    FBI Arrests James O'Keefe At Landrieu's Office - The Atlantic Politics Channel

    James O'Keefe, the conservative filmmaker who posed as a pimp in video stings at ACORN field offices, has been arrested by the FBI at Sen. Mary Landrieu's (D-LA) office in downtown New Orleans, in connection to what appears to be an attempt to wiretap the offiice, NOLA.com reports:

    FBI Special Agent Steven Rayes alleges that O'Keefe aided and abetted two others, Joseph Basel and Robert Flanagan, who dressed up as employees of a telephone company and attempted to interfere with the office's telephone system.

    A fourth person, Stan Dai, was accused of aiding and abetting Basel and Flanagan. All four were charged with entering fedral property under false pretenses with the intent of committing a felony.

    O'Keefe gained notoriety for his secretly filmed ACORN videos, which caused a firestorm of media intrigue surrounding ACORN after O'Keefe posted them on the Andrew-Brietbart-owned blog Big Government last year.

    It is amazing how far the Polanski loving left will reach !

    On a side note Sarah Palins Husky lifted his leg on a snow pile and Al Gore
    is now blaming the dog for contributing to the melting of the Polar ice caps.

    Interesting. I'd like to see the whole story on what they were actually trying to do. Was this for a new documentary?

    Were you not posting here when we had the various discussions about right-wingers entrapping ACORN employees? If not, one of the good things about the board is that thanks to each other we learn new things. You should go back and read some of the ACORN threads where I'm sure your point of view is well represented. Then this thread might make more sense to you.

    ACORN is a political organization that has been proven to be corrupt in just about every way imaginable. You can't defend them, so you simply try to attack one of the many, many individuals who has exposed them for the morally and intellectually bankrupt organization they are. Yes, that's right. ACORN is both morally and intellectually bankrupt with a perverse agenda.
    Could you please refrain from making personal attacks against me? They are against the rules of the forum. Thank you.

    Damn, I guess this means we won't get to see Landrieu's TOTAL corruption and raping of the American people live and in grainy video images.

    What a shame.

    I'm too tired to click links, so I've got no clue what happened. I will say that if the people in question were attempting to bug the phones of a senator, then they're in trouble, and rightfully so. I'll read up on it tomorrow.


    Entrapped Acorn? Ahahahahahahahaha!!!! Remember though everyone, Patters is the one who cares about children. Just not the one's that Acorn helps push into sexual slavery, or any others that can be exploited for political gain.

    It is always amazing the reaction of the right, to the lawbreaking of the right.. just last week their media darling was a level 3 sex offender who had committed 15 felonies... there is quite a bit of media coverage about this today, Breitbart is in denial

    The reality is that it starts with condoning illegal activity, and then commences to this.. either you obey the law or you break the law.. it is not a difficult concept.. looks like the FBI were paying attention to this, they are not usually a rapid response team...

    Richard Nixon thought it was ok to break into the DNC offices, since that time there has been continual efforts to circumvent the law for political expediency..

    Hotair says they are stupid but says Breitbart knows nothing about it.. in reality no one really knows of any complicity on other levels..

    Hot Air Blog Archive James O’Keefe arrested for trying to tap Mary Landrieu’s phones; Update: Breitbart statement added

    Fox news downplays it..

    Michelle Malkin, even agrees this is bad...

    Guys like O'Keefe were "American Heros" to the Anti American Left Wing all through the 60's.

    Barack Hussein Obama's friend Bill Ayers was one of them..
    Peter/Paul/Mary and Joan Baez sang songs about them.

    Breitbart admits paying activist who tried to bug Democratic senator

    Breitbart admits paying activist who tried to bug Democratic senator | Raw Story

    The man who made the conservative activist who posed as a pimp to undermine the community organizing group ACORN, confessed that he pays him -- while at the same time arguing he has "nothing to do with" what he does.



    Best dumb lie since "I didn't inhale"

    Well if he was doing something illegal then he needs to face the music. This changes nothing about Acorn. They are still a scum sucking worthless organization. He brought them down and I applaud him for his efforts. Regarding his efforts to tap a politicians phone, if true, that makes him an idiot and a felon.

    Alot like acorn.

    But, but, but they have never been charged in a court of law.. see the difference.. the only court they have been tried in is the court of drudge, limbaugh, hannity, coulter.. i.e. the court of right wing public opinion, all of this from the party who loves the constitution...:nono::nono::nono:
