CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Videos recorded late July and early August appear to show ACORN employees in several big cities including Baltimore, Washington and New York, advising a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute to cheat on taxes, misrepresent their profession, and don’t discourage the illegal harboring of illegal immigrant prostitutes from El Salvador.

“And if anyone asks you, your business is a performing artist, which you are, okay? … so you are not lying,” says one of the ACORN workers caught on the tape. “Performing artist. So stop saying prostitution. Got it?”

At least four undercover videos have been released (see the first video here …)

The census bureau has cut ties with ACORN.
The IRS has cut ties with ACORN.
But seven senators have NOT voted to cut fund to ACORN

Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

The following have been labeled ‘the magnificent seven’ or … the ‘not-so-magnificent seven’by bloggers:

What senators did not vote to cut funding to ACORN?
Roland Burris (D-IL)
Bob Casey (D-PA) aka Robert Patrick ‘Bob’ Casey, Jr.
Dick Durbin (D-IL) aka Richard Joseph ‘Dick’ Durbin
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Patrick Leahy (D-VT)
Bernie Sanders (I-VT) aka Bernard Sanders
Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).


Yesterday, in an interview on the Don and Roma Morning Show on WLS 890 AM , ABC News anchor Charlie Gibson, chuckled and said he knew nothing about the undercover video sting.

FOXNews covered a follow-up interview by Griff Jenkins with Roland Burris Wednesday morning.
FOXNews Griff Jenkins walking interview with Roland Burris after the vote [TRANSCRIPT] …

JENKINS: Just a comment on yesterday’s vote? [ASKING BURRIS FOR A COMMENT]
JENKINS: Senator, wanted to ask you … Why you voted against cutting off funding for ACORN?
BURRIS: [LONG PAUSE] I voted FOR ACORN
JENKINS: I know that … I’m just wondering … uh … your vote … I mean … ACORN is on tape helping to set up houses of prostitution with underage girls from Central America, and I’m wondering if the taxpayers of Illinois really want to support an organization like that.
BURRIS: [looks deliberately incredulous, confused and laughs] I thought you had a question, not a statement.
JENKINS: Well my question is why did you vote? …
BURRIS: ’cause I wanted to support ACORN. I supported ACORN … it’s that simple.
JENKINS: Do you continue to support ACORN?
BURRIS: I supported ACORN in Illinois. That’s correct, I supported ACORN.
And do you still? Despite what’s come out in the news about the organization … do you still support’em?
BURRIS: [PAUSE] You got a problem?
