James O'Keefe arrested by FBI for felony

Now this is a really sweet story. James O'Keefe, a conservative activist that gained fame for his video accusing ACORN of trying to assist a pimp in getting federal dollars has been arrested in New Orleans and admitted to entering a federal office under false pretenses, along with three others. They were apparently posing as telephone repairmen. We don't know yet what they were trying to do, but for the charges already brought, they face up to 10 years in prison.

I wonder if this will get as much play on Fox as the ACORN story.

Was he acting as a "lone wolf" or as an agent for someone or some other Right Wing organization? Sure would like to know the answer to that question!

D'oh! From hero to zero in less than a year.

This is one conservative who won't be defending the indefensible.

Have a good laugh my liberal friends, you need it after the week you've had. Celebrate good news when you can get it.

vomamike: With a Democratic Justice Department, you have a great chance of getting to the bottom of it.

I thought this guy was already in trouble for recording people illegally? Can anyone speak to that? If so, why is this guy running around still!??!

Drew, if I'm correct, there are pending lawsuits, but they may be civil suits, instead of criminal cases.

Drew said...

Oh, that makes sense, thanks. Well the main thing is one more Republican is off the streets!

Drew said...

Any new news on this? Are these guys still in jail or did the one guy's daddy get them out!?!?

Watch FOX, they've been following it closely.

The exposer of liberal community organizin' crookery, is himself exposed as a crook. Oh, the irony!
