(Newser) – ACORN is weighing legal action after another undercover sting tape emerged, this time in Brooklyn, the New York Post reports. Like a tape made in Baltimore, the new footage shows a man and a woman dressed as a pimp and a prostitute getting advice on housing loans. “Honesty is not going to get you the house," says an ACORN staffer. "You can't say what you do for a living.”

The community organizing group is considering a lawsuit against the activists who made the tapes, arguing that the filming is a felony banned by statutes in DC and Maryland. Fox News and a website that also broadcast the films also may be named in the suit. Said one of the filmmakers: “Bring it on.”
