Have you heard about the ACORN film maker being arrested ?

Federal authorities have arrested four men on felony charges for attempting to infiltrate Sen. Mary Landrieu’s New Orleans office, including one filmmaker who targeted the community group ACORN last year in damaging undercover videos.

Among those arrested was 25-year-old James O’Keefe, the conservative filmmaker, along with Joseph Basel, Robert Flanagan and Stan Dai, all 24. They were charged with entering federal property under false pretenses and attempting to gain access to the Democrat’s office by posing as telephone repairmen, according to a copy of an FBI affidavit unsealed Tuesday.

  • I guess O'Keefe, got a little "full of himself" after the ACORN videos and thought he was going to find some "smoking gun" in her offices. NOT a good career move.

  • Well, being corrupt and working behind closed doors seems to work for certain members of our gov't, eh? If you can't beat'em maybe they figured they should join them... And isn't this what the police do, infiltrate and then take down the bad guy or in this case, maybe the bad girl... :) Who knows???
