    ACORN Officials Could Face Criminal Charges for Trying to Help 'Pimp' and 'Prostitute'

    Thursday, September 10, 2009

    Staffers for the community organizing group ACORN could face criminal charges after being caught on video encouraging a man and woman posing as a pimp and prostitute to commit federal tax fraud and offering to help them — for a fee — to establish a child brothel, legal experts say.

    In a video made public Thursday, two visitors to an ACORN office in Baltimore told staffers they needed assistance securing housing where the woman, a 20-year-old who called herself "Kenya," could continue to run her prostitution business.

    An ACORN official told the couple how to falsify tax forms and seek illegal benefits for 13 "very young" girls from El Salvador that they said they wanted to import as prostitutes.

    Though no tax forms were filed and the child prostitutes didn't exist, the ACORN official engaged in "numerous acts of criminal facilitation," said Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News senior judicial analyst.

    "Criminal facilitation occurs whenever a person encourages, enables, entices, or explains to another how to commit crimes with the real purpose of helping that person to commit those crimes" — a violation the ACORN employee "committed in full," he said.

    Napolitano said the worker could also face charges for criminal conspiracy, though each charge would require a heavier burden to prove: a so-called "act of furtherance" — a concrete move that makes the conspiracy active.

    Napolitano outlined eight crimes the ACORN worker could potentially have committed that could bring a total sentence of 24 years in prison, including criminal facilitation and conspiracy to:
    • (a) commit prostitution
    • (b) operate a prostitution ring
    • (c) file false documents with taxing and other government authorities
    • (d) file false documents with a bank [also known as bank fraud]
    • (e) violate numerous immigration laws
    • (f) transport children into the U.S. for immoral purposes
    • (g) transport women into the U.S. for immoral purposes [also known as violating the Mann Act]
    • (h) impair the welfare of minors.


    These are the people Obama promised would help him develop his agenda.

    No, these are rogue workers at one ACORN office. Still, I am no fan of ACORN. I had to deal with them back in the 70s, and they tend to be very pushy and bully folks.

    You are quibbling. ACORN is corrupt, period. These are rogue workers only if you consider all ACORN workers to be rogues. Obama was at one time a rogue Acorn worker, now he are president.

    Maybe this is why folks like Rush and others call them the liberal media.

    Fox is the only really biased major media I've ever come across.

    Oberman and Maddow are simply shills for the GE/NBC group. They get creamed each and every night in the ratings and what's more, they don't report the news!!! They spend their precious broadcast time reporting what FNC has reported or what the various personalities on FNC have said or done, applying their own bias in the spin.

    Talk about being obsessed and jealous...

    to Alatide:

    You are aware, aren't you...that:
    • These ACORN cretins were trying to help a pimp and a prostitute with their buisness ventures...right?
    • These ACORN cretins were offering suggestions for bringing in teenaged prostitutes....right?
    • These ACORN cretins weren't the least bit bothered by this stuff...right?
    Why not be intellectually honest, and denounce these scum?

    ACORN Fires More Officials for Helping 'Pimp,' 'Prostitute' in Washington Office
    Friday, September 11, 2009

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,549241,00.html

    Two more ACORN officials were fired Friday after a second video surfaced showing staffers in the community organizers' Washington office offering to help a man and woman posing as a pimp and prostitute acquire illegal home loans that would help them set up a brothel.

    The firings came less than 24 hours after another pair of ACORN officials from the group's Baltimore office were canned for instructing the "pimp" and "prostitute" how to falsify tax forms and seek illegal benefits for 13 "very young" girls from El Salvador that pair said they wanted to import to work as child prostitutes.

    Both of the encounters were videotaped on a hidden camera wielded by 25-year-old independent filmmaker James O'Keefe, posing as the pimp — tapes that have ignited calls for investigations of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

    The group's leaders said Friday they were "appalled and angry" at what their staffers had done, but insisted the videos were part of a political "smear" campaign and not representative of the institution as a whole.

    "But that does not excuse the behavior of the employees," wrote ACORN's president Alton Bennet and executive director Mike Shea. "We have fired them and are initiating an internal review of practices and reminding all staff of their obligation to uphold the highest legal and ethical standards."


    Recall these people are slated for $8.5 billion from the porkulus bill and are to assist in the 2010 census after illegally registering 400,000 people to vote.
