And Anyone Is Surprised?

No.  But the Kool-Aiders will discount it.  Salon.com reports:

Brooklyn Prosecutors Clear Local ACORN Office

An investigation finds James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles edited to make ACORN look worse

A four-month investigation by the Brooklyn district attorney found no evidence that the local ACORN office had engaged in any criminal conduct, despite the hype conservative media gave to tapes of a fake prostitute asking for help from the organization.

“They edited the tape to meet their agenda,” a law enforcement source told the New York Daily News, which reported the investigation’s results on Monday.

The Brooklyn office was one of several ACORN sites visited by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles for their hidden camera report that, they claimed, “proved” the organization was helping prostitutes and pimps engage in child sex slavery. (Though Breitbart seems to like pretending otherwise, there was no actual prostitution involved.) But as the decision by prosecutors not to file any charges underscores, the only thing O’Keefe really proved is that ACORN employed some people who were easily duped into playing along with his stunt.

The GOP has painted ACORN as Satan on earth.  An evil liberal subversive and criminal organization.  What a surprise that ACORN has a few dim wits working for them and GOP propagandists fabricated and hyped something to undermine a group whose main crime is that they mobilize voters.  And those voters tend to cast their ballots for Democrats.
