James O’Keefe aka “undercover pimp” strikes again. Yesterday after the first two videos broke Scott Levenson, a spokesman for ACORN said:
“The portrayal is false and defamatory and an attempt at gotcha journalism. This film crew tried to pull this sham at other offices and failed. ACORN wants to see the full video before commenting further.”
Oops, time to pull your foot out of your mouth and tell everyone ACORN is taking this problem seriously, Scott.
This is beginning to blow my mind, Charlie Rangel, the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee is being investigated for tax fraud. Christopher Dodd, Senate Banking Chairman, is being investigated for a sweet heart mortgage deal.
How is it possible that they keep their job and run a committee in the United States Congress while they are currently breaking the rules that they themselves are in charge of making? Perhaps this is the reason the public can’t trust the Legislative Branch anymore.
I’m asking the House Judiciary Chairmen to buck the trend. I know it will be tough for Congressmen John Conyers to do, he has fraud and corruption all around him. I am not only asking him to do his job legally but to actually do it right (the second time). I’ve heard “the powers that be” are very persuasive but please remember you took an oath of office to perform these duties. In light of the latest scandal, the least you can do is bring back your original plan and call for a probe.
