded phone conversations with at least 5 reporters.
Let’s hear what is “unclear” in the Brooklyn tapes. Watch the videos below and let me know if you think they could have been edited to show a result that clearly was not a part of the tapes. Also, see links to other videos of other ACORN offices around the country.
