When ACORN, America’s largest grassroots community organizing group, became a major player in the 2008 presidential election, big businesses, Republicans and right-wing activists were threatened. They found unexpected allies in a pair of amateur journalists posing as a pimp and prostitute to expose the group via hidden-camera. Watch the political drama, and spawn of Breitbart Media, unfold.
