Play associated audio

The Attorney General's office in Maryland will investigate potential wrongdoing involving the liberal activist group ACORN.

The investigation was prompted by an undercover video shot in Baltimore that shows a couple posing as a prostitute and a pimp. On the video, two ACORN workers appear to advise the couple to lie and launder their earnings to get housing aid. The employees have since been fired.

Governor Martin O'Malley says he's granted Attorney General Douglas Gansler the authority to investigate the incident. A board member of ACORN Maryland says in a statement that the group welcomes the investigation.
