Does Hannah Giles want to amend her ACORN pimp spin?

Her recent declaration was quite definitive:

"We never claimed that he went in with a pimp costume," said Giles. "That was b-roll. It was purely b-roll. He was a pimp, I was a prostitute, and we were walking in front of government buildings to show how the government was whoring out the American people."

Of course, 'never' is a dangerous word in terms of making sweeping denials, especially in the age of Google, and especially when Giles and her ACORN partners, James O'Keefe and Andrew Breitbart, were so talkative last year about their ACORN sting. (I've already documented how both men pushed the phony dressed-as-a-pimp storyline.)

So before I write anything else on this topic, and as a courtesy to Giles, I'll ask again: Does she intend to stand by her claim that she and her cohorts "never" suggested O'Keefe was dressed as a pimp when he entered the ACORN offices?
