    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.

    Nope. You're just parroting the MSM reaction. Watch the tapes yourself. You keep bringing up Vera but there is a lot more to this than just the Vera confrontation.

    Are you advocating to look only at the video and not consider the context or documented actions not represented in the video?

    Of course not. If Vera was 100% innocent he wouldn't have been canned. However, there is more to this than Vera and California. Did you watch O'Keefe's surveillance of the Baltimore ACORN office?

    Try watching all of the tapes available instead of letting yourself being spoon fed by the MSM.

    None of you libs have watched one iota of tape. You just go along with whatever the media tells you to think. Waller in your own ******* ignorance. I don't care.

    Where? Not on here. I sampled a few videos and all were their edited videos, including all the ACORN videos.

    Ah, yes. Makes a weak attempt at finding the unedited videos then claims he can't find any. Since he supposedly can't find any he will now use the excuse that there weren't any. Big powerful ACORN got taken down somehow by a guy making edited fake videos will be what he will continue to preach. Talk about conspiracy theories. Sorry, Husker. I've had enough of your ******** that I can take. You're blocked.

    Seems someone doesn't like to back up their opinions with any facts and data, or even links. That's disappointing.

    This ping pong match brings to mind Jeff Spicoli dealing with Mr. Hand.

    Why don't you link us to some RT propaganda while you're at it.

    You sound irritated. I must have got a little too close to the truth. Anyway, I'm just asking you to go look at the tapes. That's all. Sorry if that's too hard for you.

    He did stings in Baltimore, Philadelphia, DC, Brooklyn, San Diego and San Bernardino. Each one catches corruption. But I'm sure all of them were "heavily edited" to ensnare innocent people.

    If you were paying attention, Bubba I already discussed that above. All I'm asking from you is to actually try to think for yourself instead of mindlessly following liberal groupthink. That's all.

    Yet when I asked to get links to the unedited tapes which Monahorns said exist this was the response:
    You're saying...go look at the edited tapes, the ones James O'Keefe built for a specific narrative AND ignore any other relevant facts, like Mr. Vera. Only one person on this thread has resorted to name calling and vulgarity. Who is irritated again?

    In nearly every "project" the answer has been yes. It's O'Keefe's shtick. He purports to be someone he's not trying to get something salacious said on video then edits it to fit a predetermined narrative. Heck, he says as much in his opening monologues to his videos. Of course, in the more high profile incidences where his videos have been critiqued it's been proven that he's edited the videos to leave out key contextual items. Like Mr. Vero who said "I cannot help you" 6 times before finally going along with O'Keefe's plan, then reported O'Keefe to law enforcement. Of course, those 6 times where Mr. Vero tries to say "no thank you" are conveniently missing from his produced video. Why? Because it would show that the people he's ensnaring are resistant at best and simply weak enough to be badgered into saying something stupid.

    I saw the unedited tapes a few years ago. Are they now gone? I haven't checked lately. You mean to tell me you can't look at the edited tapes and see anything of truth? You can't tell when things have been spliced together or not? Dude, you've bought into some of the stupidest garbage the media puts out there without proof (even your signature is ********) but you won't believe in a tape?

    Mr. Vero was fired for a reason. I guess when somebody asked you to do something illegal you're suppose to jump right in?

    He was fired before a full investigation was completed. ACORN had filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy so a lot of people were let go. All before the California AG and the GAO had determined nothing illegal occurred. The fact that he turned around and told the law enforcement of the interaction points to Mr. Vero having no intention of doing something illegal which you can't admit for a pretty obvious reason.

    He got fired for agreeing to do something illegal. He then calls the police later. The fact that he backed off doesn't doesn't matter much. Did he have a real change of heart or was he scared he was just involved in a police sting and called the cops to make himself look better?

    Uh, Mr. Vera called law enforcement right after O'Keefe and Hannah Giles left his office per reports. Nope, that doesn't matter at all because if you considered you'd that fact, at at least in Mr. Vera's situation, James O'Keefe deceived you which should naturally lead you to question all of his videos but that might rock your world a little too much. How much have you donated to Mr. Vera, err O'Keefe to pay off Mr. Vera?

    Ah, yes. I ask a legitimate question that doesn't follow liberal groupthink and somehow I'm an O'Keefe supporter. Vera agreed to something illegal and that's a matter of fact. We don't know what made him call the cops. However, feel free to keep believing that some guy that puts out fake videos brought down ACORN. The majority of people who can actually reason know the truth that ACORN was a corrupt organization that was caught.
