ACORN: We Turned Giles and O’Keefe Away in L.A.

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:50 pm



ACORN took the bait, and the L.A. Times dutifully reported it:

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.”

[Updated at 10 p.m.: In an email, ACORN disputed O’Keefe’s claim, saying that the filmmaker earlier had gone to an ACORN office on South Grand Avenue in L.A. with the scenario and was turned away.]

OK. I guess we’ll see.

They’ve lied before. I don’t know why they’d be telling the truth this time.

Is ACORN lying? I know which way I’d bet . . .

  1. Rainey better be hoping that Iron Chef uses crow for the secret ingredient pretty soon.

  2. I like the videos “purportedly filmed” in ACORN’s offices bit the LA Times used to describe O’Keefe and Giles did in the different locations. Cowards.

  3. Speaking of LA – To all of my LA friends, my Thanksgiving trip got re-routed to another State. We are going to the mountains of Utah for Thanksgiving. As much as I cannot wait to take my little angel skiing, I was really looking forward to seeing/meeting many of you.

  4. We have a little Thanksgiving outing planned ourselves. We’ll miss you.

  5. We will be out for Christmas in LA, which I suspect will be one of those surreal times that I would like to experience, once.

  6. Travel advisory, in LA there is no life East of Lincoln.

  7. If ACORN is speaking, because they are Democrats, that is proof in and by itself that they are lying.

    All will not be lost…it has been known to actually snow in L.A. during December (just a light dusting that’s gone with the morining Sun, but it’s better than nothing)…
    Now, if you could arrange for The Goracle to show up, we might get a full-fledged blizzard.
