First Lawsuit in ACORN Scandal Filed... Against the Filmmakers?

Via Politico
"ACORN filed suit today in Maryland against conservative filmmakers James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and conservative Web site for secretly taping the organization’s employees at its Baltimore office.

In the complaint, ACORN alleges that the filmmakers entered into the organization’s offices in July with a “hidden camera and microphone” and taped employees Tonja Thompson and Shera Williams. Both employees are listed as plaintiffs on the complaint, filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City.

ACORN is seeking $500,000 for each employee and $1 million for the organization in damages."
The House and Senate have both voted to defund ACORN. The census has severed ties with ACORN over the scandal. Today the IRS cut ties with ACORN. And ACORN itself fired the workers named in the lawsuit when the videos were released.

Of course the first lawsuit filed in the case should be against those who exposed the money-launderers/sex-slave traders/extortionists/child abusers/tax-frauds.
