ACORN Worker Can Sue James O'Keefe for Illegal Recording

Former worker was fired due to famous video.

A federal judge last week allowed a lawsuit against conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hanna Giles to proceed, according to Courthouse News Service.

Former ACORN worker Juan Carlos Vera sued O'Keefe and Giles in 2010 for allegedly illegally taping their confidential conversation to make the now infamous "ACORN pimp" video. After the heavily-edited video was released in 2009, Vera was fired from ACORN and Congress later voted to defund the organization, which led to its bankruptcy.
