Free pass for tax cheats and mortgage fraudsters -- if they happen to be ACORN 

New York residents who want to cheat on their taxes and file fraudulent mortgage applications can breathe easy today. Brooklyn DA Charles Hynes has announced he will give you a free pass.

Employees at the U.S. liberal grass-roots group ACORN who were caught on video giving tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute have been cleared of criminal wrongdoing, New York prosecutors said on Monday. The organization has been reeling since a YouTube video was disseminated last September showing ACORN workers giving advice on how to flout the law to two conservative activists who posed as a pimp and a prostitute...Following a five-month investigation, no criminal wrongdoing was uncovered, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said in a statement.

Well, he'll give you a free pass as long as you're a left-wing interest group with its own ballot line in New York State (the Working Families Party) that just endorsed him for re-election last year.

The only surprise here is that it took him five months to produce this whitewash.
