The ACORN Doesn’t Fall Far From The Tree

Here’s another article and video featuring ACORN staffers — this time in Brooklyn — advising a self-proclaimed pimp and hooker on how to get a house, fail to disclose their income, and otherwise game the system to set up a house of prostitution.   This is the third ACORN office, after Baltimore and Washington, D.C., in which the same “pimp” and “hooker” have found ACORN staffers perfectly willing to help them in their unlawful schemes, and from the sounds of it videos on two more ACORN offices are soon to be released.

What kind of organization is ACORN that it employs such people, who have no problem advising people how to realize their goal of engaging in illegal conduct?  The old saying is that the acorn does not fall far from the tree.  What does it say about ACORN, the national organization, when ACORN staffers in three different local offices take similarly receptive approaches to strangers proposing criminal activity?  And what does it say about ACORN that a significant part of its response, as the linked article indicates, is to threaten the individuals who exposed how its staffers improperly conduct ACORN business with some kind of lawsuit?
