VINTAGE VERITAS: The fall of ACORN [Video]

Almost 15 years ago, Hannah Giles and I went into ACORN offices across the country posing as a prostitute and pimp to expose the organization for what it was proven to be: DEEPLY AND IRREDEEMABLY CORRUPT. We went to ACORN offices in Baltimore, Washington D.C., New York, and other cities. We exposed their employees telling Hannah and I how to commit tax fraud and get away with underage prostitution rings. ACORN and its Corporate Media allies attempted to play the story down when we launched the first video. They still tried to play it down when we launched a second video. By the time the third video came out, they knew their defense of the indefensible was doomed. In honor of that bombshell investigation, which led to Congress pulling hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars from ACORN, we produced a Vintage Veritas video to remind you of the impact the truth can have in politics and society at large. This story proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Project Veritas stories self-effectuate accountability. Skeptics try to tell me that “nothing ever happens” to the corrupt people we expose. They question our resolve and our desire to see justice delivered. Let this be a reminder to everyone – and a warning to the corrupt actors in 2022 – that you WILL be held accountable for your actions. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
