Letter from ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis
December 9, 2009
In late September, ACORN and its Advisory Council asked former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger to lead an independent inquiry into the circumstances and implications of the videos that led to the intense responses in Congress and the media in September and October.
Today Mr. Harshbarger released his report. ACORN’s leadership is pleased that this evaluation shows even the low-level employees portrayed in the videos did not engage in any illegal activity or seek to encourage it as the heavily-edited videos seek to imply.
