The scandal surrounding the left-wing activist organization ACORN has spread to New York, with employees at its Brooklyn office caught on video helping supposed ladies of the night get loans for their dream houses of ill repute.As you watch these videos, one thing becomes clear. ACORN's goal of helping people doesn't have anything to do with whether such help is called for.
Rather than reminding the women that prostitution is dangerous and illegal and advising them to change their careers, counselors at the social-services group shockingly offer suggestions on how they can launder their earnings.Democrats are unaware and/or unconcerned with the corruption they promote. Covering it up is what serves their purposes, so cover-up they will.
Four ACORN employees have been fired as a result of the earlier videos, and last Friday the Census Bureau severed its ties with the group, whose members had been hired to do canvassing during the 2010 census.Wouldn't you think that, after the previous stings, word would have been sent out to all offices to stop their corrupt practices? Apparently, they've been doing business this way for so long that they know no other way.
As in prior videos released by the filmmaking team of James O'Keefe, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, employees of the group -- which specializes in housing and voter activism -- were eager to dispense advice on gaming the system and skirting the law. "You know, what goes on in the house we don't care," one counselor said. "We just help you with the mortgage."For the Dems, it's all about power.
