The Brooklyn district attorney's office said Monday that its five-month inquiry is over and that no criminal activity was found.
The videos were made by conservative activists Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe, who used a hidden camera on visits to offices of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
Since then, O'Keefe has been arrested after visiting Sen. Mary Landrieu's office in New Orleans.
The Brooklyn video caught ACORN workers apparently advising the pair to bolster their housing application by lying about Giles' "profession" and laundering her earnings.
