    Ho, no!

    A tag team pair of undercover activists, posing as a pimp and prostitute, has exposed the Brooklyn office of the left-leaning organization ACORN as the latest branch of the embattled group to be caught up in a housing scandal, the New York Post reported.

    "Honesty is not going to get you the house," a loan counselor at the officers told the conservative activists turned faux flesh-peddlers who were posing as a couple seeking a mortgage, according to the Post.

    The Brooklyn office was the latest branch of the organization exposed in a hidden-camera operation. Four ACORN employees have been fired as a result of earlier stings at offices in Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

    James O'Keefe, 25, and Hannah Giles, 20, were told to lie about their profession in order to secure a loan.

    "You know, what goes on in the house we don't care," a counselor told the couple. "We just help you with the mortgage." 

    Giles, who went by the name "Eden," was told she should say her profession is a "freelancer."

    "Don't say that you're a prostitute thing or whatever," counselor Volda Albert Albert said.

    She suggested Giles open two accounts at two different banks and deposit no more than $500 a week in order not to draw suspicion. She was told her to hide the rest, according to the Post.

    "When you buy the house with a back yard. You get a tin ... and bury it down in there, and you put the money right in, and you put grass over it, and you don't tell a single soul but yourself where it is," she said.

    Videos of the "sting" were posted on BigGovernment.com.

    ACORN, aka " the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now," was accused of voter fraud during the 2008 presidential election.
