"Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's progressive friends exposed"
Ethics and ACORN may meet the definition of a Oxymoron.
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.
Makes you go hmmmm.....
Here are the links to Big Government's ACORN LA videos.

"ACORN Employee of the Year, Felix D. Harris"
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."
"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??
