From an ACORN the mighty OBAMA grew! (Part ONE of TWO)








ACORN officials


Telling ‘Pimp,’

‘Prostitute’ How

to Lie to IRS


September 10th, 2009

(Part ONE of TWO)

(Links are in GREEN)

Officials with the controversial

community organizing group

ACORN were secretly videotaped

offering to assist two individuals

posing as a pimp and a prostitute,

encouraging them to lie to

the Internal Revenue Service

and providing guidance on how

to claim underage girls from

South America as dependents.

The videotape was

made public Thursday on


a political blog launched by

Andrew Breitbart as a

companion site to his


com blog.




In the videotape,

made on July 24,

James O’Keefe,

a 25-year-old

independent filmmaker,

posed as a pimp with a

20-year-old woman

named “Kenya” who posed

as a prostitute while visiting

ACORN’s office in Baltimore.

The couple told ACORN

staffers they wanted to

secure housing where the

woman could continue to

maintain a prostitution



the Association of

Community Organizations

for Reform Now —

bills itself as the nation’s

largest community of

low- and moderate-income

families “working together

for social justice and

stronger communities,”

according to its

Web site.




The organization has been

accused by Republicans and

conservative activists with

fraud in voter registration

drives around the country

and has been under fire since

last year for its support of

President Obama

and for its planned

participation in next

year’s census.

On the videotape,

“Kenya” can be seen

telling an ACORN staffer

that she earns roughly

$8,000 a month.

The ACORN employee then

suggests to “Kenya” that

ACORN could submit a

tax return

for 2008 showing that she

made $9,600 for the

entire year —

instead of $96,000 —

and that ACORN would

charge “Kenya” $50 instead

of the usual $150 fee for

preparing her taxes.




A spokesman for ACORN,

Scott Levenson,

when asked to comment

on the videotape, said:

“The portrayal is false

and defamatory and an

attempt at gotcha journalism.

This film crew tried to pull

this sham at other offices

and failed.

ACORN wants to see the

full video before commenting


ACORN offers tax preparation

and benefits application

services free of charge

during tax season;

it charges nominal fees

during non-tax season.




The ACORN staffer can also

be seen suggesting that the

prostitute list her occupation

as a freelance

“performing artist.”

“It’s not dancing,

trust me,”

the “pimp” says.

“But dancing is

considered an art,”

the ACORN staffer replies.

“[Exotic dancers] usually

go under performing artists,

or yeah,

they usually go under

performing arts ,

which will be what you are —

a performing artist.”

The “pimp” later says

that he and “Kenya” plan

to bring up to

13 “very young” girls

from El Salvador to work

as prostitutes.




Although an ACORN staffer

points out their plans

are illegal,

she also suggests that the

girls can be claimed

as dependents.

“What if they are going

to be making money because

they are performing

tricks too?”

the pimp says.

“If they making money

and they are underage,

then you shouldn’t be letting

anybody know anyway,”

the ACORN staffer says,

and laughs.




“It’s illegal.

So I am not hearing this,

I am not hearing this.

You talk too much.

Don’t give up no

information you’re

not asked.”

The “pimp” then asks

ACORN staffers to “promise”

not to discriminate against

his sex worker because of

“who she is and

what she does,”

according to the audiotape.

“If we don’t have

the information,

then how are we going

to discriminate?”

the ACORN staffer replies.

“You see what I am saying?”




If the girls are

under age 16,

the ACORN staffer says

on the tape,

then they are not legally

allowed to work in the state,

regardless of what they do.

“So it’s like they

don’t even exist?”

“Kenya” asks.


the ACORN staffer replies.

“It’s like they

don’t even exist.”




The staffer goes on to

suggest that as many as

three of the underage girls

can be listed as dependents

at the home,

but a “flag” will be raised

if as many as 13 are listed.

“You are gonna

use three of them,”

the staffer says.

“They are gonna

be under 16,

so you is eligible to get

child tax credit and

additional child tax credit.”

The ACORN workers also

appear to be promoting the

group’s services to the

“pimp” and “Kenya.”

A second ACORN employee

can be heard on the audiotape

suggesting that the couple

join the organization for an

annual cost of $120 prior

to attending one of its first-time

homebuyer seminars,

which are underwritten

with taxpayer funds.





when the “pimp” asks what

would happen if the

organization is somehow

connected to the scheme,

the ACORN staffer replies,

“First of all,

it’s not gonna damage us

because we not gonna know.

And with your girls,

you tell them,

‘Be careful.’

Train them to keep

their mouth shut.”

“These girls are like 14,

how can we trust them?”

the pimp asks.

“Just be very, very careful,”

the ACORN staffer says.

“Whatever you do,

always keep your eyes in

the back of your head.”

Reached by FOX News,

O’Keefe said he was “shocked”

at the level of assistance

provided by ACORN staffers.




“I was prepared for

them to call the police,

throw me out of the

office and be hostile,”

he said.

“Without hesitation,

they helped me every

way they could with evading

taxes and setting me

up with a brothel,

with getting around

federal tax laws

doing everything they

could to help us.

I was completely shocked.”

House Republicans issued

a report in July accusing

ACORN of engaging in a

scheme to use taxpayer

money to support a partisan

political agenda.

California Rep. Darrell Issa,

the top Republican on the

House Committee on Oversight

and Government Reform,

called for a criminal investigation

into the group, which dismissed

the report as a

“partisan attack job.”
