This video was made public Thursday on BigGovernment.com, a political blog launched by Andrew Breitbart. In the videotape, James O’Keefe, a 25-year-old independent filmmaker, posed as a pimp with a 20-year-old woman named “Kenya” who posed as a prostitute while visiting ACORN’s office in Baltimore. The results are shocking to say the least.
I tend to tune out Glenn Beck when he goes witch hunting. I didn’t pay much attention to the ACORN voter fraud scandal. I completely ignored him when he found out about ACORN’s tax evasion problem and embezzling by its former president. I even became irritated and lost respect for him when he tried tying “the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now” to President Obama.
ACORN undeniably has a vast reach over our country within low to moderate income families and communities. Team that up with the amount of federal and state money it receives and we have no choice but to start asking for answers. House Republican Leader John Boehner released this information showing how much federal aid ACORN is provided. I hate to sound like Glenn Beck but it is time we rise up as a country and hold our government and programs like this responsible for wasting our hard earned tax dollars.
