BradBlog.com - summary of Brown's investigation findings, plus links to the unedited videos themselves

Key points:
The videos were severely edited and spliced so as to misrepresent what actually happened. "The Brooklyn D.A.'s office was quoted as describing them as a 'heavily edited splice job' when his report was released several weeks ago."


"Of the four ACORN employees O'Keefe and Giles met with in three different California cities, none "committed, solicited or conspired to commit any criminal acts," says Brown in his report. "There is no evidence that any of the ACORN employees had the intent to aid and abet such criminal conduct or agreed to join in [O'Keefe and Giles purported] illegal conduct."

"ACORN did not receive billions in federal funds and did not control elections.
In fact, ACORN had received an average of just $3.5 million in federal tax dollars over each of the last 15 years. "

"No evidence that any vote was ever cast illegally, in any election, following an improper registration by an ACORN worker. In most cases, such improper registrations were discovered by ACORN themselves and reported to authorities."


--
Some of ACORN's hundreds of workers may have acted unwisely or "inappropriately" at times (of course that never happens in private business or any other large organization), but our "mainstream media" have done a horribly sloppy (or deliberately partisan?) job of investigative journalism and fair reporting.

Meanwhile, true election fraud, where thousands of voters have been improperly disenfranchised or otherwise blocked from voting (e.g., having to stand in line for hours to vote; being deliberately directed to the wrong polling places) or where voting machines have "flipped votes," etc. - there's hardly a mention of that in the media.

It doesn't matter whether or not Brown has a credibility problem. The hard evidence is there for any experts to examine. When the ACORN workers had been declared guilty by everyone on the right, no one had seen the raw footage. The raw footage is now available. That's the difference, and that's why we don't have to take Jerry Brown's word for anything. And that's why we know the ACORN workers were framed.

I said we never saw the guy dressed as a pimp while he was in the room with the ACORN workers. I said that the we never saw him actually talking in the video and we didn't see most of what was said by the "prostitute", so we had no way of knowing that they said what we were told they said while they were in the room with the ACORN workers. I said that unless we saw them talking in the room with the ACORN workers, and could see for ourselves that they were saying what we were hearing, and saw how the guy was dressed in the room with the ACORN workers, there was no reason to believe the accusations that were being made against ACORN.

"You were wrong about the accusations made against ACORN"

You were the one saying the video people were guilty until proven innocent and Acorn was innocent until proven guilty.

You still cannot say who is wrong and you do not mention any particular accusations.

You topically lump several things into one as proof of something.

Now you shrilly chant wrong wrong wrong like a little kid taunting and bullying somebody.

Seeing that the thread was about multiple accusations about Acorn other than the videos with several people making the accusations. it is rather immature to shriek "you were wrong I was right" four times in a row as it it carries more weight the more it is repeated.

Why not just shriek it 1000 times without saying who was wrong about what, then there will be no doubt.

Riginslinger, it's possible to use technology to detect edits. The raw video can easily be proven to be raw video, while edited video can easily be proven to be edited. The Attorney General of California examined the raw video, issued a statement based on that video, and then released the video to the public. Any expert can examine that video to determine whether or not it has been doctored.

Unedited ACORN Videos Tell a Vastly Different Story
        

'In the video that helped destroy the community activist group ACORN, an employee is shown supposedly helping a pimp and his hooker girlfriend set up a child prostitution and human smuggling ring. As it turns out, the truth was edited out.

As shown on the Rachel Maddow show, the unedited video includes the ACORN employee calling the police as soon as James O´Keefe and Hannah Giles, playing the pimp and prostitute, left the office. Other video was radically edited to change its meaning.

For example, an ACORN employee is heard telling Giles "don´t give up" as Giles, the "prostitute," says she wants to start a prostitution ring. Unedited, the video shows the employee was responding to Giles saying she wanted to finance a house.'

As you read on, you'll find evidence that a Times reporter knew of (and was alarmed by) a $1.5 million loan/grant that Brooklyn-based FCR gave last August to ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which had suffered severe cash flow difficulties in the wake of an embezzlement scandal.

This is incredible, reporter Stephanie Strom wrote after learning that the deal was allegedly approved without ACORN board's assent, adding that an explanation given to her doesn't hold water.

In doing so, FCR has helped bail out an organization reeling from the revelations that not only did the brother of ACORN's founder embezzle nearly $1 million in 2000 but also, as the Times reported 9/10/08, that the news was concealed by senior executives until a whistle-blower told a foundation leader about it in May.

Also, as the Times reported 10/22/08, ACORN's budget has been suffering, as it apparently owes taxes to federal and state authorities while foundations that previously supported the organization have backed off. Meanwhile, two board members, both members of a committee established to lead ACORN through its turmoil, have sued the organization, charging that ACORN was destroying financial documents and covering up improper expenditures.

The Times chose not to report on that crucial loan. But that FCR-ACORN relationship remains worthy of sunlight, given the crucial partnership between FCR and ACORN's New York affiliate in the enormously controversial Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn.

ACORN on 5/17/05 signed a Housing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that promised 2250 units of affordable housing in the project, which Lewis considered a huge victory. In exchange, ACORN agreed to publicly back the project--and has continued to do so, despite many reasons to doubt FCR's promises.

How frequently does a controversial real estate developer, who does its work regionally, bail out a struggling national activist organization, one which saw contributions decline and faced a major tax bill--after the revelation that Dale Rathke, the brother of longtime chief organizer Wade Rathke, embezzled nearly $1 million?

A federal judge has ruled that the government has to pay ACORN what they should have been paid prior to Congress' action in stripping them of their grants and contracts. It seems that singling out one organization for punitive action without a court conviction is a "bill of attainder," which is verboten by the Constitution.

The tent ceremony seemed to symbolize all that was bizarre about the project, especially as the political gyrations: Not one local legislator was present, as the city was bypassed entirely by his process, as were the state reps, due to Ratner's being shielded behind an inscrutable state agency, the Empire State Development Corporation (it proved impossible to sue it).

Or his racial manipulation: Having paid millions for support from some black leaders, he then had to hide the most prominent one, Bertha Lewis, founder and national leader of ACORN (who was contractually obliged to publicly support Atlantic Yards), replacing her on the dais with the Rev. Al Sharpton, whose group also was the target of Ratner largesse.

While Forest City provided lobster sliders for his guests, Ratner could hear the noisy protesters at the fences. But he did not worry about them entering. The tent was surrounded by layers of concrete Jersey barriers, extra high cyclone fences, and dozens and dozens of police. So much for a grand gesture of bringing something the public is supposed to treasure. Just as the process was calculated to avoid public input, so was the ceremony. More Here

A whistle-blower forced Acorn to disclose the embezzlement, which involved the brother of the organization’s founder, Wade Rathke.

The brother, Dale Rathke, embezzled nearly $1 million from Acorn and affiliated charitable organizations in 1999 and 2000, Acorn officials said, but a small group of executives decided to keep the information from almost all of the group’s board members and not to alert law enforcement.

ACORN is a monsterous group of approximately 300 smaller groups with interlocking directorates. The name ACORN was banned from receiveng federal monies by parts of the federal government including the Census Bureau. They were banned because their actions were corrupt, even criminal.

The ending of the name ACORN is a huge rope-a-dope. Meaningless, because the money will flow to the same people for the same business, just through different organizations.
