Brooklyn prosecutors on Monday cleared ACORN 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 James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles 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 Arthur Schwartz 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.
