AP just announced that ACORN fired BOTH women in the "prostitution" video. For those of you who screamed and yelled that it "Could be fake" - do you believe now?
Did you also watch the young lady as she claimed to have spent HER OWN money to make this video because she saw ACORN members and didn't think what they were doing was right - and set out to expose them.
Now, if it hadn't Already been going on - where would she have come up with the idea to expose it?
HOW MANY times is ACORN gonna have to "defend" themselves before people wake up to what this organization really is. Don't tell me about the token grandma who had her house saved - tell me that OTHER agencies who don't operate OUTSIDE the law can be established - because this country DOES NOT need any organization who will bend the law as long as they don't get caught and only step up when they do get caught.

Don't get sucked in. It was real, but the firings were a "save face" type action. They are under fire and threat of investigation from all sides. They are trying to say, "Oh, look! We are respectable. We fired the two who were corrupt in our whole organization!" Grin, grin, grin Riiiiiiggghhhttt!

I don't think people will ever wake up to how corrupt an organization ACORN is. They've got ties that go all the way to the Oval Office to cover their dishonesty. ACORN must be on the up and up, after all, they were buddy buddy with BO. RIGHT!

Of course autodidact. ACORN is responsible for the actions of their employees. If a Walmart store clerk punches me, I can sue Walmart. If the garbage man runs over my kid with the garbage truck, the waste management company is responsible. If a police officer is caught taking a bribe, they investigate the entire department, not just the one officer.
This is not the first case of ACORN employees stepping over the line. To blame the employees without blaming ACORN is ludicrous.
