ACORN temporarily suspends Ohio services

COLUMBUS, Ohio — The state leader of ACORN says the community organizing group has suspended services in Ohio amid the fallout over hidden-camera videos from other states.

The videos produced by conservative activists appear to show ACORN employees offering a couple advice on setting up prostitution businesses.

Ohio director Amy Teitelman says ACORN — or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — is under attack from people who want to catch the group doing things that look bad. So, client services won't be offered for about a month in Ohio while new procedures and training are put in place that Teitelbaum says will make ACORN less vulnerable.

The group operates in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus and claims to have 7,500 dues-paying members in Ohio.
