New videos by a young filmmaker and a young journalist released by Glenn Beck at Fox News show ACORN's blasé attitude toward almost any kind of crime, including, sickeningly, white slaving children into prostitution. Posing as a pimp and a prostitute, the two went to ACORN's Baltimore office and Washington, DC office, where staffers at both locations offered to help them set up a brothel "and seek illegal benefits for 13 'very young girls' from El Salvador that [the] pair said they wanted to import to work as child prostitutes."
Although huge amounts of tax monies are directed to ACORN on every government level, the organization gave plenty of advice to the purported criminals to help them avoid paying taxes.
ACORN and Obama have a long history of endorsing and supporting each other. Stanley Kurtz published some research on Obama's connections with ACORN at National Review Online:
At least a few news reports have briefly mentioned Obama’s role in training Acorn’s leaders, but none that I know of have said what Foulkes reports next: that Obama’s long service with Acorn led many members to serve as the volunteer shock troops of Obama’s early political campaigns — his initial 1996 State Senate campaign, and his failed bid for Congress in 2000 (Foulkes confuses the dates of these two campaigns.) With Obama having personally helped train a new cadre of Chicago Acorn leaders, by the time of Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign, Obama and Acorn were “old friends,” says Foulkes.Just in case you haven't seen these videos yet, here's a sample from Glenn Beck. The ACORN footage starts at about 5:30:
So along with the reservoir of political support that came to Obama through his close ties with Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, and other Chicago black churches, Chicago Acorn appears to have played a major role in Obama’s political advance. Sure enough, a bit of digging into Obama’s years in the Illinois State
Senateindicates strong concern with Acorn’s signature issues, as well as meetings with Acorn and the introduction by Obama of Acorn-friendly legislation on the living wage and banking practices. You begin to wonder whether, in his Springfield days, Obama might have best been characterized as “the Senator from Acorn." [emphasis mine]
Maybe it's time to review the allocation to ACORN of tens of billions of dollars of political payback money currently hidden in the "stimulus package"?
