[URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Brooklyn+%28New+York+City%29"]Brooklyn[/URL] prosecutors on Monday cleared [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Association+of+Community+Organizations+for+Reform+Now"]ACORN[/URL] of criminal wrongdoing after a four-month probe that began when undercover conservative activists filmed workers giving what appeared to be illegal advice on how to hide money.


While the video by [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/James+O%27Keefe"]James O'Keefe[/URL] and [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Hannah+Giles"]Hannah Giles[/URL] seemed to show three ACORN workers advising a prostitute how to hide ill-gotten gains, the unedited version was not as clear, according to a law enforcement source.
"They edited the tape to meet their agenda," said the source.


Acorn is gratified that the DA has concluded something we knew all along," ACORN lawyer [URL="http://www.nydailynews.com/topics/Arthur+Schwartz"]Arthur Schwartz[/URL] said, adding it was "unfortunate" the O'Keefe and Giles used "subterfuge to convince congress and the media to vilify an organization that didn't deserve it."

Would like to see unedited version before making assumption.


Wouldn't have carried same reaction had I known the original version was "heavily" edited.

I mean honestly, how much stuff do they have to get accused of before people realize they aren't the best of operations.

that's idiotic logic. i can accuse you of being a pedophile every day for a decade, it doesn't mean you are one.

Or, is it something that has to be proven as lies like "Global Warming" as seen tonight, oh wait...it's called "Global Change" now...right?

Yes, but I will never be accused of a pedophile, murderer, rapist, etc. because I don't put myself in the situation. Logic and morals are somewhat different.

i don't see how it could've been edited to represent their agenda. the conversations were clear, understood, and uncut. i'd have to see both versions to draw a conclusion. but for now, i'd have to call BS on that. i would've definitely noticed if there was any questionable editing involved.

they weren't uncut. that's the point. they were edited and doctored.

they were cleared by the [I]prosecution[/I]. a prosecutor could've built a career on taking down a big controversial organization like this. they have no motivation for just making shit up to drop charges.

investigators and prosecutors have put in months of work trying to find a way to charge them. i'm sure they wish they could just 'call BS' without actually seeing the evidence, but they had to actually do their jobs.

he is on retainer by Breitbart. editing a video obviously isn't illegal, but i think that chubby closet-case could run into some trouble over the phone thing.

on one hand, i can kind of understand the political point of the little phone prank.

but when you consider that there was a Secret Service office down the hall, tampering with the phones in any capacity is going to get you SO screwed.

ACORN has been exposed. Justice has been served and they are now rendered impotent in the political community.

So Breitbart is completely guilty of supporting this kind of crap. In other news, all you right wingers love to post from Breitbart sites because they "expose stuff the liberal media is afraid to". And you will keep on doing it.

So again, ha ha ha ha
