ACORN's Rule of Holes - Keep Digging

The rank criminality of ACORN continues to get little play in the New York Times and other national media outlets despite the fact (or perhaps the reason for the inattention) that the organization has close ties to the Obama Administration. ACORN has repeatedly stated that criminality of a few of its offices do not represent the national organization and are a few bad apples.

Their representatives even went so far as to say that James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles were unable to gain video showing ACORN workers providing advice to the duo on how to evade the law in places like New York City.

Except that O'Keefe did:

One time is a fluke, twice is a coincidence. Three times? That's a pattern and bodes poorly for ACORN. This is a group with significant power within the Democratic party and forms a grassroots base. The stupidity and criminality of providing advice to the duo of O'Keefe and Giles posing as pimps on how to break the law, engage in child prostitution and other criminal acts is breathtaking in its scope.

The ACORN workers providing in great detail how to break the law and what to do is just astounding to watch. After all, do these people not realize what they're talking about? They're telling the duo how to break the law, and it's a surprisingly similar answer from the three offices.

Where's the rest of the media to follow up on this and keep the pressure on ACORN, as well as law enforcement who might want to learn who else has taken advantage of ACORN's generous advice.

Don Surber also notes the scandal and that the organization should have its union and government funding cut off.
