ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis tells CNN's Rick Sanchez how he plans to "reestablish the public trust" in her organization in the wake of undercover videos of a fake pimp and prostitute obtaining ill-mannered advice from ACORN employees.
"This is a well-orchestrated, well-funded, concerted relentless campaign to attack this organization," Lewis said.
Lewis also thinks the tapes are doctored, and the footage was "outrageous" and "indefensible." "I will not tolerate unprofessional [behavior,]" said Lewis, who "took swift action" and fired four employees who appeared in the films.
Meanwhile, Sanchez calls out ACORN's credibility problem in the wake of a voter fraud scandal, and Lewis immediately denied "sloppy voter registration," claiming they turned in hinky votes.
