    Calif. AG Says ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws

    Finally some transparency from a Liberal, but not from Obama. We can see right through this, as it is was no surprise that Jerry Hussein Brown would come up with basically nothing really bad to say about ACORN.

    He wants what ever form they take after they restructure after dissolving their current incarnation to help him get elected Governor by registering illegal aliens and dead people so they can vote for the idiot.

    It was almost a shock when Arnold Hussein Schwarzenegger RINO without a cause asked for what turned out to be a Fake investigation of ACORN, because Arnold is looking for a job with the Amateur in Chief who's not sane, Obama once we get to say bye bye to the Guy who is in a three way tie for worst Governor in State history.

    I almost forgot the tie is with Jerry H. Brown and Grey Davis.

    Too bad Pete Wilson is in his late 70s.

    FOXNews.com - Calif. AG Says ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California Attorney General Jerry Brown determined Thursday that ACORN broke no criminal laws, after reviewing videotapes that sparked a recent political firestorm.

    Brown's office said it would not pursue charges against the now-defunct community organizing group. But it said ACORN engaged in inappropriate behavior that may prompt other state agencies to take a look, such as dumping 500 pages of confidential records into the trash and failing to file a state tax return.

    "A few ACORN members exhibited terrible judgment and highly inappropriate behavior in videotapes obtained in the investigation," Brown said in a statement. "But they didn't commit prosecutable crimes in California."

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger asked Brown last year to investigate ACORN after employees were seen in video segments appearing to advise a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute.

    ACORN staff told the couple to lie about the woman's profession to get financial help.

    The hidden-camera videos created a political firestorm when they were released, and tarnished the once-mighty ACORN, which stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. The organization folded last month.
    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    I may have to change that to; "Those who stand for nothing fall for Obama's BS."

    Re: Calif. AG Says ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws

    With more than one law enforcement group reviewing the material and finding no criminal activity, did it ever occur to you that maybe they're the ones who are right?

    The unedited tapes paint a completely different picture of events than the ones they released. You should watch/listen to them/read the transcripts.

    While ACORN members may have engaged in highly unethical behavior, that doesn't mean that it was criminal. Being talked into condoning criminal action isn't a crime. Also, it should be noted that the guy was absurdly deceptive about what really happened, including instances when ACORN called the cops on him. I am glad that ACORN is getting its funding removed by the government, but criminal charges are not appropriate.

    You should listen to the full audio. Even "highly unethical" is a stretch. The house the two were pretending to want a loan for was pitched as an escape from prostitution for both the girl in the video and the underage girls they spoke of.

    Would you like to back your moronic rant with a fact-based legal analysis or what?

    I mean, tell us, why (in your mind) was it 'fake'. Because it didn't come to the conclusion you wanted it to? Because your masters at Fox News have you so pathetically brain washed that you hear ACORN and you mess your pants in fear... The big bad ACORN boogey man is coming to get you...

    Be afraid, be very afraid...(or your own lack of critical thinking skills)

    You have to understand, to some people, "unbiased" means "agrees with me."

    O'Keefe lied. He wasn't dressed as a pimp, but as a law student. The concept he sold to Fox and other right leaning media, was a hoax they all bought into without question because they wanted to believe it.

    Again, there are legitimate political arguments to be made challenging Democrats and liberals. Why do they have make stuff up?

    Re: Calif. AG Says ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws

    Liberals inability to have cogent thoughts persist and abound. It is amazing they can ive from day to day and not be run over by a bus they see coming.

    Obama has made so many mistakes backed by people whoa re unable to think for themselves it gets down right frightening.

    Obams has been called brilliant and I agree that he is the most brilliant lying person in history since the 1930s.

    What is more incredible is people who would claim to be educated past the 3rs grade continue to worship him knowing the son of a beatch lies about just about every thing he says, Like doctor amputate limbs for fun and profit. Almost nothing the SOB says it true, and yet his disciples follow him as if he were an honest human rather than a lying scum bag.

    When the idiot liberals finally catch on they too will be victims of the Socialist/Marxist agenda this anti-American has in store for all of us and the will see that they have been made fools of.

    Re: Calif. AG Says ACORN Broke No Criminal Laws

    acorn is corrupt and criminal, even registering tens of thousands of fake voters is against the law, remember?

    and just why do you think they were so aggressively registering tens of thousands of fake voters in battleground states?

    just so the homeless folks faking the reg's could earn higher bonuses?

    LOL!

    acorn was all over subprime---most of washington has smudged filthy fingerprints on that particular balloon which precipitated our POP, from messieurs dead dodd and bawney fwank to president george double-u what's-his-name

    but at least all those currently and formerly and soon-to-be formerly pol's have smatterings of sense sufficient to try to deny involvement

    not the red t-shirts, they were still lining up outside banks in december, chanting in angry unision, "lend to us, lend to us"

    jerry brown is moonbeam and he worked hard to become moonbeam

    he's the son of pat, the 2 time governor of my state who was replaced by dear ronnie in 66

    moonbeam then succeeded reagan in 74

    moonbeam is an ex jesuit seminarian, which says a lot

    john mclaughlin is a former seminarian, very head-in-the-clouds, very abstruse...

    guys like that make harvard law professors turned community organizers appear positively pragmatic

    moonbeam was a rabid environmentalist as gub, waged a wicked war with shell, and of course he was loud about the war in nam

    he was linda rondstadt's "boyfriend," except moonbeam's private life has always been very private

    except he lived in a cheap apt in sacto instead of the gub's big house, and he drove to work everyday in an old plymouth

    prop 13 kicked his ass, he was pretty much outta here after that

    rose bird was a disgrace, an embarrassment, an outrage

    and the medfly ate his lunch

    he tried to be a senator but lost to pete wilson

    so he ran for prez a couple times, his campaigns a little populism, a little zen

    protect the earth and explore the universe, stuff like that

    some really weird tv commercials (directed by coppola)

    a little too jane fonda for the rest of the country

    so he went to japan to study the buddha

    came back to be mayor of oakland while the kids continued to kill each other, so he turned a hi school into a military academy

    now he's ag and he's done this

    he's currently running for governor vs ms whitman, ebay ceo

    moonbeam's a really bad candidate, y'know, for serious times like these

    To echo Gina's sentiment, if this is all true, why do conservatives need to make things up?
