Andrew Breitbart's "Big Government" ACORN Videos, "Live from Los Angeles"

"Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's progressive friends exposed"
Ethics and ACORN may meet the definition of a Oxymoron.
But in Los Angeles, they have provided the appropiate "rent a mob" for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's photo ops for affordable housing and education reform. Some have made good money providing "chair sitters" for the mayor's AB 1381 battles in the Mayor's first term.
Now, all these connections to the progressive special interests cash and the politicians they back, may dry up after Andrew Breitbart's "Big Government Blog" latest video expose on ACORN's LA operations, and no, they did not get kicked out of the office, via the video featuring ACORN LA's Felix D. Harriss.
But "OLD GRAY WESTSIDE HAG ON SPRING STREET" scribe James Rainey, may have some explaining to do. This courtesy of veteran LA Times observer "Patterico" at Patterico's Pontifications.
Oh yes, and I should also mention this. O’Keefe says in the video above: “Felix Harris was the only ACORN employee in our nationwide investigation who would not assist us [in] obtain[ing] a house for our illegal activities.”
The only one? But didn’t James Rainey of the L.A. Times tell us that an ACORN employee in Los Angeles named Lavelle Stewart talked to Giles and O’Keefe?
Why, yes! Yes, he did. And Rainey implied that ACORN employee Stewart refused to help Giles and O’Keefe. Which certainly seems inconsistent with O’Keefe’s unambiguous declaration today.
Just trying to connect the dots . . .
Well, I guess we’ll have to wait for the next shoe to drop. I have this feeling it’s going to drop right on James Rainey’s head.
This from the same "Old Gray Westside Hag on Spring Street" who failed to correct the fact that Occidental College Professor Peter Dreier, who penned a Op-ed on ACORN for the Times, was a consultant to ACORN.
Makes you go hmmmm.....
Here are the links to Big Government's ACORN LA videos.
Part One, "The LA Story"
Part Two, "We knew we were gonna put Obama in"
Part Three "ACORN Employee of the Year, Felix D. Harris"
Your thoughts.........................
But tonight, biggovernment.com offered praise for a worker at an ACORN facility in Los Angeles, saying he (Felix Harris) refused to bite when they came to the Wilshire Boulevard office with their faux business. And, yes, they have it all on tape.
Said O'Keefe: "Although he did not kick us out, he was the only employee in our nationwide ACORN child prostitution investigation who would not assist us."
And visits to other ACORN offices have gone almost entirely unmentioned. Lavelle Stewart, a fair-housing coordinator in the group's Los Angeles office, told me this week that she tried to get the "prostitute," who claimed she had been beaten by her pimp, to go to a women's center.
"The fact she was not taking the help I offered her made me think something was not right," Stewart said. "It raised a red flag."
Maybe the "Westside White Guy" can straighten out these contrary statements of facts??
"There is a lot of misinformation about home buying in the community and many people feel vulnerable to being taken advantage of," said Felix Harris, Programs Director, ACORN Housing, "Today there are many more homeownership opportunities and flexibility in home buying than ever before. It is our job to better inform people, for example, to let them know that a 20 percent down payment is no longer an industry standard."
Is that the smoke from the barrel of ACORN's role, with Freddie Mac, in the collapse of the housing market, that I smell??

Acorn needs to be thoroughly investigated by the District Attorney. I think that we would all be surprised by the breadth and depth of this corruption. This is one of the biggest reasons that we must pass laws require an I.D. in order to vote. This is a simple step that would greatly cut down on election fraud. I don't understand how anyone can be against this. Showing an I.D. is a small price to pay to root out election fraud.

I'm more concerned about the election fraud that occurred in Florida under Jeb Bush. You'd have a lot more credibility if you were fired up about that.

What the hell does Florida have to do with election fraud in California. Florida happened due to the use of ballot that was defective. Those ballots are no longer used. We have better ballots know. So that problem is solved.

I am talking about people voting using other people's names or claiming that they are registered in a district and issued provisional ballots. People who are registering fictitious people to vote. Acorn has been accused of this recently and are being investigated by several states, most notably Louisiana.

Now it all makes sense. That is how the mayor and Ed Reyes got elected.

This is a bigger story. This should be investigated.
