Graffiti inspired by the advocacy group Acorn and its recent troubles has started showing up in Echo Park.Someone has been spray painting the message "Acorn-funded prostitution zone" on walls in the area.

The reference is to the recent hidden camera videos in which two Acorn employees, one in San Bernardino, were taped apparently advising a couple posing as a prostitute and a pimp.

Meanwhile, the justice department inspector general says he is investigating whether Acorn sought or received any grant money from the department.
