2 employees suspended over ACORN video

A hidden-camera video allegedly taped at the ACORN offices in Downtown Brooklyn appear to show employees of the advocacy group giving advice on hiding illegal funds.

Employees of the group are apparently seen on the video talking to a couple posing as a prostitute and her pimp. A spokesperson for the group says the employees have been suspended and an investigation into the alleged incident has been launched.

ACORN, an advocacy group, helps low- and moderate-income residents with housing issues.
