Shocking News: More Undercover ACORN Videos from LA

In my previous blogging life I spent a lot of time focusing on ACORN and voter registration fraud. Despite numerous official investigations, that side of ACORN's illegal activities never really reached the public consciousness. So each time the folks over at Brietbart's Big Government release another ACORN sting video it warms my heart a little.

Here's the latest one from James O'Keefe titled The LA Story, Part IV: Program for Torture Victims.

Lavelle Stewart, of ACORN in South Central Los Angeles, tells us she thinks we have to hook up with "someone who's on that international sex business level," that "14 and 15 year olds been traveling overseas for years," that she can do independent research for us, and that she has had meetings with Porn magnate Larry Flynt. As for laundering the sex money into my faux political campaign, Lavelle says, "there are ways, people do it all the time. Yeah there are ways, especially out here in California."
More video at the link, above.

What is there to say that hasn't been said? The organization deserves ten times the legal issues it will encounter. I don't have much hope they will be prosecuted heavily given their deep connections with the current administration. I am encouraged to think federal cuts to their funding are more likely to be permanent the more the evidence mounts. But even that is something to watch in the coming months.

no way! ACORN said: "They were THROWN OUT of every other office!"

ACORN lied??

The Democrats continue to shield this criminal organization...despite the sham of "cutting off funding".

Jerry Brown, our alleged 'Attorney General' her in CA has already let it be known that the fix is in and he intends to prosecute the FILM MAKERS!

Andrew B was just on Hannity and he's got more. He also threatened to dump them just prior to the next election if the AG Eric Holder doesn't investigate ACORN. He also said that the tapes were not just ACORN but others.

I'd hate to have a 'D' after my name in 2010 if I was running for political office. Despised doesn't even begin to describe the mood of the electorate.

I agree, Gmac, the electorate is in a Torches & Pitchforks mood now...and likely to continue to be so next year as unemployment hits 11+%

Actually this is the seventh video released, number six was show a couple days ago and also in LA.

The sixth vid is the only one so far where an ACORN worker actually didn't help, but with a caveat.

He was A OK with helping them setup a whose house but when learning it would involve minor children he said "no way Jose."

Since ACORN operates across state lines, and multiple felonies are involved, doesn't their activities warrant a serious investigation by the FBI?

If not, what does?

Is this story being picked up by the lame-stream media? It took them days to even mention these acorn videos last time round.

The "deep thinking" liberals will never hear about it otherwise. Thank goodness the independents are moving to FOX to get their news more and more often.

You would think so, but it's not going to happen. And the reason for this is because ACORN is a major component of the Democratic Party GOTV infrastructure. Therefore, there will be no investigation.

I'm afraid the only person Holder will be investigating is going to be Andrew Breitbart. Mark my words.

I don't normally watch Hannity, but I saw that Breitbart segment last night.

Breitbart offered to turn over all of the remaining tapes and all of their notes to the Justice Department if they open a serious official investigation of ACORN. But nothing happens, if he doesn't hear from them by next fall, he'll release them publicly to be sure they receive a fair hearing.

The Justice Department has no choice but to see that the three of them are indicted for illegal wiretapping and seize the tapes. You just know the Obama administration will do something to shut them up, probably by getting Massachusetts or California to do the dirty work. My guess is they'll either be in prison or awaiting trial by next summer, under threat of heavy prison time if the tapes are released. It's the way things work in Washington.

The Liberals always trot out that Breitbart lied about Philadelphia, which in their mind discredits everything else he says as a lie.

When this scandal first broke ACORN's spokesman Scott Levenson said:

The conservative filmmakers unsuccessfully attempted similar ruses at the group's offices in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Los Angeles, California, and New York, Levenson said.

Subsequent videos show that they weren't actually thrown out of Phildelphia, New York and now Los Angeles.

So who is the liar? If we apply the Left's lie rule to ACORN, shouldn't everything they say be considered a lie?

"I am encouraged to think federal cuts to their funding are more likely to be permanent the more the evidence mounts."

Eh. I don't know about that, because cuts to 'their' funding will just be made up by giving more to SEIU or one of the other dozens of fake orgs that make up ACORN.

The only thing that will have an affect is if multiple ACORN people who have broken the law go to prison.

Les Nessman:

Something that MIGHT affect this scandal is if the MSM starts digging into it.

Fat chance of that, I guess:

"PATTERICO: L.A. Times Columnist Uncritically Quoted Star of Latest ACORN Video. "In September, L.A. Times columnist James Rainey wrote a column in which he uncritically quoted ACORN worker Lavelle Stewart suggesting that she had turned Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe out of her office . . . It's too bad Rainey never received that warning. Because guess who is the star of Giles and O'Keefe's latest ACORN video? . . . I now publicly ask the question Rainey would not answer privately: having written a misleading column that falsely suggested that ACORN in L.A. was clean -- and that Giles and O'Keefe were dishonest -- is James Rainey now going to write a new column and correct the record?"

Here is the transcript:

Breitbart: There's a lot of hypocrisy and the dust has settled for ACORN and at the end of the day they've recognized that Eric Holder, the Attorney General, has not initiated an investigation into ACORN after we now have seven tapes. There were five initially that came out, ACORN was defunded by the Senate, was defunded by the House, lost it's link to the Census; while all that damage occurred, Congress didn't come in to investigate them, obviously not the Attorney General's office, and they've now realized let's get back into business because they realized that the dust settled and they were not being investigated, it was Hannah, James, and me who were being investigated, that's why we've been forced to offer this latest tape.

Hannity: Are you saying, Andrew, that there are more tapes?

Breitbart: Oh my goodness there are! Not only are there more tapes, it's not just ACORN. And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it's not just ACORN, and we're going to hold out until the next election cycle, or else if you want to do a clean investigation, we will give you the rest of what we have, we will comply with you, we will give you the documentation we have from countless ACORN whistle blowers who want to come forward but are fearful of this organization and the retribution that they fear that this is a dangerous organization. So if you get into an investigation, we will give you the tapes; if you don't give us the tapes, we will revisit these tapes come election time.

Hannity: This is a blockbuster, what you're saying here.

This is a damning blow to the Obama administration and specifically to AG Holder.
Essentially Andrew B is telling him to fish or cut bait. I can't wait to see the reaction but with the hoopla surrounding this weekend's healthscare vote it will most likely be overlooked.
