A.C.O.R.N. - truth comes too late

So, it is now revealed by the California AG's release of the whole tape of the San Diego office of A.C.O.R.N. that the tape shown on Fox Pretend News had been edited/altered, AND the A.C.O.R.N. employee who was accused of trying to help the pretend pimp and pretend prostitute actually called the cops immediately, to alert the authorities of an impending law violation ... but, it is too late - A.C.O.R.N. is bankrupt and shut down.  And that creepy O'Keefe got what he set out to do - destroy an organization by any means, regardless of whether he lied, committed fraud in the tape alteration, or sold a lie to Fox.  He is scot-free, no doubt with most of his rep intact (to other right-wing liars and frauds).  What a system - this creep will be revered and employed for all his life as a result of his fraudulent and criminal activities.  He'll probably write a book and get rich, too.  Hey, maybe the American Enterprise Institute (a "scholarly" organization) will hire him as "a scholar," to join their other hacks.  (Not-for-profit, not to be taxed)

Not to belabor the point (!!), but do you suppose that Fox and Sean Hannity will now refund the money they earned from sponsors when they abjectly repent and admit their wrong in that they hammered the morons with this story for months?  Oh, there's a problem with that "abject repentence and admittance of wrong?"

What a country.
Other than that, what a day - beasts are well, found a hair-cutter who I like, got my KY drivers license without even a vision test - this IS Kentucky, after all - and had a nice time lunching with Pam and two friends.
