ACORN Employees Will Not Be Charged With Any Crime, NY Prosecutor Concludes

March 9, 2010 by  

ACORN employees will not be charged with any crime, NY prosecutor concludes Following a five-month investigation, employees from the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) who were caught on video reportedly offering advice on how to cheat on taxes and loan applications to a couple posing as a prostitute and a pimp have been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said last week.

Republicans have long accused the controversial anti-poverty group of widespread corruption and voter registration fraud, and have suggested that the organization has close ties to the current administration.

Shortly after the investigation began, Congress voted by a wide margin to cut off federal funding to ACORN, although that decision is currently being disputed in court.

Meanwhile, several of the organization’s offices have disbanded and resumed operations under new names and with similar staffs, Fox News Reports.

Although the two employees have been cleared, ACORN is still under federal investigation for fraud and corruption.

Kurt Bardella, spokesman for Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), said that the federal inquiry "will expose the criminal nature of ACORN’s deliberate effort to abuse taxpayer dollars to advance a radical political agenda," according to the news source.

    I wonder why a 5 month long investigation was needed when the video clearly showed what the ACORN employees were doing. If what they were doing wasn’t wrong, then there is no difference between right and wrong. The Brooklyn DA should be tarred and feathered and run out of town. I guess the president is real proud of him.

        Yeah! Right!! We can’t believe our eyes and ears.

      • Joe H.

        I wonder who needs more proof that government is corrupt???

      • cr747

        I knew Obama,,Bloomberg,,and others would get the charges dropped.. Now you know how crooked our Washington Cronies really are.. It is definitely time we let them know that we will not tolerate dropping charges on such a horrific crime,,and that if it where,”We The People,”who do pay our taxes,,and live by the rules would be fined,,and go to prison for a while..

        This is getting completely out of hand..We need to write,,phone,,and e-mail the one’s serving our State and District,,and let them know we are tired of the double standards that they are pushing on all of us.. It is so sickening every time I see Obama show his MUG on TV or see it in the paper along with some of the others that are breaking the LAWS of The Constitution that our FOREFATHERS established for,,”We The People..”It is time we let them know enough is enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • J C

      And corruption continues to run rampant…

    • Harold Olsen

      I wonder if he’s an ACCORN supporter. He not only should be run out of town and tarred and feathered he should be disbarred.

      You said it, Jack! Nothing like blatant corruption with a P.S. Thumbnosing. This is exactly why people are so angry now.

  • DaveH

    It’s unbelievable to me how the Democrats swarmed Richard Nixon (I never liked that man, though) over the Watergate Break-In, and yet turn a blind eye to the rampant corruption that surrounds the current administration.
    Come to think of it, it is believable, as anybody who can blatantly grab the money of others and lie like they do is capable of anything.

    Here is yet another example of the corruption:

    • judyavelsor

      The judiciary ? Tell us all who is corrupt. the friends? the family? the Government? Disgusting. The DA . There are more thieves out than in. Acorn is just one in many. Come on give us all their new names list them ON THE DOLLAR BILL. Never look up to anyone . You only find out when they are standing they are lower than the curb. A worm.One never knows. Odd isn’t it we never know the true side of people. Yeah things are so bad ya’ gotta do a background check on your teacher or
      The clergy. . . Give a little they take a lot. Speaking of “Lot” “you know what happened to his wife”

      You cannot tell your Reps. anything. “Most” do not listen. Brain dead or stone deaf.

      • Fed Up Gal in NM


        Yes, unfortunately few “leaders” in public office display any integrity whatsoever; in fact…I’m not sure they ever learned the definition of the word. What a waste of flesh and gray matter. That’s why we have to show them we’re serious….vote ‘em out(for good)!

        • Mike In MI

          They’re so blatant about it. I sometimes wonder if they have the deal rigged to arrogate perpetual power? Every minute they run the country the stench in Washington, District of Corruption gets more unbearable. It seems to emanate from the Offal Orifice in the Out House and, also, Capitulate Hell where the Sin-it and Hows of Reprehensibles do their business.

          OOPs! Got to go. The Dawgs want out to do their business.

  • cerebus23

    lest if the right does not skrew up, they will have a few more seats in congress to keep an eye on these investigations as it were.

    acorn on the federal payroll would be like having the christian right on the federal payroll for voter enrollment. cept i doubt the christian right would be pressuring banks to give loans, voters to vote for one specific candidate, child prostitution, tax fraud, voter fraud, etc etc.

    no group should be on the federal payroll that has a political outlook when it comes to voter duties, just too much opportunity for for mischief period.

    • Conservative Carl

      Somebody has bought into the lies from the socialists in power about the Christian “right”. As an evangelical Christian I have no desire to impose my religion on anyone or tell anyone they had to vote a certain way. The Christian “right” wants the freedom to worship, to vote, to assemble peacefully, to have these freedoms for ourselves and for others who have different views.
      Too few people realize that those with Marxist views have had some influence in our government for decades but have gained much more influence in the last two years. ACORN is only a small part of the problem and they will be protected by the current administration that is loaded with Marxists and humanists.

        • Joe H.

          Hey, we now hear from an ACORN employee!!!!

          • Fed Up Gal in NM

            Joe H,

            Yep; you’re probably right…and probably back on the Census team again now. Speaking of Census…I got my warm and fuzzy census docs today; have not even opened the envelope. I took my sweet time last time (1-2 years ago…for that “random” out of 10-yr cycle Census). I’m just about tired of providing any more info. I have no trust the info will even be used for legitimate purposes….probably to “fund” more dollars for illegals, ACORN (same thing in my book), CZARS (same thing in my book), educational benefits for prisoners (hmmmm…same thing in my book).

            Last time, they called me at work and at home…because I did not submit the form. They called several times and sent follow-up “you better” letters, over several months. I finally said…”So…..what if I don’t complete the form? The agent said “Well…we might come to your home or work and do an interview with you”, and “if you refuse you should know you can go to jail”. I said…”well, you better plan on coming to work, because my gate is locked and unless you plan to scale my 6-foot gate to get access to my courtyard and front door…you might want to come up with another game plan”. After much hem-hawing around, I said “I’ll complete the none of your business form when I get time and put it back in snail mail when I get more time”. So I took about 2 more months filling out the 10 page or so form and mailed back. If I was already retired, I would consider not sending it to just see if the thugs would actually follow-through and put me in jail. The problem right now is, I need my paycheck to make my mortgage payment and pay my other responsibilities…so I’m not really keen on pushing it right now. I will however take my sweet time again this year!

    I think the “investigators” are also ACORN employees or are getting kickbacks from BHO. This smells of Chicago style politics!

      Perhaps the only way to get rid of them is the Chicago Way as well.

  • Raggs

    As long as obama is involved with acorn they will get away with it.

    Here we go again. Most people who have and use common sense know what’s going on with this topic. ACORN, that septic tank of anarchists and subhuman trash, is doing its best to tell America that it’s “OK” to be pimps. It’s “OK” to tell people how to cheat on taxes [where's the IRS?] and cut corners on loan applications.
    Geepers! Does this mean that America’s compassionate and loving, ultraliberal progressives have once again taken the high ground when it comes to morality and accountability?
    No, what it means is that ultraliberal progressives and their role models [Obummer, Motormouth Joe, nancy, chris, charlie, barney, pat, and all the rest have all the common sense and morals of a manure pile.
    IF we had a real attorney general and IF we had leaders in the White House and Congress, we’d expect an entirely different outcome. This is predictability at its WORST, America.
    OK, weasels, explain yourselves. You multi-faced twits who infest this web site with your ‘do what thou wilt’ philosophy again have a chance to try and whitewash your anti-American, freedom-hating ways. Bring it on, you miserable, useful idiots!

    Dems always use double standrads. At present, with the health care issue, simple majority is no problem. Obbamee was having such a fit when dems weren’t in majorities, but in the reversal of powers, then it doesn’t matter. Durning other rep. President’s administrations, dem. run their mouths about how wrong it is, but willuse the manuvor. if they get the chance. The math dems use is always a joke. Every program promoted by the Washington dreamers, the theories never work out, it is always 4 times costly than projected. But since history isn’t taught in schools, and the attention span of 5 minutes, the people who vote, use their 3rd grade training the gives us this tpye of government. Dems always revert to the past play books in rigging elections with groups of their thugs. It was a standrad operating proceedure durning Tamminy Hall days. Dems are just like shunks, cann’t change their stripes and always stink up the area.

  • Marc Jeric

    Abu Hussein from Kenya, our Community Organizer-in-Chief, is the top boss of ACORN brownshirts – his system of local soviets, in charge of giving phony mortgages to “underserved minorities” and of voter fraud. So why the surprise about this coverup?

  • Time

    Can anyone say Mob style?
    Thats what our court system is now, it has lost all its value.

    I ask this simple question why is it that the Justice Dept. is not going after Barrys BC. Thats their job based on what the written law states.

    Yet they along with Perkins & Cole and the Federal court system have held all questions of Barry’s BC off with no rational nor legal reason’s at all.

    Whats that say about our “COURT SYSTEM?”

  • Merl Elton

    Powerful poltics in favor of the Democratic party are in force in denying fault where it is obvious. To deny what is clear and can be verifed says a lot about the democrats. I pity the poor Acorn exposers; perhaps they should leave the country.

  • Merl Elton

    Acorn is a haven for riff raff. This is the administration of riff raff, thugs, you name it.

  • mv

    Umm, really, Acorn, who counts no votes, is involved in registration fraud…. people this is bullshit. If I fraudulently fill out a voter form with Mickey Mouse, it is not Acorn that is at fault it is the person filling it out. I would be engaging in voter registration fraud, like Darnell Nash, who was charged. Darnell has no affiliation with Acorn other than he submitted his form thru them…. guilt by association…

    Acorn is required BY LAW to submit ALL voter registration forms no matter how many Mickey Mouses are in there. Besides, if you read any of the reports, Acorn submitted them in the “possible fraudulent” pile of submitted forms.

    Now on to the pimp story. O’keefe did not dress up as a pimp, and the video were heavily edited…. epic failure from a sorry ideology.

    Even rupert Murdocks NY Post tried to come clean sort off… read the comments by the “conservatives”

    Here are the facts.

    Voter registration is were you fill out a form with false information and submit it to a register.

    Voter fraud is were you knowingly vote with a fraudulent voter card out of district, with false information on election day. Ann Coulter was guilty of this in 2004 in FL and received no penalty…

    Election fraud is what went on in FL in 200 and Ohio in 2004.

    More information…

    The bottom line is this, that Acorn enfranchises poor people. Poor people do not vote republican. Republican “news” outlets need boogie men like communist, socialists, terrorists and liberals to project and scapegoat, without boogie men, republicans have no agenda.

    You cannot run your campaign promises to enrich 1% of the citizens at the expense of the bottom 95% and win elections.

  • Sunshine

    OK all you people in N.Y. NOW is the time to get that district attorney OUT of that office. This is corruption at its highest and
    this office has evidently received lots of moola for their decisions on this known by all, corrupt group.
    Also, tell your reps that you dont want this ACORN given any of our tax payer money, which helps them continue with their evil practices. Come on people, use your voices and emails to let them know how you feel. Spouting here just doesnt do the thing of getting rid of these corrupt officials. TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES in D.C. and locally.

    I know what IRS should Audit every Acorn wanna be. That will teach them to give advice. Poor people at acorn . Don’t you feel sorry for them. It is like Jesus . No room for the good at the inn. Only scum need apply. Spell corrupt C_O_R_R_U_P_T_ and than some. They help the whores get a house but poor live in the forest !
    Whore is not listed on the application. A Mom with 3 kids needs a home . . . but they will help the pimp / how cute is that.

    • Harold Olsen

      No way is the IRS gong to audit ACCORN. The IRS is part of the corruption. They find that you’ve made a mistake on your income tax and they’ll wait three or four years before they notify you and then you have to pay the interest for those three or four years that they waited. I’m speaking from person experience. Plus, they’ll be used to enforce Obamacare when it is passed. You’ll have to declare on your tax form whether or not you have a GOVERNMENT APPROVED heathcare and if you don’t you get a fine or go to jail, or both. This agency should be abolished.

    • zack

      judyavelsor they have to have the ladies of the street corners and of course the pimps or mayor Bloomberg and his people wouldn’t have any place to take Obama and all in the whitehouse when they visit NY, and of course Bloombergs cronies wouldn’t have anything to do on their off time. Maybe that’s why all those from Washington visit NY frequently Bloomberg might be getting all his money from these ladies, he might be one of their pimps. hehe

    All I can add is “DITTO” to all the above. Support the November ’10 revolution.


    It’s plain to see that the MSM is not going to be of any use for the pursuit of any unethical exposure of any organization affiliated with the Jackass Party, this includes ACORN,SEIU ad nauseum of all the lib leftist activities involved in trying to disrupt the laws and values of this nation. These are jr communist organizations for the most part and legal entities such as the SPC and ACLU are going to protect them from all investigations and prosecutions. THe idea that no charges are being brought or fines imposed on ACORN even with the hard evidence at hand is not surprising or unexpected.

    When the November elections come due, these known groups will team up with non citizen groups and illegals to compromise your ballot box by doing their level best to stuff your vote and make it invalid. You will be accosted, intimidated and pressured to either not vote or change your vote and much of it will take place at the precint where you plan to cast your vote. Chnaces are this activity will again be given a free pass and no legal action will result.

  • Stephaan

    No surprise here!
    A corrupt liberal prosecutor, from a corrupt liberal city within the largest corrupt liberal city in America, with coaching and pressure from O’liar and his thug czars in the white house.
    Judging from past performance, did anybody really expect a different outcome?

  • JackH

    The prosecutor stated that the video tapes that were broadcast on TV were not authentic but had been altered. Thus, what actually happened was not one and the same as was presented in the clips shown on TV.

    It seems that if you are interested in the truth then you would not be jumping to conclusions about the prosecutor’s ethics but instead demanding that the original tapes be released to the public so that anyone could view them along with the clips played on TV so you could know for sure whether the prosecutor was wrong or the film maker committed a fraud against all of us.

    If the original tapes are not released, I guess we will have to wait and see what the outcome of Acorn’s suit against the film maker.

    • Warrior

    • s c

      J Edward, while you’re on the sanity topic, I’d like to have two short, quick answers. Did the prosecutor take 5 months to conclude that the tapes had been altered? Did he confirm or deny that employees at the ACORN office are in the habit of telling people how to be pimps or learn how to avoid the IRS or fudge on a loan application?
      If New York may or may not investigate matters thoroughly, they might as well pick names out of a phone book and tell America what happened via a stellar publication similar to what you see on the way out of a grocery store. This may be social justice, it but also reeks of Chicago-style, pig sty ‘justice.’

    Acorn, LaRaza, Black Apes, or any other group of liberal leaning groups will never be held to the same rules as all law abiding people of the USA, reguardless of race to origin. When will Americans wake up, the group of thugs and cavanous dems all work in unision. Idoits voted for a change and revamping society, well it is just starting. I will laugh when the interest rates hit hyper inflations and massive taxes roll in. Make sure you tag all the dip headed morons who were dreaming how wonderful it would be if Oidoit was elected.

    When WW III Started – 1979

    This is not very long, but very informative You have to read the catalogue of events in this brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position that all we have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, reset the snooze alarm, go back to sleep, and no one will ever bother us again. In case you missed it, World War III began in November 1979…

    US Navy Captain Ouimette is the Executive Officer at Naval Air Station, Pensacola , Florida . Here is a copy of the speech he gave last month. It is an accurate account of why we are in so much trouble today and why this action is so necessary.


    That’s what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been ‘Get Out of Bed!’ In fact, the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.

    It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran . This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world’s most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency The attack on this sovereign U. S. Embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 25 years.

    America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Vietnam experience and had a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America’s inability to deal with terrorism

    America ‘s military had been decimated and down sized since the end of the Vietnam War. A poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly organized military was called on to execute a complex mission that was doomed from the start.

    Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and killed throughout the Middle East . America could do little to protect her citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued.

    In April of 1983 a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into the US Embassy compound in Beirut When it explodes, it kills 63 people The alarm went off again and America hit the Snooze Button once more.

    Then just six short months later in 1983 a large truck heavily laden down with over 25 00 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps headquarters in Beirut and 241 US servicemen are killed. America mourns her dead and hit the Snooze Button once more.

    Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait , and America continues her slumber.

    The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gate of the US Embassy in Beirut and America slept.

    Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe . In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid

    Then in August 1985 a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the main gate of the US Air Force Base at Rheine-Main, 22 are killed and the snooze alarm is buzzing louder and louder as US interests are continually attacked.

    Fifty-nine days later in 1985 a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and we watched as an American in a wheelchair is singled out of the passenger list and executed.

    The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986 that killed 4 and the most tragic bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie , Scotland in 1988, killing 259.

    The wake up alarm is getting louder and louder.

    The terrorists decide to bring the fight to America . In January 1993, two CIA agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley , Virginia

    The following month, February 1993 , a group of terrorists are arrested after a rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking garage of the World Trade Center in New York City . Six people are killed and over 1000 are injured. Still this is a crime and not an act of war? The Snooze alarm is depressed again.

    Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women.

    A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards from the US military compound in Dhahran , Saudi Arabia . It destroys the Khobar Towers , a US Air Force barracks, killing 19 and injuring over 500. The terrorists are getting braver and smarter as they see that America does not respond decisively.

    They move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania . These attacks were planned with precision. They kill 224. America responds with cruise missile attacks and goes back to sleep.

    The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden, Yemen for refueling on 12 October 2000 , when a small craft pulled along side the ship and exploded killing 17 US Navy Sailors. Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war, but we sent the FBI to investigate the crime and went back to sleep.

    And of course you know the events of 11 September 2001. Most Americans think this was the first attack against US soil or in America . How wrong they are. America has been under a constant attack since 1979 and we chose to hit the snooze alarm and roll over and go back to sleep.

    In the news lately we have seen lots of finger pointing from every high official in government over what they knew and what they didn’t know. But if you’ve read the papers and paid a little attention I think you can see exactly what they knew. You don’t have to be in the FBI or CIA or on the National Security Council to see the pattern that has been developing since 1979.

    I think we have been in a war for the past 25 years and it will continue until we as a people decide enough is enough. America needs to ‘Get out of Bed’ and act decisively now. America has been changed forever. We have to be ready to pay the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life continues. We cannot afford to keep hitting the snooze button again and again and roll over and go back to sleep.

    After the attack on Pearl Harbor , Admiral Yamamoto said ‘… it seems all we have done is awakened a sleeping giant.’ This is the message we need to disseminate to terrorists around the world.

    This is not a political thing to be hashed over in an election year, this is an AMERICAN thing. This is about our Freedom and the Freedom of our children in years to come.

    If you believe in this please forward it to as many people as you can especially to the young people and all those who dozed off in history class and who seem so quick to protest such a necessary military action. If you don’t believe it, just delete it and go back to sleep.
