ACORN Pulls Its Colbert Card
ACORN said a video involving a fake pimp and prostitute taken by James O'Keefe at the San Bernardino office was manipulated and that the organizer in the tape was trying to be funny with her responses.
"With their provocative costuming and outlandish scenario, she could not take them seriously," ACORN said in a statement. "So she met their outrageousness with her own personal style of outrageousness. She matched their false scenario with her own false scenarios."
The organizer, Tresa Kaelke, said she summoned the spirit of comedian Stephen Colbert to respond to the claims made by the fake pimp and ho.
“I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me," Kaelke said in the ACORN statement. "Like Stephan [sic] Colbert does -– saying the most outrageous things with a straight face.”
