er, were stolen from us?!"
Documents purported to have been taken from ACORN computers in Oklahoma City by a state lawmaker appear to be "partially doctored,” a national leader of the community-organizing group said Wednesday.
"The documents that we have seen — ostensibly taken from these computers — do not appear to reflect the work of ACORN in Oklahoma and appear to be partially doctored versions of some ACORN documents,” said Brian Kettenring, deputy director of national operations for ACORN.
Oh, of COURSE it couldn't be their data; why that would mean they were dishonest... Of course, they could claim he 'doctored' them by printing them out. Which doesn't change the content, but it all depends on what the meaning of 'is' is, doesn't it?
Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City, said the documents were recovered from two computers abandoned by ACORN workers in Oklahoma City. Reynolds said he bought the computers from the landlord of an ACORN office in Oklahoma City after the group stopped paying its lease on the office. The computers were password-protected, but he found the passwords in a drawer, he said.
ACORN didn't pay the bills? My, my, my.
"We consider our computers to be stolen property, the contents thereof stolen work product,” Kettenring said in an e-mail response Wednesday to The Oklahoman.
Well, they can bitch about it, but if they left the stuff behind when they moved out, I rather doubt they can call it 'stolen'. Not legitimately.
ACORN didn't pay the bills and moved out. Left stuff behind.
Landlord kept stuff.
Reynolds bought stuff, found the documents.
ACORN starts "IT'S A LIE!!" coverup. Like the "We never gave aid to that pimp!" coverup, I guess.
