The newest video at BigGovernment.com from an undercover filmmaker and an associate who have rocked Washington with their revelations about ACORN, the organization for whom President Obama once worked, shows a worker appearing willing to help smuggle underage girls into the U.S. for prostitution.
In addition, the worker asks the associate, posing as a prostitute, “How much?”
“How much you charge,” the video reveals ACORN worker Juan Carlos asking the “prostitute,” played by Hannah Giles, who was accompanying filmmaker James O’Keefe. The two have unveiled a series of undercover videos from various ACORN offices across the United States, revealing a willingness to help set up a brothel and other attitudes that have prompted both houses of Congress to vote to discontinue federal funding for the group.
“For her services?” the filmmaker responds.
“Well for the entire weekend …” his assistant starts.
“Are you gonna work for me,” says the ACORN employee.
“Are you a potential client?” the filmmaker asks.
“No, no, no. I want to know what is it,” the ACORN employee says.
The worker earlier told the pair he was a lawyer, went to school in Mexico and suggests Tijuana as a shipping point for the dozen underage Salvadoran girls they explain they expect to be brought to the U.S. for prostitution.
In another video, ACORN chief Bertha Lewis took exception to the portrayal of her organization. She said the two were “thrown out from dozens of our offices.”
She said the comments by the various employees, which have included an apparently unfounded boast that one worker shot and killed an ex-husband, were “inexcusable.”
But she said “99 percent” of the group’s employees “did the right thing.”
She also described the organization as “black and brown.”

It was a video from San Bernardino in which an ACORN worker boasted of having shot her ex-husband. She also bragged she knows how to avoid detection in running a brothel.
The hidden-camera videos have been posted on BigGovernment.com, the project of Breitbart.com founder Andrew Breitbart.
ACORN, which has fired workers caught in several earlier compromising videos, has alleged they are manipulated, and has threatened a lawsuit against the filmmaker and websites, as well as Fox News, for the reports that show ACORN workers advising on how to fake tax forms, set up a child prostitution business and other issues.
The filmmaker and his associate have posed as a pimp and a prostitute, seeking advice on how to obtain federal help to get a home in which to operate their business, as well as advice on taxes and other issues.
Giles, a 20-year-old college student and political activist, originally came up with the idea for the undercover project at the beginning of a summer internship she was doing in Washington, D.C.
While jogging through part of D.C. she saw an ACORN facility, which piqued her already existing interest in undercover investigative reporting. She contacted O’Keefe, who was part of a series of undercover Planned Parenthood reports, and pitched the idea to him.
The two funded their project completely, and traveled from Maryland, to Washington, D.C., to New York to Southern California to expose ACORN.
“They (ACORN) need to be defunded. Any organization that can so much as entertain the idea of smuggling in underage girls to be used as prostitutes to fund a political campaign is obviously corrupt,” Giles told WorldNetDaily.
The results of the videos so far have been the votes in both the U.S. House and Senate, a decision by the Census to cut ties to ACORN and bipartisan condemnation of the employees’ actions.
