UPDATE Sept 24: Unintended Consequences of Congress Acting to De-fund ACORN:
[C]ontractors that “might be caught in the ACORN net. . .
Did you know that Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman had 20 fraud cases between them? And that your Congress didn’t care?
[Blackwater, Halliburton and] taxpayer-funded contractor DynCorp — its employees actually, LITERALLY, did service a prostitution ring . . .Girls between the ages of 12 and 15 were involved. . . . six years later, employees of the very same contractor went to Iraq and DID IT AGAIN! And this time somebody got killed.
. . .DynCorp is still “supporting U.S. interests worldwide.”
The only reason the American people have earned a potential tool in guarding against contractor fraud is because Congress created it BY ACCIDENT.
. . .This is a moment the media should seize.
Journalism may not be the oldest profession but it once was more honorable than this. If you think ACORN employees were shamelessly manipulating our democracy, check out a young woman who wasn’t just playing a role but actually degrading herself and her employers for hire and got caught on secret video . . .she hasn’t been fired though, just “disciplined” whatever that means in the world of public prostitution.
