Hidden video exposing ACORN. (ACORN may receive $8.5 billion in Stimulus Funds!)

Original post made by Beth, Amberwood/Wood Meadows, on Sep 11, 2009

Since many of you reading this PW Forum have indicated that you don't read or watch FoxNews, I wanted you to be aware of the following. (This will probably not be on mainstream media.)

In the 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.

ACORN stands to receive $8.5 BILLION in Stimulus Funds.

THIS is where your hard earned tax dollars are going. THIS EXEMPLIFIES the OBAMA Administration!

Here is a link for you to view for yourself...

Beth, this video has made it's way out to a lot of other websites (except of course the 'mainstream media' sites).
Depressing to think we're funding ACORN (to do what exactly?) with lots of taxpayer money.
This may get picked up by the MS le th Van Jones fiasco, but only when they can no longer ignore the story. They've been scooped again and fail to report anything negative to their 'community organizer' in chief.
Things have fallen so far, so fast......

I sure hope this is one topic that we can ALL unite upon.

Our government funding ACORN has got to stop. This video, on top of all the other red flags we have seen over the years, truly evidences the corruption of this organization.

The time has come to stop all funding to ACORN. This organization must be investigated and no further funds released to them until a completely bi-partisan investigation has been concluded.

It is a complete disgrace that our taxpayer dollars are being funneled to an organization that sees nothing wrong with spending OUR tax dollars to promote prostitution, tax evasion, and illegal immigration. But much darker than all that is that this organization sees nothing wrong with assisting those who seek to exploit the most innocent group of citizens we have...our children. This video evidences that ACORN is willing to assist with CHILD TRAFFICING for crying out loud! Is this really how you want your hard-earned money to be spent?

And why is the media not covering this story? This is not a disputed video...the ACORN employees have been FIRED!!! So why not cover it? It's a huge story!

We all need to recognize that there is news that is not being covered. Republican, Independent, or Democrat, we should all have the opportunity to be informed about what is going on.

Emily and Beth:
It is even worse than you mention above.

In the past, CNN has acted in defense of ACORN and accusing of those investigating ACORN of wrongdoing (e.g. false entrapment or similar charge). CNN has invited the person responsible for making the ACORN video to appear on TV and that journalist has declined for now...until the unedited video is seen via the internet, on FoxNews and other alternative media. That journalist wisely understands CNN's ulterior motive, based on CNN's history, of rushing to the defense of ACORN.
