The audio of the ACORN worker is edited for legal reasons, ie the ACORN lawsuit no doubt…GOP Reps. McCotter and King attended the tape release at the NationalPressClub.

Breitbart tv to release video of the ACORN Philly office up to shenanigans shortly…h/t Ace HQ

Fox News: “ACORN representatives claim James and Hannah were kicked out of Philadelphia,” Andrew Breitbart said in a statement prior to the 9:30 a.m. ET news conference. “They also said publicly that, unlike Baltimore, Washington D.C., Brooklyn, San Bernardino (Calif.) and San Diego, James and Hannah never even mentioned prostitution before they were told to leave. James and Hannah will be joining me to set the record straight. After Wednesday, everyone will know what really happened in Philly.”

Update: ACORN sues Breitbart and the Dynamic Duo of O’Keefe and Giles: PDF of complaint…

Update: NRO reader and attorney concurs with MiM’s assessment of broad discovery for defendant’s Breitbart, Giles and O’Keefe. Show us da books baby! (both sets!, lol)

Third, with a little bit of careful thought, the defendants could plead some interesting counterclaims. The federal False Claims Act and RICO come to mind, and would be very interesting.

Fourth, even if the defendants don’t plead any counterclaims, the scope of discovery against ACORN will be incredibly broad, as it almost always is in civil litigation. ACORN has far, far more to lose from what could come out during discovery than what they are asking for in this suit.

Here is the PDF of the complaint and demand for jury trial. ACORN is suing as a group incorporated in LA and the two fired MD employees are also suing. The defendants named include Breitbart, LLC as well as O’Keefe and Giles for their work exposing ACORN corruption in the expose series for Big Government.com.

They want 500k for each fired employee, 1 million for ACORN, 1 thousand for each Plaintiff, by which I wonder if they mean each of the 500,000 ACORN members they claim to represent in the complaint, plus 1 million in punitive damages from each of the three defendants AND an immediate RESTRAINING ORDER TO STOP AIRING OF THE TAPES

I think the last part is key. This is meant to put the kaibosh on airing the rest of the tapes. I am hopeful they have more on the HUD Grants ACORN gets and the mortgage fraud they allegedly perpetrate.

To put on an affirmative defense, since ACORN dragged their schtick ‘we represent 500k low income people’, yada yada, and asked for 1k for each ACORN employee, PLUS asked for punitives,  can’t subpoenas duces tacum fly? Can’t discovery provide some clarity into the opaque ACORN maze of ‘shell’ corporations and track the federal money?


Acorn — the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — filed a lawsuit Wednesday against conservative activists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who posed as a prostitute-and-pimp duo at a number of Acorn offices. O’Keefe and Giles posted on the Web their hidden-camera videos of Acorn employees giving them tax advice on a brothel business. The community organization is also suing Breitbart.com, which posted the videos.

In a complaint filed in Maryland’s Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Acorn says two Baltimore employees in one of the hidden-camera videos were taped without their consent in violation of Maryland law…

Update: 67% have unfavorable view of ACORN: Ace in the Hole: Breitbart on ACORN and the media

Update: Rasmussen polled on ACORN and oh boy what results!

Are the public interested, despite the virtual blackout of all coverage on network TV?

Seven-out-of-10 voters (70%) say they are following recent news stories about ACORN at least somewhat closely, with 41% following very closely. Only eight percent (8%) say they aren’t following the news about ACORN at all.

Is the investigation of ACORN a result of ‘racism’, political attacks or ACORN’s illegal activity? Hmmm?

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of all voters also believe that the ongoing criminal investigations of ACORN in several states are primarily the result of illegal behavior on the organization’s part. Twenty percent (20%) say the investigations are politically motivated, and 23% are undecided.

What do people think of ACORN? EVEN Liberals don’t like it!

Only 15% of voters now have even a somewhat favorable opinion of ACORN, while 67% have an unfavorable view of the group. Those figures include only three percent (3%) with a very favorable opinion and 47% with a very unfavorable view.

Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans, 73% of voters not affiliated with either major political party, and 44% of Democrats have an unfavorable view of ACORN.

Liberal voters are evenly divided—35% favorable and 38% unfavorable. Eighty-two percent (82%) of conservative voters give ACORN unfavorable marks along with 60% of political moderates.

Should funding be cut off? Oh yeah baby!

Fifty-one percent (51%) of U.S. voters now say Congress should end all federal funding of the controversial community organizing group ACORN.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 17% favor continued taxpayer support of the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now. Thirty-two percent (32%) are not sure

Go read the whole poll!

Breitbart of BigGovernment.com nails the PseudoElite Intellectual Media’s utter failure and their abandonment of their responsibilities to the people.

Breaking: House votes to defund ACORN…

No Soup for you ACORN!!!

Update: Publius at BG has the scoop:

Rep. Darrell Issa  (R-CA) offered the Defund-ACORN bill to the Student Loans bill.  The House vote convincingly to cut ALL federal funds to ACORN.

Vote: 345 to 75.  Complete results here.

Update: Roll Call vote courtesy of BG commenter wtfci. Ahh they added it in an Amendment to the Student Loan Bill changes?

Don’t tell me that 912 had no impact. Pelosi tried ignoring this last night as did the PseudoElite Intellectual Media. But 2 young Americans, Breitbart and the rest of the actual ‘mainstream’ media did their job. Critters saw all those Americans, and the calls are having an impact now. Righteous.

Breaking on Big Government

345 yays
75 nays?

Update: HotAir: Senate votes to strip ACORN of Federal funding!!! ACORN: No sleep til Brooklyn!

Update 7:30 EST: Here is Senator Johanns speaking on the Amendment before the vote:

Courtesy of SenJohanns:

Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduces an amendment on September 14, 2009, that would block money from the transportation and housing appropriations bill from directly or indirectly funding ACORN.

Breaking update from Ed Morrisey! HotAir (go read the whole thing for how the vote shifted on the floor):

Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to the HUD and Transportation appropriation bill to strip ACORN of all federal funding.  A week ago, Johanns wouldn’t have gotten the amendment to the floor.  Today, however, after three straight days of BigGovernment.com’s video exposés of ACORN offices in Washington DC, New York City, and Baltimore offering assistance to pimping, tax evasion, and trafficking in underage Salvadorean girls, Johanns not only got his vote — but he got an impressive bipartisan showing.  The Senate passed the Johanns amendment 83-7…

A shout out to our peeps in Bed-Sty and Red Hook!

ACORN – it’s hard out there for a pimp…

Absolutely sickening. ACORN needs to be indicted under RICO. Our Justice Dept is busy getting Andrew ‘birth truther’ Sullivan off his pot possession arrest. Who’s politicizing JUSTICE? Team TOTUS that’s who.

ACORN counter-rallies: where Freedom of Speech goes to die….

Unreal. The new M.O. seems to be to disrupt OUR rallies, and prevent our voices from being heard at all at THEIR rallies.

Here an Obamabot harasses the patriots in NY and talks down to a WWII vet, then goes nutso on other patriots, like they always do when they have no facts, they resort to ad hominem attacks:

First they send someone into  a Tucson Tea Party meeting to disrupt, and true to form he gets violent.

More ACORN shenanigans: Then they stop any other voices from being heard at  their union sponsored Pro Obamacare rallies, where they are suddenly concerned about Private Property Rights, HA! The same folks who are breaking and entering foreclosed homes don’t want private property rights infringed? BWAAAHAAA!!!
