The nuts didn't fall far from the tree

I guess the problems at ACORN go further than ACORN thought.

If you recall last week after the news broke about the problem in their Baltimore office, they denied it, then fired the two workers claiming it was an isolated incident.

Then the same thing was shown to have occurred in their Washington D.C. office and two workers there were also fired.

Now the same thing has occurred in the ACORN offices in Brooklyn.

I predicted that there would be more videotapes and apparently there was. There will probably be a bunch more surfacing as well.

'Pimp & hooker' catch B'klyn staff

The scandal surrounding the left-wing activist organization ACORN has spread to New York, with employees at its Brooklyn office caught on video helping supposed ladies of the night get loans for their dream houses of ill repute.

Rather than reminding the women that prostitution is dangerous and illegal and advising them to change their careers, counselors at the social-services group shockingly offer suggestions on how they can launder their earnings.

"Honesty is not going to get you the house," a loan counselor at the offices told two activists posing as a mortgage-seeking pimp and prostitute.

"You can't say what you do for a living."


ACORN workers in two other cities, Baltimore and Washington, DC, had already fallen hooker, line and sinker for the hidden-camera sting operation by two conservative activists.

Four ACORN employees have been fired as a result of the earlier videos, and last Friday the Census Bureau severed its ties with the group, whose members had been hired to do canvassing during the 2010 census.
