RICO Charges Warranted Against ACORN?

With four videos of ACORN employees in from different branches in different states offering advice on how to get away with child prostitution and tax evasion (first Berman Post: ACORN Employees in Baltimore Give Advice to Pimp on Tax Evasion And Child Prostitution, second Berman Post: ACORN Employees in DC Give Advice to Pimp on Tax Evasion And Prostitution, third Berman Post: ACORN Employees in NY Give Advice to Pimp on Tax Evasion And Prostitution, fourth Berman Post: ACORN Employee in San Bernardino (California) Give Advice to Pimp on Tax Evasion And Prostitution), are RICO charges warranted? This may have been one of the goals of the people who shot the video, or could just be another angle to keep up the pressure against ACORN.

"What’s important about prostitution and human trafficking is that they are specific triggers for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, better known as RICO. The RICO law is designed to enable the Justice Department to go after criminal enterprises. It defines “racketeering activity” as including importing illegal aliens for immoral purposes, falsifying identification documents and immigration papers, mail and wire fraud, and the sexual exploitation of children, among others.

These are all implicated on the video tapes. The ACORN workers rattle off their how-to instructions on carrying out these crimes without needing to do more than skim a couple books that they have on hand. The clear implication is that these workers are seasoned pros on how to carry out these crimes, subsidized by federal taxpayer money.

Although everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty, a RICO investigation is now warranted. There are already multiple state investigations of ACORN underway, and thirty ACORN workers have already pleaded guilty to committing crimes. Attorney General Eric Holder should immediately order a RICO investigation, while we all wait to see if more footage is forthcoming.
