The Story behind the Acorn Videos

Hosted by

Conservative Republicans scored a political victory this week when Congress voted to defund ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Last year, the activist group that works with poor blacks and Hispanics was accused of voter fraud. Now it's been hit with a sting operation, for attempting to buy homes to run as houses of prostitution. On videotapes running on Fox News, YouTube and other Internet sites, ACORN workers appear to be counseling them in a helpful way. Carol Leonnig reports for the Washington Post.
