The Best DA Money Can Buy? ACORN DA Lets ACORN Off The Hook

Today it was announced that ACORN will not face prosecution in Brooklyn.

“On Sept. 15, 2009, my office began an investigation into possible criminality on the part of three ACORN employees,” Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said in a one-paragraph statement issued Monday afternoon.

Should anyone be surprised? The Brooklyn DA is a member of the ACORN/Working Families Party. That means he signed their pledge, and worked for their endorsement.

Just saying.

Speaking of just saying, an unidentified member of “law enforcement” dropped this unsubstantiated charge:

While the video by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles seemed to show three ACORN workers advising a prostitute how to hide ill-gotten gains, the unedited version was not as clear, according to a law enforcement source.

“They edited the tape to meet their agenda,” said the source.

Any chance they want to be specific about how exactly James and Hannah did that? If it’s true, then the anonymous law enforcer should press charges, or lose his or her job.

UPDATE: Some people want to quibble about membership in ACORN and SEIU’s Working Families Party, versus endorsement. This distinction doesn’t hold water. When a candidate accepts the endorsement/nomination of a political party, they become a de facto member of that party. Do skeptics want to make the argument that Republican candidates are not Republicans? Or that Democrat candidates are not Democrats? If a candidate accepts the endorsement of the Working Families Party, and the Democrat Party, they are members of both parties.

The Working Families Party has never been shy about how stringent its endorsement process is. You have to seek the endorsement and make a commitment to the party.
