The video set up by conservative activist-reporters James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles — which seemed to capture ACORN employees advising a pimp and prostitute how to get a mortgage — was deemed by the Brooklyn District Attorney's office to be a "heavily edited" splice job, after a five-and-a-half-month probe. Sources told the Post that "many of the seemingly crime-encouraging answers were taken out of context so as to appear more sinister." No charges will be filed. [NYP]
