WASHINGTON -- An attorney brought in by the community-organizing group ACORN has found no pattern of intentional, illegal conduct by ACORN staffers on undercover videos shot by conservative critics of the group.

The lawyer, former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger, says there were lapses, however. He said the advice that ACORN staffers gave to a woman and a man posing as a prostitute and her boyfriend resulted from lack of training, lack of procedures and a lack of on-site supervision by ACORN offices.

Harshbarger (HARSH"-barg-ur) says ACORN should return its focus to community organizing and should hire an independent ethics officer. ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis called the report "part vindication, part constructive criticism and complete roadmap for the future."
