On Sept. 15, 2009, my office began an investigation into possible criminality on the part of three ACORN employees. The three had been secretly videotaped by two people posing as a pimp and prostitute, who came to ACORN’S Brooklyn office, seeking advice about how to purchase a house with money generated by their ‘business.’ The ‘couple’ later made the recording public. That investigation is now concluded and no criminality has been found.Conservatives are quickly claiming this as another instance of Democratic corruption. For those who have always viewed ACORN as guilty, this finding is nothing more then a reaffirmation of their belief in corrupt bargaining within the administration, but then again, Fox News, Big Government, and the rest of the conservative misinformation media laid down the guilty verdict before all the facts were ever released from the conservative activists who filmed the interactions with ACORN. This, of course, was the plan, which can be equated to the largest tainting of a jury pool.
