ACORN has filed a lawsuit against the makers of a hidden-camera video that showed employees of its Baltimore office giving tax advice to a man posing as a pimp and a woman posing as a prostitute.

The liberal activist group contends that the audio portion of the video was obtained illegally because Maryland requires two-party consent to create sound recordings. ...

According to what I heard on the radio, ACORN was not chartered to operate in Maryland. Therefore, they and not the film makers were breaking the law.

I would ask if the leaders at ACORN are stupid but they seem to prove it every day.

Do they understand that in a lawsuit of this type they have to prove damages or liable? Sooooo, the damages are from what? Their internal corruption.

Defense will open a lot of ACORN records. Is this really what they want?

It also keeps their corruption in the news a lot longer. They are not denying that they did it they are just saying they shouldn't have been caught!

Two party consent.

The Attorney General files these cases, right Philly?

I've seen a picture of the kid who made the film, wearing sunglasses and his grandmother's old chinchilla stole. If ACORN took him for a real pimp, they should be shut down for sheer stupidity. :p

He didn't go dressed like that. He actually wore a shirt and tie. Remember he told them he had political aspirations. Now, to help out in the case I volunteered my home to hold Hannah Giles under house arrest. :D

I read somewhere that he did, and I saw a picture of him in the outfit on Glenn Beck; he looked like a kid dressed up in his grandmother's stole. I'm glad if he had the sense not to.

ACORN is going to fall back on the old, "Yous a bunch o racists!" strategy. I have found a way to counteract that that leaves them speechless. You answer being called a racist with, "No I'm not. It's just that you are a bunch of nig gers!" I say that nig ger either gets used by everybody or nobody.

Be sure to get back to us and let us know how that works out for you. :)

My ex-wife Yvette always used to say, "If you don't want to be called a nig ger, maybe you should not act like one." She is Black. Maybe this idea is over your head but then again, maybe you understand what I mean when I say, There is a difference between being a Black person and a Nig ger.

Yes, I've heard Chris Rock's routine on the subject.
