James O’Keefe Must Pay ex- ACORN Worker $100,000 in Phony Pimp Video Settlement

via utsandiego.com:

“Activist James O’Keefe has agreed to pay $100,000 and express regrets to a former National City ACORN worker who was secretly videotaped in a conservative sting operation in 2009.

The worker, Juan Carlos Vera, sued O’Keefe and cohort Hannah Giles for their visit to the ACORN office pretending to be a pimp and prostitute. Giles settled the claim filed against her last summer.

The video became a national sensation, purporting to show the ACORN worker discussing with the couple the use of federal housing money to set up a prostitution ring.”
