    I leave the dramatics to you Mellie. So did you watch the videos i listed above? Several investigations have thus far stated that Okeefe heavily edited the videos to fit an agenda.

    As I've already said, I've seen ALL the videos. I'll ask again....are you saying no ACORN employees tried to help a supposed prostitute to cheat on her taxes or smuggle underage girls in from other countries for a prostitution ring?

    So if you saw all the videos what exactly happened in the videos I listed above? How long did the videos last? If an ACORN worker was trying to help someone cheat on their taxes they would have told someone not to even file. Several times the employees told them they had to file and declare income. There was no underage prostitution ring. There was no setting up of one.

    Yes, they had to file income taxes and call their "business" something else in order to hide from authorities. No underage prostitutes? Selective hearing on your part. Let me find out what city that was in.

    There were no underage prostitutes. The prostitution ring did not exist. There is no code for prostitution on income taxes. If they wanted them to create fraud they would have just told her not to file and say she made no income. Again I doubt you watched the unedited tapes but rather the original tapes Okeefe released.

    Of course it didn't exist, silly. It was an undercover operation. None of it existed. ACORN employees were giving out information on how to smuggle in underage girls in order to bolster their prostitution business. You think because there wasn't really a prostitution ring that ACORN is innocent? Wow. You think they only said that because they somehow KNEW that it was an undercover operation and not real?

    P.S. Brooklyn, NY

    It was no "undercover operation" it was a kid who had an agenda to destroy ACORN from the get go even if it included editing footage to fit an agenda. This wasn't the first time he was caught doing that. A former colleague accused him in another of his stunts of cherry picking and editing quotes from a nurse at planned parenthood without providing context. Really information on how to smuggle? Where in the videos do acorn employees tell Okeefe where to find underage girls, pay their way, put them on transportation to smuggle them in the country and then set up a prostitution business? Its nowhere on those tapes. It was not real. No paperwork was filled out no crime was committed. Even then Okeefe had to push because he wasn't getting what he wanted. The unedited tapes show that. Okeefe said he was never turned away. That was a lie. He then stated one guy turned him away that also was a lie. Okeefe went on fox shows in a fake pimp costume to act as if that's how he presented himself. That is a lie.

    Okeefe is the one facing trouble with the law right now. But the ends justify the means right? It doesn't matter that the whole thing was a complete fraud as long as ACORN went down right?

    Brooklyn, NY - advice was given on how to manage an underage prostitution ring. No paperwork was filled out. Who said there was paperwork? Saying it wasn't real is ridiculous. It happened. It's all on tape. They got fired. Just because they were undercover doesn't make what the ACORN employees did okay.

    It wasn't a fraud unless you think all undercover operations are frauds. OMG! He WASN'T wearing "pimp" gear??? OMG!!! What a fraud!!!

    O'Keefe's charges were reduced after it was discovered that he wasn't tapping any phones. What a fraud all the media coverage was about O'Keefe tampering with Landrieu's phones.
