Hell freezes over: ACORN employee refuses to aid and abet underaged prostitution

posted at 10:09 pm on November 16, 2009 by Allahpundit

Life imitates South Park once again, my friends, as a plucky young lad and his “employee” approach ACORN for assistance, only to find that their particular “community” can’t be organized. All that’s missing is Butters’s now immortal line, “But I heard ACORN helps pimps and their bitches.”

Actually, as O’Keefe himself points out, it’s not the prostitution that made this guy balk, it’s the mention of underaged girls being involved. Thank heaven for small favors. Exit question: Is this the final chapter? Patterico thinks Breitbart’s being coy, that he’s planning to drop a bomb on the LA Times columnist who took a local ACORN employee’s word at face value that no one in the LA office helped O’Keefe and Giles, but I think the long recap here means this is it.

moonbatkiller on November 16, 2009 at 10:14 PM

So are they claiming that the fact that ACORN aides and abets only adult prostitution somehow redeems them? More to come, no doubt.

bloggless on November 16, 2009 at 10:14 PM

So ACORN is okay with pimps & whores but maybe not-so-okay with underage pimps & whores. It’s okay to be a criminal but not as okay to be More Criminal

Remind me: How does ACORN look good here? Because they’re scum, but not Total Scum?

Was he a trainee?

You could make the argument that the man doesn’t give two craps about what consenting adults do. But pulled the line when it came to underage people who could not give consent in this manner.

I’m not saying it’s right. Since prostitution is against the law. But if you are for prostitution being legal, you’d understand this. Even if you still think he’s wrong.

Per the Hannity show tonight(with Hannah and James), this is only the beginning. There is more to come later this week. Something along the lines of someone in the LA office telling them where they could go for help.

I’m just giving you the narrative that’s likely to come from this new video from the people who support Acorn.

Trov on November 16, 2009 at 10:25 PM

Breitbart seems a little too media savvy to end the ACORN saga with this, since it would give ACORN’s supporters the right to spin it as they forced Big Government to show the truth that only a handful of offices were corrupt. My guess is he’s going to wait for those self-righteous types to start making those claims at the usual big media outlets, and then hit them with one final shot.

jon1979 on November 16, 2009 at 10:25 PM

Finally, someone with common sense at AWHORE.

But, it would have been better if he had told them to get lost when the word “prostitute” first came out of their mouths.

Totally off-topic but I just want to say those Duluth Trading ads are a hoot. Internet ads usually suck (including the ones you get) (not your fault) and these are funny and the design is easy on the eyes.

YehuditTX on November 16, 2009 at 10:29 PM

Felix, not helping them with their underage prostitutes is going to reflect badly on your employee evaluation.

SagebrushPuppet on November 16, 2009 at 10:30 PM

I still say if O’Keefe had hired black actors to play these roles they could have taken this ten times further.

RightWinged on November 16, 2009 at 10:31 PM

More to come this week … Hannity was very careful as to what he could reveal.

redridinghood on November 16, 2009 at 10:31 PM

Charles Gibson could not get reached for a comment.

the_nile on November 16, 2009 at 10:31 PM

Nah, it ain’t over. It’s just a teaser to let ACORN say, “SEE, we ain’t dishonest!” Then, the other shoe drops.

Trov on November 16, 2009 at 10:18 PM

However, the point being that ACORN gets TAXPAYER money, and most people object to prostitution. Their tax money should not be used to fund even consenting adults. Period.

Mommynator on November 16, 2009 at 10:33 PM

Hey! Kudos to Felix!!!!

Ira on November 16, 2009 at 10:38 PM

I don’t think that anyone has ever said that every one of ACORN’s employees was a scum-sucking pig. Just that the organization, as a whole, is morally bankrupt.

rmgraha on November 16, 2009 at 10:44 PM

Does anybody know how the ACORN lawsuit against O’Keefe, Giles, and Breitbart turned out?

Yeah, I guess you could say Felix is not sucking scum.

That we know of. He does work for ACORN, after all.

For anyone who has ever enjoyed fishing as a past-time, we all know, if you want to catch a decent sized fish, you don’t try to set the hook at the first sign of a nibble. Wait for them to get good and comfortable, swallow the bait whole, then set the hook and enjoy the fight. Once on shore, cut of it’s head, gut it and serve it with some lemon-pepper and a bit of veggies. :)

Anita Moncrief worked for Acorn and she is doing a great job blowing the lid off of this organization. Be cautious in using too broad of a brush.

GnuBreed on November 16, 2009 at 11:41 PM

How bad is it when your tomorrows press release spins the following as a positive…

The employee did not engage in talks of under-age prostitution.

F15Mech on November 16, 2009 at 11:43 PM

Oh…this is fun! Why do I have the feeling Patterico knows exactly what’s about to go down?

AUINSC on November 16, 2009 at 11:56 PM

I think this is just the first part. Andrew made it seem like he had a bomb to drop, so I think he’s lulling them into a false victory just to cme back with a new video.

Rbastid on November 16, 2009 at 11:58 PM

More to come? Well…..didn’t Breitbart say “videos” and not “video” were coming out this week?

Why yes. Yes he did.

Well, at least we know he’s not another Muslim.

Christian Conservative on November 17, 2009 at 1:12 AM

This coming Friday s/b interesting to watch Hannity. He, the ‘whore’ and the ‘pimp’ set it up tonight. Then, more, and more to follow, also by Hannity’s account. They’re coordianting with Fox.

Breitbart is a one smart and steely-balled cookie. He’s not done with the media, nor with Obama, er ACORN.

From a Lucianne.com poster:

Unions + Acorn = Unicorns

Look i am not dissing on the guy..
maybe he is the ONE honest employee ACORN ever had
or perhaps he is a new trainee and hasnt learned the “chicago obama way yet”..

Or perhaps more than likely
Everbody in the entire world has seen the acorn tapes
so if someone poses as a prostitute
and comes in seeking tax advice..

I really really really really doubt any moron would now be giving such advice..

so in my opinion i dont believe for a second that this criminal enterprise named acorn has turned over a new leaf..

No more than likely all the employees have been
WARNED..

ACORN employee refuses to aid and abet underaged prostitution

Must be a newbie.

landlines on November 17, 2009 at 2:16 AM

Veteran,

This tape was made at the same time as the others, so I doubt he was tipped off as the others hadnt been made public yet. Who knows, he may just have gotten a weird vibe from them that others didnt…

It seems that ACORN is playing Jeopardy with Mr. Breitbart as the host.

Unfortunately for ACORN the categories are: Rope, More Rope, Noose Making, Rope over tree limb, Head Into Noose.

And ACORN just can’t stop playing…

Patterico on November 16, 2009 at 10:18 PM

Well I don’t know about compelling but it is logical, as is the wrap up.
What is obvious, they have exposed this brilliantly, and ACORN does not know how to respond.
They (ACORN)has no idea if there is more videos, using the same logic as yours.
ACORN has to sit back and take it, time after time, because each time they get up off the mat, they get knocked down.
ACORN has tried to take the cheese out of the trap each time…

Waiting for the rest of the story on Hannity this week. Lets see how deep ACORN can dig their hole.

Hah, Quote of the day, “Akon do not do nuttin illegitamate.”

Did he mean Acorn the race hustlers or Akon the onstage molestererererer.

Your operative word is “worked.” Felix apparently still “works” for ACORN.

Wait, was the guy told that the underage girls were illegal immigrants? Maybe he didn’t want underage American prostitutes, but wanted the trifecta of underage illegal immigrant prostitutes.

Last night on Hannity, O’Keefe said there is more to this video. It will be released sometime this week.

This guy takes them or refers them to someone who will help them.

meMC on November 17, 2009 at 10:46 AM

I’ll give the guy some slack for now. From what I hear that may go away shortly, however. Can’t wait to see the next tape.

The Ugly American on November 17, 2009 at 4:42 PM

You knew eventually the memo would get out. What they need to do now is focus on getting stories about ACORN refusing to help right-wing people. That might be a bit trickier, but it would be a good counter-point.
