ACORN Announces Reforms After 'Pimp,' 'Prostitute' Videos

• Fox
 Undercover videos shot by independent filmmaker James O'Keefe and partner Hannah Giles at four ACORN offices — Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Brooklyn, N.Y., and San Bernadino, Calif. — led to the firing of four employees and the launch of a criminal investigation by the Kings County District Attorney's Office.

The U.S. Census Bureau severed ties with the group last week in the wake of the controversy and the Senate voted 83-7 on Monday to block the Housing and Urban Development Department from giving grants to ACORN, meaning the organization would not be able to win HUD grants for programs such as counseling low-income people on how to get mortgages and for fair housing education outreach.
