Acorn Cracked

Today on his radio show and website, Glenn Beck discussed a breaking story about a Baltimore office of ACORN that was caught on video, offering tax evasion advise to a couple who presented themselves as a pimp and prostitute and were not certain about how to present their lack of legitimate income. Head on over to Left Coast Rebel's page and check out the two videos he's posted along with his summary of the situation, as well as some other links offering more information. Also check Glenn's site (linked above) for a transcript of the discussion Glenn and his radio crew had with the young lady who chose to play a role in this exposure of corrupt activity.

As I came in from work and logged on, I found this story on The Drudge Report, which details the fact that two ACORN employees have now been fired as a result of the exposure of their corruption, which also ran on Fox News Channel. Megyn Kelly, while discussing this issue on The O'Reilly Factor, said that at this time she sees no illegal activity in the tape she has viewed.

In a statement, ACORN Maryland board member Margaret Williams said the video was an attempt to smear ACORN, and that undercover teams attempted similar setups in at least three other ACORN offices.

No sign of this story on Huffington Post, Daily Kos, or Talking Points Memo.
MSNBC had a small link in its "Other Top Stories."

Tammy, you know better than to think I'm surprised, I'm sure?

Just the facts, Ma'am. Just the facts...lol...

Rebel - thanks for the linkback, and the offer to send some traffic.

Of course, being a Conservative, I only want your traffic if they come on their own free will. No mandated visits will be permitted!

I'm having a good time at it, fo sho - , and I know I have an impact. I have Tammy and a few of her friends as a great testament to the fact that I'm readable and then some...

Anyhoo - thanks again, and you too keep up the good fight, strength in numbers, my good man...

I was lucky enough to be listening to Beck...and I laughed the rest of the day....I hear chickens coming home to roost....

Steve -

Beck was a riot yesterday. Rush has really been on his game too - I suspect Beck is rekindling Rush's spark a bit. It's really great when they get together on Beck's show, you can hear Rush's true admiration for Beck's work, and Rush seems to have some extra pep in his step lately.

The way Beck is playing with the ACORN issue is classic. The blatant sarcasm - "Wait... it gets worse?" or "They didn't go there, did they" is so simple yet gut-bustingly funny.

i think your acorn/obama family tree schematic lays it out pretty clear.

j summ - pretty neat, huh? I found it on a Google search. I really like the sentence at the bottom - there's your Obama-ACORN story in a nutshell..
