New York residents who want to cheat on their taxes and file fraudulent mortgage applications can breathe easy today. Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes has announced he will give you a free pass.

Employees at the U.S. liberal grass-roots group ACORN who were caught on video giving tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute have been cleared of criminal wrongdoing, New York prosecutors said on Monday. The organization has been reeling since a YouTube video was disseminated last September showing ACORN workers giving advice on how to flout the law to two conservative activists who posed as a pimp and a prostitute…Following a five-month investigation, no criminal wrongdoing was uncovered, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said in a statement.

Well, he’ll give you a free pass as long as you’re a left-wing interest group with its own ballot line in New York State (the Working Families Party) that just endorsed him for re-election last year.

The only surprise here is that it took him five months to produce this whitewash.
