Politico reports that ACORN is suing undercover journalists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles in Maryland for taping two ACORN employees advising O'Keefe and Giles on how to avoid paying taxes on a brothel staffed by 13 to 15 year-old prostitutes. Just yesterday, Barney Frank called for a federal investigation of O'Keefe and Giles's activities, asking the Congressional Research Service to examine "the federal and state laws that could apply to such videotaping and distribution of conversations without the consent of all parties."

Next thing you know, the sexual predators caught on MSNBC's To Catch a Predator will turn around and sue the journalists who exposed them. On the other hand, the sexual predators may have more shame than ACORN.
