Below are links to information
on ACORN that has been referenced on True Northís radio series on the groupís
Day, Another Liberal Jumps from the Obamacare Titanic: "On October
15th, local ACORN spokesman David Lagstein was the special guest of the
East County Democrat Club in El Cajon, CA. Lagstein is ACORNís chief organizer
in the San Diego area. The meeting was held at Cocoís Restaurant, a very
public venue. Because of ACORNís close ties to the Democrat party, Mr.
Lagstein clearly felt he was among friends. These two clips suggest
the investigation of ACORN announced by California Attorney General Jerry
Brown already has a pre-determined outcome."
Defunded Until October 31st. That's It: There's a lot of talk out
there about ACORN being stripped of their federal funding, and restricted
from receiving federal funds in the future. Sadly, this couldn't be further
from the truth. ...
Congress can pass another
CR if it hasnít finished passing the spending bills. That CR would
also have an expiration date of a matter of days or weeks or maybe months.
But, unless that CR includes the same language as Sec. 163, money will
flow right back to ACORN on November 1st.
Show Video of ACORN 'Sting' in Philadelphia:
James O'Keefe, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, played a heavily-edited video
on Wednesday depicting their visit to ACORN's Philadelphia office on July
24. Giles, clad in a fur coat and leather skirt, posed as a prostitute,
while O'Keefe played the role of her pimp. The pair claim they were not
"kicked out" of the office without assistance from ACORN employee Katherine
has been reported.
"At no point were we kicked
out and at no point were we asked to leave," O'Keefe told reporters at
the National Press Club in Washington. "Why did the Philadelphia press
report were we kicked out?"
