ACORN in Denial and Retreat

First, they tried to claim it was an isolated incident, and threatened lawsuits.

Then they tried to claim it was the actions of a few bad apples, which they subsequently terminated.

After New York, they gave up the pretense of firing their employees for enabling fraud in the interests of trafficking in minors for the purpose of prostitution. By that point, with the state AG starting an investigation, such a fig leaf was obviously no longer of use.

And ACORN San Bernardino still employs the worker who not only was willing to help commit fraud for the lust of pedophiles, but who was concerned over the safety and love life of our young madam-to-be.

Seemingly radioactive, all ACORN can do now is hunker down and hope that they can survive being exposed. They've stopped taking new clients, perhaps fearful of what more hidden cameras might find. As Ace noted, they're playing by the crisis management handbook.

The real question is whether or not activist filmmaker James O'Keefe and journalism student Hannah Giles have enough damaging undercover videos capturing ACORN-trained employees encouraging and supporting fraud and slavery to do the criminal enterprise in.

Human Events says a new video is supposed to drop tonight, and says their are more to follow.

For their part, ACORN continues to threaten on one hand as they apologize on the other. They are ashamed of getting caught, but hardly remorseful.

They are thugs and they are monsters, exploiting those they claim to represent, and they must be shut down.

The latest video from San Diego shows the ACORN guy telling the couple to bring their underage girls to Tijuana, where he has good contacts that can facilitate getting them into the country illegally.
