ACORN CEO’s Press Release
The CEO of ACORN has issued a press release, dealing with the “sting” video tapes that have been in heavy rotation on Fox News.
In a press release, ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis says, that as “a result of the indefensible action of a handful of our employees,” the group will immediately stop accepting anyone into ACORN office for service programs, will conduct in-service training of staff, and begin an audit “to review all of the systems and processes called into question by the videos,” to be conducted by the group’s Independent Advisory Council. …
“We have all been deeply disturbed by what we’ve seen in some of these videos,” Lewis said. “I must say, on behalf of ACORN’s Board and our Advisory Council, that we will go to whatever lengths necessary to reestablish the public trust.� For nearly forty years, ACORN has given voice to communities, and gotten results.� Right now, our nearly 500,000 member are working their hearts out for quality, affordable healthcare for every American and to help stop the foreclosure crisis.� We must get this process right, so the good work can go forward.”
