California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling for a full investigation into the California chapters of ACORN.

The governor sent a letter to California Attorney General Jerry Brown yesterday urging him to investigate ACORN's California activities. In the letter, he referred to "news stories regarding the ACORN organization that have concerned me greatly."

Schwarzenegger was motivated to send the letter after viewing a video released by BigGovernment.com showing a San Diego worker giving tips on how to smuggle underage girls into the country.

ACORN has come under fire recently after workers in numerous cities were caught on tape giving tax advice to Conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles of BigGovernment.com who posed as a prostitute and pimp.

Barack Obama has strong ties to the organization dating back to the early 90s. As a Chicago attorney, he once represented ACORN in court. And last year he donated $800,000 to the group to help him "get out the vote" during his campaign for president.

In the video series, ACORN workers were overly enthusiastic about helping the Caucasian couple circumvent the law and evade taxes, but low-income blacks -- who ACORN is supposed to represent -- complained that ACORN workers virtually ignored them:

Outside the Sacramento office, Ruby Bradley said she was highly skeptical of the organization. She said she once applied for help with a housing loan with ACORN, but never got a response.
"I think it was poor business," Bradley said.

That complaint was echoed by Demario Anthony of Sacramento, who said his aunt's application was ignored.
"She stopped dealing with them," Anthony said. "We asked what happened, and she said she didn't want to talk about it." Read more...

A scatterbrained ACORN worker in San Bernardino gives prostitution tax evasion tips to a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp (so what else is new?). But as an added bonus, the ACORN worker, who admits to committing every illegal act under the sun, confesses to murdering her husband (yea, right). She sounds just a little grandiose and delusional.

According to Hotair.com, the Senate has voted to cut off federal funding to the criminal enterprise, ACORN. This move comes after BigGovernment.com's explosive hidden-camera expose's into the fraudulent activities of the community organizing group that has been under investigation for years for voter registration fraud.

In 2008 Barack Obama donated $800,000 to ACORN, whose 400,000 members helped "get out the vote" in many urban areas using deceptive means such as registering dead people to vote.

Obama worked for the organization in the early 90s, and even helped train the members in community organizing tactics. The photo above of Obama training ACORN members was scrubbed from ACORN's website before the election.

After two videos hit the Internet last week, and one video released yesterday showing ACORN workers in Baltimore, NY and DC giving tax evasion advice to a woman posing as a prostitute, Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) introduced an amendment to strip ACORN of all federal funding last night. The Senate passed the amendment 83-7.

And not a moment too soon: another damning video is set to hit the Internet today. According to Fox Channel's Glenn Beck, this video will "blow your mind."

So far there's been no word from Obama, who as a Chicago attorney once represented this criminal organization in court. And together with Nancy Pelosi, Obama earmarked $8 BILLION in federal funding to ACORN after bringing the group in as a "partner" in the 2010 Census count.

On Friday, the Census bureau moved to cut ties with ACORN citing the organization's questionable history.

Remember the couple who posed as a fake pimp and prostitute in order to get tax advice from ACORN workers in Baltimore and DC? Well, the Brooklyn, NY office was hit next, and the workers there gave the same advice "Don't say you're a prostitute...," "Honesty is not going to get you the house...," "You can't say what you do for a living."

Mayor Bloomberg spoke out on the controversy today.

"Prostitution is illegal in this state and I don't know why they would -- why an organization like ACORN, who's trying to encourage voter turnout and voter registration, why they're getting involved in any of that stuff," Bloomberg said. "But clearly it's not appropriate and they shouldn't have been doing it. Whether they broke a law or not I don't know. You'll have to talk to the legal (authorities)."

There are other videos yet to come! ACORN can no longer continue to make excuses for their criminal enterprise. Remember this is the organization that Barack Obama trained as a senator. He also represented this group in court as their attorney. Obama and the Dems earmarked $8 billion in the stimulus plan for ACORN.

After the first video hit the Internet last week, the Commerce Dept. cut all ties with ACORN for the 2010 census.

Barack Obama can no longer continue to give this criminal enterprise your tax dollars to operate! Expect a press release from ACORN firing the NY workers in a addition to the four that were fired last week.

In a move that's sure to anger the Big Cahoona (pictured above), the Census bureau cut ties with the community organizing group ACORN yesterday after the group's criminal activity was brought to light in hidden camera videos that hit the Internets earlier this week.

As most of you know, Barack Hussein Obama trained ACORN members in community organization tactics when he was an Illinois state senator.

What you probably don't know is, after Obama was elected president, his chief of staff, Rham Emanuel, attempted to seize control of the census bureau from the Commerce Department, but the power grab was shot down after a public outcry.

Shady Obama then announced ACORN as a "national partner" in the 2010 census. Obama and the Dems also funneled over $8 billion of your tax dollars to ACORN in the last stimulus package.

Part of the loot would have gone to hiring staff and training volunteers to "collect" census data in 2010.

The Democrats (and Obama) were counting on unscrupulous ACORN members to tamper with the collection "data" that would magically inflate the number of Democrats in urban districts and give the Democrats control over Congress in 2010.

But that won't be happening now, thanks to a very brave man who heads the Census bureau.

Robert M. Groves, Census director sent a letter to the National Headquarters of ACORN yesterday informing the group that it was severing all ties for the 2010 census work.

Citing "sufficient concern" from the public over past investigations against ACORN for multiple acts of voter registration fraud, Groves wrote:

“Unfortunately, we no longer have confidence that our national partnership agreement is being effectively managed through your many local offices. For the reasons stated, we therefore have decided to terminate the partnership."

Meanwhile two more ACORN workers were fired in Washington DC Friday after they were caught on tape advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute how to evade federal taxes and set up an illegal brothel in the city.

Less than 24 hours earlier, ACORN fired two Baltimore city workers who were also caught on hidden camera giving the same couple tips to evade taxes and smuggle underage girls into the country to be exploited as sex workers.

Not surprisingly, HotAir.com has learned that Baltimore City State’s Attorneys Office is initiating an investigation -- not into ACORN's criminal activities -- but into a possible eavesdropping violation against filmmaker James O'Keefe (the fake pimp) because the audio portion of his videos "could possibly have been obtained in violation of Maryland Law."

Coincidentally, the State Attorney is a Democrat who donated the maximum amount to Obama's presidential campaign last year.

By now you've heard about the two Baltimore ACORN workers who were fired for coaching a fake pimp and his prostitute on tax evasion.

A worker is seen on undercover video footage advising the prostitute to list her occupation as "performance artist."

When the pimp told the ACORN workers he planned to smuggle 13-year-old prostitutes from outside the country, one worker advised him to list 3 of the underage girls as independent minors on his income tax form!

ACORN fired the two workers claiming the two workers "did not meet ACORN’s standards of professionalism.”.

But ACORN has come under fire recently for blatant acts of fraud including voter fraud and helping to rig the results of the last presidential election. Last week, Florida law enforcement officials rounded up 11 ACORN workers and charged them with knowingly falsifying voter registration cards and registering ineligible voters in 2008.

By the way, Barack Obama showed his gratitude to ACORN by funneling $8.5 billion of your tax dollars into the stimulus bill that went directly to ACORN.
