    Default Zealous Rutgers Grad Topples ACORN

    The Senate voted 83-7 on Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN and the Census Bureau severed its ties with the group for the '10 headcount.

    ACORN tormenter honed his skills at Rutgers

    Back in 2004, when he was the editor of a conservative magazine at Rutgers University, James O'Keefe III mounted a satirical campaign to ban Lucky Charms cereal from campus dining halls on the premise the breakfast fare was offensive to Irish-Americans.

    The operation, which included a hidden-camera video with a Rutgers dining services official, was intended to demonstrate what O'Keefe saw as the absurdity of political correctness.

    Two years later, while a law student in California, the Bergen County native took on larger prey, using the same undercover tactics to expose crooked counselors at Planned Parenthood.

    Now, with a string of shocking hidden-camera videos on the national group ACORN, O'Keefe has scored his biggest coup, stirring up a tempest that has resulted in a criminal investigation of ACORN employees, a denunciation of the group by the White House and congressional action to cut off millions of dollars in funding.

    Posing as a prostitute and pimp, O'Keefe and Giles sought advice about obtaining loans for a proposed brothel, at one point dropping the fictitious nugget that they planned to use underage girls trafficked from El Salvador. Profits from the venture, the pair said, would fund a future congressional campaign.

    A camera rolled as ACORN employees in Brooklyn, Baltimore, Washington D.C. and San Bernadino, Calif., told O'Keefe and Giles how to evade law enforcement, shield their assets from the government and win loans for their illicit endeavor. The videos began airing last week, building outrage with each new revelation.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Just shows you how inept the government is when it takes a couple of youngsters to get it done.

    I don't particularly care, but the Senate and the Census Bureau seem to.

    How can you not care? this proves that the president wants to set up brothels funded by tax increases!
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    I have actually seen folks on other boards who really do believe this. More than a few.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    50 mil held back. They'll raise 50 mil privately to make up for it. The Census will go on without them.

    Like I said, who cares.
