    Cuomo probes ACORN's 'brothel' affair

    Cuomo probes ACORN's 'brothel' affair
    Cuomo probe & council $$ freeze in 'brothel' affairBy BRENDAN SCOTT in Albany and SALLY GOLDENBERG in NY
    September 16, 2009

    State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo yesterday launched an investigation into pork-barrel grants given to ACORN by state lawmakers, as City Council Speaker Christine Quinn froze all city funding earmarked for the scandal-scared community-activism organization.

    The actions by the Democratic officials followed release of a shocking undercover video that showed employees at a Brooklyn ACORN office giving illicit financial advice to activists posing as a pimp and prostitute who wanted to start a brothel.

    The agency was among several ACORN affiliates, including offices in Baltimore, Washington and San Bernardino, Calif., exposed in the hidden-camera sting.

    On Monday, the US Senate voted overwhelmingly to block federal funding to the community group, while Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes opened an investigation into the local office in response to a report in The Post.

    The main stream media may be ignoring this story, but at least not everyone is.

    Looks like we've just hit the tip of the iceberg on ACORN corruption.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
