ACORN Prober Finds No Illegal Pattern On Videos

An internal investigation of ACORN by Scott Harshbarger found no pattern of intentional, illegal conduct by ACORN staffers on undercover videos. Did anyone expect anything different?

The videos of ACORN staffers offering advice to a woman and a man posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend triggered a firestorm of criticism this fall, with some ACORN employees appearing willing to support illegal schemes involving tax advice, misuse of public funds and illegal trafficking in children.

The videos “feed the impression that ACORN believes it is above the law,” stated the Harshbarger report.

“We did not find a pattern of intentional, illegal conduct by ACORN staff involved; in fact, no action, illegal or otherwise, was ever taken by any ACORN employee on behalf of the videographers,” Harshbarger said in a statement.

ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis called the report “part vindication, part constructive criticism and complete roadmap for the future” on behalf of “the interests of the communities we represent—low- and moderate-income, African-American and Latino families.”

  1. We’re not going to solve the ACORN problem merely with rhetoric. It’s going to take direct action, and a willingness to do whatever is necessary to permanently put an end to ACORN and all who support them.
