It wasn't take seriously by the right because it didn't fit their narrative. The fact that Vera reached out to law enforcement within 24 hours of the meeting with O'Keefe bolsters his story. Remember, this was before he knew O'Keefe had recorded him and the conversation was a charade to entrap him. The narrative was that ACORN was some rogue organization willing to violate laws and ethics to support a liberal agenda, including supporting human trafficking. That narrative blows up unless one conveniently ignores that law enforcement was engaged. That changes the entire context of the conversation. It's also the key fact that absolved ACORN in subsequent investigations.
