(Newser) – Andrew Breitbart—whose conservative website aired the ACORN sting videos—decided to mosey down to an ACORN protest in Los Angeles this week, and he's not happy with the rough treatment he got. He blogs that he was harassed and threatened by the "dregs of society" so badly it left his cameraman shaking. Rest assured, audio and video will be going up soon.

"When they were wearing their red shirts—how appropriate—and with cops around, everything was cool." When the rally broke up and "the shirts came off, I could see them for what they really were: common street thugs." He says he has one woman on tape "proudly confessing" to illegal or at least unethical activities. "The ACORN story is far from over. There are more videos to come next week. You’ve seen the Baltimore story, the Philadelphia story, the New York story. Now you will know about the LA story."
