ACORN staff dumped thousands of sensitive documents outside a California office just days after the state launched an investigation of the community organizing group, a private investigator says.





Derrick Roach, a licensed investigator based in San Diego, told Fox News that he watched from his car as a man tossed bags of files into a trash bin outside the local branch of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now on Oct. 9. Roach said he searched the bin and found more than 20,000 documents, many containing confidential information that could put people at risk for identity theft. We're talking people's driver's license numbers, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, tax returns, credit reports," he said.

They gave some lame excuse

When reached for comment, Amy Schur of ACORN’s state office, explained why the paperwork was in the trash. “In early October, when our San Diego staff were doing an office clean-up in preparation for a major 10-station phone bank program being set up in our offices, it appears that included in the piles of garbage being thrown out may have been some documents containing private information,” Schur wrote in an e-mail to NBCSanDiego. “To the individuals whose paperwork was pulled out of the dumpster by this guy Derrick Roach – unsuccessful Republican candidate for State Rep in San Diego – we truly apologize. We will seek return of this information so that we may give proper notice of the compromising of the information as required by law.”

These guy's are as bad as it gets.I don't believe anything anyone in government says any more!
I bet the world is flat!

Sounds like the "garbage" was being left for someone to pick up
Maybe the wrong person found it. Of all things their treatment of peoples personal information is horrible. Just another strike against them.

Yeah I know it's almost like "whatever" but we need to remember how intimate obama was with acorn.

I was not making light of the situation, just pointing out the things I would look at besides the obvious. I was serious about it sounding like the papers were left for someone to pick up. As for Obama's ties to ACORN, I wonder how far up their problems will go

ACORN madness continues.

ACORN is not a government entity. Its a private organization that (at least until recently) got government funding.

I'm not claiming ACORN is a competent community organizing agency, but this is yet another non-story. Throwing out rather than shredding unwanted documents is simply more proof of lack of thought in this NGO.

Those internal documents include a sheet titled “Canvass recruitment rap,” a “script,” directed towards ACORN activists in Houston which says: “Hi, my name is ____. We are hiring Outreach Workers to remind people to get out and vote for Barack Obama in the upcoming election. One of our team members spoke to you today and you signed up for our intake tomorrow. You are interested in working with us on this important election, correct?” It continues: “We’re hiring for people to go door to door talking to registered voters in Houston to get out the vote for Barack.”
