Brooklyn DA Finds ACORN Employees Did Not Commit a Crime in Pimp / Tax Evasion / Prostitution Video Scandal

the Brooklyn District Attorney found no criminal conduct from the undercover video which appeared to show ACORN employees offering advice on tax evasion and prostitution/pimping in NY. This does not mean that in the moral sense the employees did not do anything wrong, just that the laws on the books do not cover it. Founding Bloggers thinks the lack of criminality may have more to do with an inappropriate political connection of the DA to ACORN.

"ACORN employees caught on video apparently advising a couple posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend to lie about her profession and launder her earnings did not commit a crime, the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office said Monday.

The office began its investigation Sept. 15, the day after the video was released online by the conservative activists who posed as an outlaw couple seeking help buying a house. It was but one in a series of such videos filmed at ACORN offices around the country that sparked a national scandal and helped drive the organization to near ruin.


  1. there are no laws on the books covering "tax evasion and prostitution/pimping in NY"?

    haha... right. ACORN is really not our enemy bro.

    If Founding Blogger guy thinks that the DA in new york dropped the case because of a connection to the SEIU, he should just come out and say it i think rather then making a tenuous at best Mcarthy-esque conspiracy insinuation like he did. Its like saying a republican DA couldn't prosecute a republican business man because they are both republicans, that would of course be very serious accusation- if the fact they both are republicans isn't in fact tenuous, which you would probably argue in many other contexts that it is.

    I agree with him though, ACORN, and perhaps even this DA, should gather the balls to press charges (unless it means diverting resources from work that actually needs to be done):


  3. @Ian Spencer Dubrowsky - there are of course laws that cover that. I am not in the DA's head, and I do not know why he does not want to press charges.

    Watch the video though and tell me they did nothing wrong.
