Big news, folks. Breitbart confronted some ACORN protestors and came back with a post that closes with this tease:
As we headed back to our cars, Gary H. was shaking. I asked if he was OK. He said he had to play me the audio of one of the protesters that he recorded before we got there. We decided to go to a restaurant to have lunch to listen to the interview.
We did. And it’s amazing. The woman on the tape proudly confesses to things that are unethical, illegal or both. You’ll hear it tomorrow.
In short, the ACORN story is far from over. There are more videos to come next week. You’ve seen the Baltimore story, the Philadelphia story, the New York story.
Now you will know about the LA story.
You know, I think now would be an excellent time to remind you of a few facts:
- L.A. Times columnist James Rainey wrote a column strongly suggesting that nothing happened in L.A. He quoted ACORN worker Lavelle Stewart saying that Giles’s behavior had “raised a red flag.”
- I said:
Someone is going to end up with egg on their face. Who do you think it will be? Breitbart? Or the L.A. Times columnist?
If I were a betting man, I know which way I’d bet.
- I later noted that Rainey hadn’t bothered to contact Breitbart — or Giles or O’Keefe — and I asked Breitbart what he would have told Rainey about Lavelle Stewart’s denials. Breitbart used the opportunity to answer my egg-on-the-face question. Breitbart said he would have told Rainey:
As an empathetic being, I urge you to think twice before accepting the word of an ACORN employee for anything. Because every journalist who has done so has ended up with egg on his or her face.
Are you reading this, James Rainey? Because come next week, I have a feeling you’re going to have a hard time reading (or seeing) anything . . . what with all that egg that I predict is going to end up on your face.
Especially if Lavelle Stewart ends up being busted on these tapes.
