ACORN Update: Faux Hooker Is FIU Student With "Bulldog Attitude"

Stories in the New York Post and today's Palm Beach Post confirm that the tan, leggy hooker in the ACORN hoax videos is in fact an FIU student. Hannah Giles, one of two college kids who traveled around the country on a $1,300 budget shooting videos of ACORN workers making asses of themselves, is also the daughter of self-promoting hoohaa and Aventura pastor Doug Giles of Clash Church and Clash Radio. One of the senior Giles' many motivational tomes, The Bulldog Attitude, is sold on Amazon.com. Writes one reviewer of Pastor Giles' self-help advice: "The bulldog attitude translates into an intolerant attitude towards everyone else who isn't on the same page."

Shall we speculate here about how much of this message the younger Giles may have absorbed from her daddy? The too-hip-for-thou Clash Church appears to have been founded by a pubescent marketing firm hopped up on Coca-Cola and thrash metal: "An energetic church that meets you right where you are" goes the tag line. Daddy Giles appears in sunglasses and open-necked shirt against a background of garage band, mouthing inanities about the devil in a voice evidently modeled on The Big Bopper. Everything -- from Daddy Doug's three-minute video chants to any of his many self-published books -- is for sale in the online church store.

Looks like Hannah G is a chip off the old mutt.
