Derrick Roach, a licensed San Diego investigator paid an impromptu visit to the city's ACORN branch on Oct. 9 and watched as a man tossed bags of files into a Dumpster outside the building.

After ACORN staff left, he discovered more than 20,000 documents he believes point to illicit relationships between ACORN and a bank and a labor union.

Also tossed in public view in the Dumpster, were people's driver's license numbers, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, tax returns, credit reports, a crime in California.

When our San Diego staff was doing an office clean-up some documents containing private information may have been thrown out, according to Amy Schur, state head organizer for California ACORN, in an e-mailed statement.

The documents suggest connections to the California Teachers Association and to Citibank.

" ‘ACORN was acting as an agent’ for Citibank, Roach charged.”

Citibank ran an outreach program through ACORN that utilized the group's local staff. That relationship has been severed, Citigroup told FoxNews.com in an e-mail.

The California Teachers Association was "funneling information to ACORN for political activity, not illegal, but requires full disclosure by both ACORN and the CTA, and so far he hasn’t found any disclosure..

The group is now under investigation by a number of city, state and federal agencies, and Congress has cut off funding for the group.

On Oct. 1, California Attorney General Jerry Brown launched a state investigation of ACORN.
It was just eight days later that Roach says he retrieved the sensitive files

Are you surprised by these latest actions by ACORN and what are you’re comments?
Update: "In one document shared with FoxNews.com, an ACORN employee's name, address, date of birth, Social Security number and driver's license number were revealed, and photocopies of the employee's license and Social Security card were also included."

They can't even protect their own!
Update 2: It also raises questions about announcing that you're going to investigate a crooked organization like this. Just walk in the door with warrants and confiscate all documents.

How many landfills are full of evidence all accross the nation.
