    Former ACORN employee sues O’Keefe and Giles | Raw Story

    Real justice indeed. I can't see how he won't win.

    It would be great if they picked out prominent members of the Republican Party and sued them for "slander". Maybe go after FOX?
    Well see how this plays out. Who knows? This could be a real issue in November.

    We already know what the Republican leadership thinks about the unemployed and the poor (hobos, bums, spoiled, animals who breed, dumpster divers).

    Look at what they did to an organization that helps the poor and middle class.

    Imagine Republicans helping the "middle class". I can't. It's not possible.

    Yet he was not charged with any crime.

    Does this mean you support targets of investigative journalism being able to sue all news organizations that tape them secretly, or does it only apply to the people who you like suing people you don't like?

    You really should watch more news programs. Seriously. It would make you extremely happy because what you want to see happens all the time.

    We have something called Freedom of the Press in this country.

    The operative factoid is that Jerry Brown cleared Vera of wrong-doing.

    Think about it.

    Republicans helping the middle class? You're not serious. The Republican leadership can hardly say the words "middle class".

    James O'Keefe Charged with Felony

    OJ was found innocent, but got his ass sued.

    The court takes a dim view of slandering someone to the point of costing them their job. Plus, in California, it's illegal to secretly tape someone.

    Plus, the whole "pimp and prostitute" thing was completely made up and edited. It was all a lie.

    If you call what O'Keefe and Giles doing Journalism, then you are insulting every real Journalist out there. What part of "severely edited tapes" do you not get? The severely edited part?

    Maybe you can show me a conviction against ACORN. Oh wait, you can't.
