ACORN to take strong action

Further to my recent postings about the video evidence of the various misdeeds of sundry ACORN officials I was pleased to learn that ACORN would be taking legal action. I was less pleased when I read that:
"Former employees of the beleaguered community activist group ACORN are planning to file a criminal complaint in Baltimore against the creators of the series of videos that have spurred outrage against the organization, knowledgable sources have told Investigative Voice.

The filing could come as soon as Friday afternoon, sources said.

The criminal complaint will allege that recordings of the group’s employees giving advice on how to evade taxes and house underage South American sex workers to journalists posing as a pimp and prostitute were obtained illegally.

The criminal complaint is expected to name both James O’Keefe, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, along with the owner of the website Breitbart, which initially released the videos.

ACORN is also contemplating a civil suit seeking an injunction aginst O’Keefe and Giles to prevent them from distributing the videos, according to an an email."
That sounds about right for a group like ACORN.
