Ugh. We can’t afford to have the leader of the GOP be this clueless:
Partial transcript via Gateway Pundit:
“The organization has a problem that it needs to deal with, with the Congress. I will say that current head of the organization, she has done a phenomenal job of getting out in front of it. I applaud her. I take her at her word that she wants to work to make sure that the bad apples are thrown out.”
Before all of the Giles and O’Keefe’s damning sting videos were rolled out, Bertha Lewis was in full spin mode, lying through her teeth, and attacking the messengers.
He applauds this pathetic dissembling?:
This recent scam, which was attempted in San Diego, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia to name a few places, had failed for months before the results we’ve all recently seen.
-Bertha Lewis, Chief Organizer, ACORN
She also accused Fox of spending millions, if not tens of millions” to destroy her sainted ACORN.
The relentless attacks on ACORN’s members, its staff and the policies and positions we promote are unprecedented. An international entertainment conglomerate, disguising itself as a “news” agency (Fox), has expended millions, if not tens of millions of dollars, in their attempt to destroy the largest community organization of Black, Latino, poor and working families in the country. It is not coincidence that the most recent attacks have been launched just when health care reform is gaining traction. It is clear they’ve had these tapes for months.
Giles and O’Keefe had a $1,300 budget of their own money for their entire sting operation.
Finally, Bertha Lewis is in the process of suing Breitbart, Giles, and O’keefe after saying she was grateful to them for helping ACORN root out the bad apples.
Forget “a few bad apples”…What will it take to convince some people that ACORN is rotten to the core?
