Well, ain’t this something.
James O’Keefe, who has made something of a name for himself leading a war against housing advocates ACORN (admittedly, they’re not all saints there but they do a lot of great work) has been arrested by the Feds after he allegedly tried to bug the phones in the office of Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu.
According to the press release, O’Keefe and three other men — one of whom is Robert Flanagan, the son of the US Attorney for the Western District of Louisiana William Flanagan — tried to gain access to Landrieu’s office by posing as telephone repairmen.
Now, for those who missed it… O’Keefe launched a YouTube campaign against the group, trying wherever possible to get staffers to do things that were illegal. And while he was successful in some regards — and those people were fired — he also was far from a saint himself.
While O’Keefe tried to be judge and jury and convict people based on insinuation, I feel it’s worth pointing out that he is innocent until proven guilty.
A courtesy he never extended.
