ACORN Files Suit In Maryland

Via Memeorandum:

ACORN has filed suit against filmmakers James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles as well as In addition to ACORN, employees Tonja Thompson and Shera Williams are listed as plaintiffs.

Bertha Lewis, head of ACORN, speaking to Chris Wallace of Fox this weekend:

We've made sure since I've become the CEO that affiliates have firewalls
between them. I know that back last year we were outraged that the board didn't
know about the previous chief organizer's activities.

I've completely overhauled all of our finances, all of our controls.
And he was fired immediately, just as in this instance with these tapes we
terminated folks immediately.

... and making sure that our corporate structure is aboveboard,
it is open. The "R" in ACORN stands for reform. And not only do we think we want
to reform public policy, but internally let's have some reform...

If Lewis is honestly intent on ensuring that ACORN is "aboveboard", why are they suing the filmmakers and Breitbart rather than thanking them for bringing the corrupt employees to the organization's attention? Further, if the employees were not acting on behalf of ACORN and within understood parameters, why have they been allowed (invited?) to join ACORN in its lawsuit?

I am not sure that a lawsuit is necessarily a bad thing. It is my understanding that the suit opens ACORN to the discovery process. That could make things very interesting.

I will pray that acorn LOSES the suit. This has NOTHING do with "recording" laws being broken. This has to do with the simple fact that acorn was CAUGHT and EXPOSED for the liars that they are and what do liars do as usual? They RAIL. Liar spelled backwards is Rail.

That's all fine for the NWO freaks installing cameras on street poles everywhere and them wanting to vaccinate people with RFID chips and never mind the people screaming violation and privacy. But when the same recording tactics are used on the freaks, they make a big circus out of it and cry wolf.

See the hypocrisy. You can't have it both ways. The TRUTH ALWAYS comes out in the end. Tit for tat, butter for fat.
