    Question for anyone who knows law better than I:

    If the suit against the filmakers goes through and they are found guilty of violating the ACORN worker's rights, doesn't that make their videos inadmissible in court?

I would be embarrassed too.

    No actually the State and Local Police Unions are very worried about this if it goes to court and it's ruled that they(The Video Folks) did violated this LAw then it will open up a flood of Court Case to have undercover stuff thrown out.

    GD you don't live in Maryland I do and have been following this whole thing everyday hell between Shelia Dixon and this it's all we every hear about here in Charm City.

    The videos won't matter, either way. The damage that will be done to ACORN with the complete exposure of their books will be irreversable. ACORN won't go through with this suit, besides the Libbo politicians that are in bed with ACORN won't let it happen.

    In Maryland yes the other States no since none of the other State have such a Law.

    I can't wait until ACORN has to open all the closets. There's no telling what skeletons are going to fall out.

    Not sure if he can I can say this some of the Democrat in Baltimore are wishing this would go away because it will open up some major book of worms.

    Not sure if you knw about are beloved Mayor Shelia Dixon well she is up on quite allot of Federal Charges and one item that keeps come up is her involvment with the local ACORN. If they do go to court it could force ACORN to reveal items about certain activities that Mayor Dixon may or may not have been involved with.
