Did Anti-ACORN “Journalists” Commit A Felony?
This isn’t a question being asked by some perceived left-wing loon like myself. This supposition comes from conservative writer Rachel Marsden, who raises questions about the ethical implications of what they did. We’re talking about “citizen journalists” James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who went to ACORN offices dressed as a pimp and a prostitute, secretly taping them to see if they’d use taxpayer dollars to set up their “business.”
You can’t just affix a pinhole camera on your “pimp and ho” costumes, go into the offices of a group you don’t particularly like, record what they say and publicise it. Especially when the state in which all this takes place has laws making it a criminal felony to record a conversation in the absence of both parties acknowledging or consenting.
Maryland has the option to file criminal charges if it wishes to enforce the law.Click here for reuse options!
