Is it time to dismantle ACORN? Are they doing more harm than good?

For a while now, ACORN has not had the best reputation, no matter what side of the fence you may sit on and with eveything surrounding the 2008 election and voter fraud as well as the arrests made last week in Florida in regards to votor fraud, I pose this question….

Is ACORN now, doing more harm than good?

They certainly dont seem to bring any additional value to a person running for high political position, in fact it hurts them, they have had some questionable business practices, it has been proven that employees have conducted voter fraud and now they seems to have employees giving IRS advice to a “Pimp and Prostitute”?

This really made me laugh.

So last month, 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 two told ACORN they wanted to secure housing for her to run her prostitution business out of.

WTF?? Was the employee in on this? My first instinct would have been “Am I on Candid Camera”

On the videotape, th “prostitute” can be seen telling an ACORN staffer that she earns roughly $8,000 a month. The ACORN employee then suggests to “Kenya” that ACORN could submit a tax return for 2008 showing that she made $9,600 for the entire year — instead of $96,000 — and that ACORN would charge “Kenya” $50 instead of the usual $150 fee for preparing her taxes.


Now, in respect to ACORN, this is only a certain cut bit of the tape, and when the two say they want to bring young girls over from El Salvador the ACORN staffer does say it is illegal, however it does bring out the LOL’s.

The ACORN staffer can also be seen suggesting that the prostitute list her occupation as a freelance “performing artist.”

“It’s not dancing, trust me,” the “pimp” says.

“But dancing is considered an art,” the ACORN staffer replies. “[Exotic dancers] usually go under performing artists, or yeah, they usually go under performing arts, which will be what you are — a performing artist.”

Well that explains something about Heidi Montag

Perhaps ACORN deep down really do have their hearts in the right places, but they seem to seriously need a better way to screen potential employees as it looks like these two may end up in prison.
